Learn Windsurfing Brighton - Rya Level 1 - Water Experiences


Category: Water Experiences
Description: Windsurfing Experience Days: This Brighton and Hove Windsurfing Course is a perfect introduction to the exhilarating sport of Windsurfing, taught in the sheltered and beginner-friendly Hove Lagoon. Windsurfing is a wonderful sport that uses the power of wind to propel yourself and your board across the water, building on turning skills and control until you are proficient enough to eventually start getting some air! This Brighton course, run over two days, will teach you the basic but very necessary skills you need to earn your RYA Level 1 windsurfing qualification. This is an ideal beginner's course, but will also be useful to those with limited experience. All you need for this one is a desire to learn and a good attitude, because this is not the easiest of the water sports to pick up. As challenging as it is, it is equally rewarding, and that feeling of mastery when you get your first few good runs is pretty warm and fuzzy! The RYA Level 1 certificate shows that you are competent enough to hire equipment at RYA centres worldwide and get out there with supervision. The 2 day Brighton and Hove Windsurfing course covers many of the basic windsurfing techniques that you need to progress safely with the sport. You will have a full introduction to the board and rig and will simulate all the balancing and rig handling techniques while on dry land. You will also be learning how to control upwind & downwind windsurfing, safety & self rescue techniques. There will also be plenty of on-water practicing under the watchful eye of your instructor. By the end of the course you will be able to competently sail an area and be ready to move your skills on even further. Logbook and handbooks are included in the cost of the course and given upon completion of the R. Y. A. certificate.

Kitesurfing Lesson - 2 Day Course - Water Experiences

Kitesurfing Lesson - 2 Day Course - Water Experiences


Category: Water Experiences
Description: Kite Surfing Experience Days: A 2 day Kitesurfing course is, quite frankly, an absolutely perfect introduction to the sport that we at Experience Days consider to be the most exciting, most extreme and most innovative watersports out there. Kiteboarding - or kitesurfing - is the happy result of the evolution of various other extreme water sports. It combines elements of surfing, windsurfing, wake boarding and paragliding. The huge and powerful kites, and the exceptionally lightweight boards mean that dedicated kite surfers can achieve some really exceptional feats (pier jumping to name one!), and new technologies and equipment developments give kite boarders higher performance opportunities than many of the longer-established watersports. Over the two day kitesurfing lesson you will practice the basic but essential kitesurfing skills - and vital safety practices - that you should know if you want to practise riding solo safely. Luckily for all potential boarders, these skills are relatively easy to get the hang of, and at the conclusion of the 2 day course most students will achieve BKSA Level 1 certificate, with some talented folks even managing to get to Level 2! Day one is all about getting to know the equipment and learning how to fly a kitesurf kite (which is 90% of what kitesurfing is about), you will also learn about important safety procedures and you should finish the day body-dragging which is huge fun but expect to get a mouth full of water! Day two is all about trying to get up on the board and moving and you may start to learn plenty more such as rules of the road and the holy grail of learning to kitesurf which is riding up wind.

Kitesurfing 2 Day Course Camber Sands - Water Experiences


Category: Water Experiences
Description: Kite Surfing Experience Days: Kite surfing is a cross between wakeboarding, snowboarding, surfing, windsurfing and powerkiting, and there's nothing to compare when it comes to pure adrenaline sport. The amazing power generated by the kites offers the kitesurfer an all-encompassing thrill like no other sport in the world. Nothing can beat the incredible high you get from cruising along smooth water, riding huge waves or sailing through the air kitesurfing gives you all this and more. With the introduction of modern equipment and an approach to learning developed by the International Kitesurfing Organisation ( IKO), learning to Kitesurf has never been easier. Day 1 is your introduction to the sport, a background theory of kite surfing, the kit and the environment. You will also have a hands-on session with a power kite, exploring the kite's abilities and performance, before heading into the water yourself! You will experience 'bodydragging' (being pulled by the kite) and all the thrills that accompany this. Day 2 is totally water-based, and you will be surprised at just how far you come in a short space of time - it is not unlikely that you will be a fully self-sufficient kiteboarder by the end, perhaps even reaching IKO Level 2! So what are you waiting for - this is the best course available for beginners, so book now and prepare to be amazed. Day 1 is all about getting to know the equipment and learning how to fly a kitesurf kite (which is 90% of what kitesurfing is about). Once you are familiar with the basics, it's on to flying some Power Kites and learning about the wind window and other important safety procedures. You will finish the day by body-dragging (being pulled by the wind) which is huge fun - expect to get a mouthful of water as you master this essential art! After a quick recap, Day 2 is all about trying to get up on the board and moving yourself around with confidence. You will learn plenty more rules of the road and, of course, the holy grail of learning to kitesurf - riding up wind. This two day course will give you a solid introduction to the sport, and if you have a grounding in board sports you may achieve IKO Level 2 certification. This means that you will be allowed to kitesurf and hire kiteboarding equipment all over the world - surely a must for any kiteboarding enthusiast! Whatever your goals, this is a great 2 day course where you will learn loads and unquestionably have a bucket load of fun!
