We started teaching Kitesurfing Lessons and running our online store in April 2014. In July 2016 we were awarded British Kitesports Recognised School status, the highest level a kite school can reach. Founder Christine Johnston has a background in Olympic and Formula windsurf racing, attending the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and winning the Formula World Windsurfing Championships in 2003. Christine finished training as a British Kitesports Association kitesurf instructor in June 2012 and spent her first few seasons as a kitesurf instructor working at Brighton Kitesurf Academy and BN1 Kitesurfing on Lancing Beach in Sussex, Kite Republic in Melbourne, Australia and most recently (winter 2014/2015) at Windchasers in Langebaan, South Africa. This has given Christine a broad range of teaching experience in a variety of conditions. 

Our online store is chock full of power kites, kitesurf kites, kitesurf boards, wake boots, wetsuits, harnessesimpact vests and stand up paddle boards. If you take lessons with us we have an unbeatable offer on your first set of equipment, see below. We know that you can find the best prices on the web for equipment at the click of a button, so we will match the price if you find the same item for sale online elsewhere (conditions apply). 

This video is about Kite Water Relaunch. Kitesurfing Lesson Level 1 Lesson 3rd August 2014. Student: Simon Maher. Instructor: The KiTE, SURF & SUP Co. Christine Johnston. Equipment: Flexifoil Shiva 9.0m.


Learn how to kitesurf in three simple steps! In LEVEL 1 learn about the kite and how to fly it. In LEVEL 2 you will learn how to control the kite and how to generate power with the kite, to water re launch the kite, how to move yourself through the water using the kite (body drag). In LEVEL 3 you will begin by learning how to control the kite and put the board onto your feet in the water, how to maintain your start position with the board on your feet and finally how to do your first board starts by diving the kite to generate enough power to pull you up onto the board.  In a PROGRESSION lesson you might want to learn how to stay up riding on the board for longer, how to maintain an edge, how to ride amongst other kiters and how to change direction.
