Kitemaking


Finding a good teacher, someone with years of experience, in whom you can have confidence, and who will teach you at a pace you're comfortable with is invalueable.

My local school is just such a place! I can recommend Kitevibe without hesitation; it's run right here in London by my friend Mark Parker. Based in Richmond Park, Kitevibe offers courses ranging from first steps in 2 line powerkiting, right through to advanced buggying and landboarding; all set in the fabulous surroundings of London's largest park.

Kitevibe offers group courses and 1-2-1 Coaching (if you would like to focus on a specific area of your kiting, boarding or buggying or even have a refresher course).

Power kiting is a definite muscle memory activity. The more the you do it the better you become. Gradually it'll become instinctive, giving you time to concentrate on other exciting things like buggies, landboards and moving forwards with your kite.

There are any number of ways you can enjoy your new found kite skills, moving on from your first static flying lessons to buggying, landboarding, kitesurfing, snowkiting, in-line staking; in fact, you name it, a kite can probably pull it!

Putting all this together and getting the most from the sport is the role of the kite school. One of the first things any good school should teach you are the essential safety precautions all kiters should abide by.

As a novice kiter, you won't go too far wrong if you remember this:

"If you think the wind is too strong, it probably is".

"If you think your kite's too big, it probably is".
