We are the number one provider within Northern Ireland for Kitesurf lessons. Our Head Instructor is IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) certified, holds valid RYA First Aid and Insurance certificates, and has many years of kitesurfing experience. He is also a qualified CSIA Ski Instructor.

Students will follow the IKO approved training Syllabus which cover items such as riding skills, safety, right of way rules, equipment setup and selection.

Located on the Ards Peninsula of County Down, Northern Ireland we are ideally situated to teach kitesurfing. With regular winds, NI Kitesurfing is the perfect choice when considering learning to kitesurf.
