We started teaching Kitesurfing Lessons Near Brighton 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 the 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.
