The Kitesurf Centre was created by two highly experienced BKSA senior instructors to provide the finest level of kite surfing tuition in the South East of England, run from a centre on the beach at Camber Sands, East Sussex, near Rye. Our location not only offers superior wind conditions to any location on the South or East coast but also the unique position of having an excellent selection of the latest equipment right at your fingertips.
At The Kitesurf Centre, we pride ourselves in having a selection of the most experienced and highly regarded instructors in the UK. All are BKSA, first aid and powerboat trained. Our instructors are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and able to teach in a wide range of languages.
Our centre and shop are located on Camber Sands beach, around 1 hour from south London. It’s no secret that Camber Sands is the finest beach for kite surfing and water sports in the Southeast with 4 miles of open sand and relatively flat sea conditions. We are fortunate enough to have our new centre just behind the beach, offering the ideal location for a kitesurf school. The centre offers a relaxed comfortable atmosphere concealed from the often-ideal windy elements.
Being located on a peninsular offers us beaches facing in two directions meaning we can use almost any wind direction for lessons and the wind still blows onshore. Greatstone near New Romney is a 10-mile stretch of sand in a beautiful rural location. The huge tidal range offers ideal learning conditions with super flat shallow water.
Though our name may suggest we are simply a kitesurfing school, we teach a wide variety of sports suitable for almost any wind condition, fitness level or budget. In each one of our lessons, we provide all of the necessary equipment. The centre offers equipment hire in all the sports & has a large range of new & used equipment available to purchase from the shop.

Kite landboarding or kite mountain boarding brings together the excitement of flying a kite with the thrill of riding an off-road board; taking aspects from kitesurfing, snowboarding and skateboarding, it can be performed either on a sandy beach or inland in a field or park.
This sport has a very quick progression curve and you'll be surprised how far you are riding along by the end of this landboarding course. Learning to kite buggy is actually a lot easier than you would imagine. Unlike kite landboarding where balance is essential, kite buggying is performed seated using your legs for steering and arms to control and fly the kite.
If you're looking for a fun activity for the day, no matter your age or ability, kitebuggying is a great option! This course is aimed at beginners, first starting with a short theory session in our centre's classroom which covers wind and weather, site assessment, equipment, safety, the wind window and riding directions
