All our lessons are available as either a group course or a private course.

All our staff are highly certified BKSA instructors. We feel your safety and the quality of your lessons depend on this. Robin and the team have over 40 years Kite experience collectively. Robin holds BKSA National Coach certification also, in the disciplines of Freestyle, Wave and Foiling.

Over the years he's held championship titles, had multiple podium finishes and has coached many of todays championship leaders as well as the Team GB Olympic Squad.

MODERN EQUIPMENT / GOOD CONDITIONS


At Flow Boardsports, previously Paracademy, we use a selection of modern equipment for all of your kitesurfing lessons. So don’t fear, its all safe and the most efficient equipment you could possibly be learning on.

There’s nothing worse than trying to fly a kite in no wind right? We all did that as kids. We book all our lessons in advance and confirm weather suitability the night before to avoid unnecessary travel. Good conditions will maximise your learning.

SAFE BEACH / STOKED STAFF


Portland Harbour is an incredibly safe beach for kitesurfing, in the right conditions. Boasting flat water and shallow waters which make it safe for you to hit the water and enjoy Kitesurfing!

The Flow Boardsports team are so stoked with Kitesurfing that they have no worries about passing some of this on to you! The team loves every aspect of Kitesports and can’t wait to get you out enjoying the sport like we do!
