Learn to kitesurf with Brighton Elementary Kitesurfing School’s IKO qualified instructor Chris Miles. Our school on the south coast in Sussex is accessible from London and throughout the south. We provide kitesurfing lessons and courses for beginners who just want to dip their toes and test the waters up to full IKO kitesurfing independant level certification and all our kitesurfing courses can be booked online to secure your lessons before the summer rush. Our IKO kitesurfing lessons are given according to the IKO syllabus in three main stages Discovery, Intermediate and Independent which will take place over three days in the Brighton area around Sussex. When you finish any course or part of it your progress will be logged and you then receive an IKO kitesurfer certification which records your progress for when you are kiting in the future. This tells other schools how far you have advanced in the IKO international kitesurfing system and will be indispensable if you wish to hire equipment or continue your kitesurf education without starting from scratch.
Premium Option :
Lagoon Watersports and BEKS Brighton offer you a unique discounted opportunity to ease the learning process ensuring you get the most out of your time on the water. Using the system 2.0 wake cable tow system at Lagoon Watersports you will be able to get comfortable being in the water with a board on your feet and be able to concentrate exclusively on the board skills without having to worry about the kite above your head. All of the lagoons operators are highly experienced cable coaches that will get you up and riding in the calm waist deep waters of the Lagoon. They will focus on deep water starts,edging on both the toes and the heels and riding both left foot forward and right foot forward. Once you have completed your session at lagoon watersports you will be feeling a lot more comfortable with a board on your feet and you can then take to the water with us.
Kitesurfing lessons in the water are generally restricted to four hour windows per day, around low tide and we arrive 15 min early to change and take 20 min to dry off after, so plan for around five hours for each stage of your kitesurfing course. The IKO water courses are run with a partner, unless you have booked to go private, so if you did not come with anyone we will match you up before the beginning of your course.You can of course opt for one to one lessons or take a Powerkite lesson separately as a taster-please note Powerkite session is included as the first part of the IKO day 1 Discovery course so if you choose to do the Powerkite Course and then go on to take the IKO Discovery with BEKS you will be credited for the money already paid and accredited with the tuition completed. We recommend that all students take out their own personal accident insurance to cover kitesurfing which can be done through the BKSA.
