We are based in Kinmel Bay North Wales which is four hours from London, two hours from Birmingham, and one hour from Chester. The kitesurfing lessons take place on a quiet beach which stretches for miles in both directions, and we train in all wind directions. The quiet flat Beach makes it a safe area to learn the kite flying before progressing to the water. Kinmel Bay is a fine, north-facing, sandy beach fronted on the landward side by a narrow promenade and sea wall along its entire length.
Access to the beach is across the promenade from an extensive tarmac car park located on St Asaph Avenue at the rear of the ASDA store. A café is situated on the seaward side of the car park. Kinmel dunes local nature reserve fronts onto the landward side of the promenade. There is free parking here this is the meeting point for your kitesurfing lessons.
We will be teaching with brand new North Rebel, North Dice, North Vegas, and North Neo 2016 Kites. These Kites come recommended by North Kiteboarding for school teaching, and we have 12 of them in sizes 5m, 7m, 9m, 10m, and 12m. These Kites have a huge de-power range, and because of the 5th line they will take off and fly in light winds. this means you will have more time learning no matter what strength the wind is.
