Once you’ve mastered your kite control, you’ll be on a board and riding. By choosing the right kite size for the conditions and your ability, you’ll have just the right amount of power and can go as fast or as slow as feels right for you.

If you already mountain board, then you should definitely give it a go: no hill walking, and you’ll get much more air!

Landboarding is also a great way of honing old skills, or learning new ones for kitesurfing - and you can get out in much lighter winds! This course is designed to take you from zero to hero! There are no prerequisites but any background in kite flying, windsurfing or sailing will help you progress quicker.

As balance and board skills are also a factor a background in any board sports is a great help. During the lesson you will safely learn all the basic kite skills and knowledge required to take up landboarding. This includes: Kite set-up and pack-down, emergency kite release and recovery, self launching and landing, the effects of upwind and down wind obstacles and piloting a kite in the power zone and at the edge of the wind window. Once you have mastered the kite skills, you will then have your first ride on a landboard, and if you pick it up quickly, grasp the basics of learning to turn and stop.
   
Benefits: Experience the sensation of gliding across the sand on a kite landboard powered by nothing but the wind, coupled with the excitement of learning a new sport and the ambience of Cornwall's sandy beaches, crystal clear seas and golden sunset.
