Firstly I’m sorry if you can’t get out of work in June or September as this must be a real tease!!!

A place on the Christian and Karine Kite Clinic to Zaafarana on the 26th June has come available and so is now up for grabs. The Kite Clinic includes all flights, transfers, visas, half board accommodation, centre rates and the week long Kite Clinic – total price is £1015.

By now I’d hope you have heard of Christian and Karine but if not then you can read up about them on the Kitesurfkings website (Sessions Page) or check them out at iksurf mag (online kitesurf mag). I have personally been on one of their Kite Clinics and cannot speak more highly of them as individuals or as instructors. They will not only motivate you but will give you the skills and confidence to go for (and land!) some of those kitesurf tricks you’ve been dreaming about! Get in contact with us through the Kitesurfkings website if you are interested. There’s only one place left for this June Kite Clinic.

Fancy coming on a group kitesurfing trip to Zaafarana in September? It’s not a Kite Clinic with Christian and Karine, it’s an out and out kitesurfers trip for anyone that has, at the very minimum, already completed a beginner kitesurfing course. We aim to kitesurf everday and will all be wishing to learn new kitesurfing styles and get in shape for the harsh conditions the UK winter can bring.

We’re going back to Zaafarana coz we love it, the kitesurfing conditions are perfect and we’ve had wind everyday of each of the KSK trips to Zaf. You can come from the 21st to 28th Sep or 28th Sep to 5th Oct 2010. Get your deposit of £150 now to secure your place. The total cost is just £799! That includes your return flights (inc taxes, meals ect), meet and greet service on arrival in Cairo, return resort transfer (2.5hrs each way), transfer of kit, tourist visa (group size dependent), accommodation, breakfast and dinner, kite storage and rescue, centre rates and coaching tips throughout the week.

Guaranteed good times too! Check out the Zaafarana Student video from our last trip, it’s on the home page and on the Kitesurfkings TV page of the main Kitesurfkings website. Loads of pics from our last trip can also be found on Facebook too, you don’t need an account you can check um out via the Kitesurfkings home page.

Hope you can come kiting with us soon!

Those that were out kitesurfing in Shoreham this weekend… what a bloody great sessions!!!! We ran kiting lessons on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday but sadly the water based lessons were cancelled on Saturday when it started to gust 35 knots and averaged out at 28 knots. Friday was a different world, blue skies and sun shine until sunset, you’ll be able to see some video footage from Friday’s kitesurfing lessons on the Extreme Sports Channel very soon – try to keep you posted!

There was a bit of a kick in the pants in that the wind did calm down in the end on Saturday but by then it was too late for students and so there was only one option…

Umm, kitesurfing!!! How you have been missed!!!! Just like riding a bike though, the faster and higher you go the more fun it is!

Hope to see you for a kite on the south coast some time very soon. If the conditions are right we’ll be teaching but if the tide or winds are not conducive to learning…

Down winder anyone?

Off Shore!

May 11, 2009

Time to chase the off shore winds guys!

We’re hopeful that the wind will swing round to cross shore mid week but, as it is, the forecast is not good.

Hope everyone enjoyed the great wind last week. We had lots of happy students out kiting and many great after lessons sessions our selves.

The El Gouna Kite Clinics we ran in April were a massive success and I’d like to thank everyone that was involved for making it such a great trip.

I’ll get some info about our new spot and our next Kite Clinic dates online later today!! Watch this space…

Just a quickie: if you own a long board and live in Sussex then why not come and join us for a skate? Skating on Brighton sea front today, after seeing our friends down at Brighton Watersports, a super nice dude invited us to hook up for a skate tomorrow night. The offer is open to anyone that owns or can get their hands on a long board.

No Wind - No Worries

No Wind - No Worries


Grab your board or pinch your mates and join us for a skate tomorrow from 7pm. We’re meeting at the flat spot between the West Pier and Palace Pier. Nothing too serious, just hanging out, might even sink a few beers – nice.

How nice, lovely sunshine here on the south coast today but still no wind! The forecast’s not looking any good here in the U.K; we’re wind dancing daily but to no effect.

What better time could there be to get booked on to Christian and Karine’s El Gouna Kite Clinic?

There are still spaces up for grabs on the second week of our Egyptian Kite Clinic which is great news for you – the kiter who wants to have a great time and be able to do more!!

Check out the details: El Gouna Kite Clinic \'09

Chris pre broken ankle

Chris pre broken ankle

Bad news for Chris (above) who has just broken his ankle snowboarding in Bulgaria – savage! Chris had been booked onto both weeks of our Kite Clinic but unless his handstands get a lot better he’s not kiting! Sorry mate, we thought snowboarding was too easy but didn’t consider the dangers!! We’ll hook you up with an ‘extreme’ wheel chair dude!

So, if you’re up wind with no broken bones and want a great time then drop us a line or give us a call and get booked onto the kite session of your dreams!!! Hove, Brighton, Lancing, Worthing, Littlehampton, Eastbourne, Hastings, Sussex, South Coast, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland – where ever you are – your spot will not compare to El Gouna and you have not met instructors like Christian and Karine. Get on it, get booked on and enjoy your time on this planet. Life’s too short, today fine, tomorrow a broken ankle and next week who knows?!

It’s not looking good for our local kiters; South East and London kiters need to start thinking outside the box. The forecast has not got any better! Off shore super light winds – even land kiting is looking unlikely!

On a more positive note Egypt is just a 4hr flight away! Read about our Kite Clinic below or get in contact for beginner sessions…
