Tips to pumping up your kite…
‘If you are serious about kitesurfing safely and want to learn the right way from someone who actually cares about your wellbeing and enjoyment – book a lesson with SkyHighKitesurfing. After a scary incident due to poor instruction previously from another local…. the difference was outstanding from the start. I am now enjoying going out on my own safely with confidence. Make sure you get recommendations before you pay for lessons, even if the business looks professional… it could cost you painfully… physically and financially (as I found out).’ A Google User
‘I am a kite surfing beginner who was really struggling to get up and ride my unnatural side. In one lesson I am now riding sweet as on my unnatural side. I got great tips on kite launch, kite control, kite pack up. The lesson was well structured and professional. Thanks Jamie’ Steve Z
