What is Powerkiting?

Powerkiting is a great entry sport into other kite sports.

Powerkiting usually takes place in open fields, parks and beaches, where the kite is flown with a bar of handles. Children as young as 5 can take part in powerkiting, but requires clean wind in the early stages of learning.

Equipment

During initial powerkiting lessons all equipment may be provided. Therefore all you will require is a sturdy pair of shoes, sunglasses, sun cream and warm clothing if it is cold.

Campaigns

Coaching Can

Coaching has long been considered to be about the development of skill in a sport. It has been about acquiring, honing and transferring these skills in the pursuit of athletic achievement.
