Top Tips
 
We're going to be including a helpful tip in every future newsletter. The second one, is one we always get asked about and is a useful addition to your skill set for launching and landing. Please note that self launching and landing should never be used in preference to assisted launching and landing, assisted launching and landing is much safer. 
 
Tip 2. Self Launch and Landing From a Post

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced
Equipment Required: An extra normal (at least 65cm) length leash 

This is an intermediate level skill to self launch and land your kite from a fixed point. The principal of it is much like when you swapped on to a kite from your instructor in your kite lesson. The kite is at the side of the window depowered, you swap on to the chicken loop, that is clipped on to the second leash, gently pilot the kite around the side of the window to 2 O'Clock or 10 O' Clock (depending which side the water is to you) and away you go. Full details below. 

Use a fixed point, such as post, and a second leash with a leash hook. Set your kite up in the usual way, lying your lines out downwind. Wrap your second leash around the post, so that it holds firm and you have access to the hook. Now pick up your bar and walk it around to the post and second leash, leaving the kite on the side of the window nearest the water, flat on the beach, secured with a weight. Hook the second leash on to your chicken loop, this will take the strain of the kite via the centre lines later when you have sat the kite up at the side of the window. Walk around to your kite and sit the kite up at the side of the window at either 3 O' Clock or 9 O' Clock, the side nearest the water. Go back to the chicken loop and swap on to your kite by leashing on in the normal way to the safety leash ring first. Then put the chicken loop on to your harness hook, leave the kite resting on the beach at the side of the wind window, then remove the second leash clip from the chicken loop, meaning that you now have full control of the kite (before the second leash clip was taking the strain). Slowly pilot the kite up off the beach from 3 O' Clock to 2 O' Clock or on the other side 9 O' Clock to 10 O' Clock. Walk in to the water flying your kite at the edge of the wind window in the usual way. 

Reverse the procedure to land. Bring kite side of window 3 O' Clock or 10 O' Clock, but don't land it yet. Line yourself up with the second leash, clip second leash on to chicken loop and then land kite to the beach slowly and unhook yourself from the chicken loop. The second leash takes the tension of the kite through the centre lines. Walk around and land your kite to beach.

We believe this self launch and landing technique is reliable and safe compared with other methods that do not use a fixed point. Please note it is ALWAYS preferable to have another kiter launch and land you because it is safer. This is however a useful skill to know if you do ever decide to kite on your own, or you get left last at the beach and everyone has gone. 

Instructors Christine or Giorgio could show you this skill in a half hour 1:1 lesson for £30.00. Contact us to book.

After the wintery conditions of last week it's finally starting to feel a little milder, and there are some comparatively warm south west winds on their way for the beginning of next week. It's time to think about getting kitesurfing again!
Top Tips
 
We're going to be including a helpful tip in every future newsletter. The first one is one we learnt relatively recently. 
 
Tip 1. Taking Care of Your Kitesurfing Kite

So you've splashed your cash after your lessons on the latest greatest kitesurfing kite, probably something like an Ozone Catalyst V1 or a Peter Lynn Escape V6. I bet you think it would be a great idea to rinse your new pride and joy in fresh water after every session. Beware! You should only rinse your kite in fresh water if you have got the time and space to dry it afterwards until it is bone dry. Never roll a damp or wet kite back up that has been rinsed in fresh water and put it away in it's kite bag. The reason is that mould will grow on your kite if you leave it damp with fresh water. However, feel free to roll your kite back up and put it away damp with salt water on it, this will not cause mould to grow. If you have the time after your session allow it to dry as much as you can, but the main thing after a session is to make sure it is clear of sand and debris, or shingle before you put it away, these will cause wear and tear on your kite, but don't be afraid to roll it up damp with salt water on it, no harm will come to it. 
Fifth Year of Teaching at Worthing!
 
We'll be teaching for the fifth year in a row at East Worthing, having just been awarded the concession license to teach there again by Worthing Council. We were asked to put a tender in for our spot, so it made for a nerve wracking few days of waiting for the response!

Just the kite is £30.00/hour. Just the board £10.00/hour. Just the wetsuit, harness, helmet, boots, float coat £10.00/hour. Conditions apply. 

Peter Lynn Kitesurf Trainer Kite

It's a great idea to get yourself a trainer kite before or during the process of having kitesurfing lessons. At least 85% of learning to kitesurf is about your ability to fly and control a kite well, so the more time you spend flying a kite with a similar bar control system, such as the Peter Lynn Kitesurf Trainer, the better!

Access Adventures Adaptive Kite Camp, Keros, Greece 16 - 23rd August 2017

I was very privileged to be invited to assist on the Access Adventures Adaptive Kite Camp last week. There were seven participants, Lou, Allison, Ben, Robbert, Andy, Nev and Zuzana, four volunteers, myself, Steve, John and Kate, and three Access Adventures staff, Clare, Jane and Tim, on the trip. Surf Club Keros have experience teaching adaptive kitesurfing and the facilities and equipment and instructors are ready and able to meet this challenge. 

Over the seven day camp, on four days we had enough wind to teach kitesurfing, so pretty good stats and that enabled some impressive progression by the participants, who all reached body dragging at least in their journeys to become kitesurfers. 

Participants go through the usual stages of learning to kitesurf, Level 1 - flying a power kite on the beach, Level 2 - adapted learning to fly the kitesurf kite sat on an inflatable sofa in the water, followed by body dragging in the usual way, perhaps with additional personal buoyancy to help with body position in the water, Level 3 - kitesurfing on the board, using an adapted kitesurf board, with a frame to sit in, the chicken loop attaches to the front of the frame and then the kite is steered in the usual way. 

Surf Club Keros and the accommodation, which was large glamping style tents, with a private shower room and loo, and the food, fantastic spread of freshly prepared buffet style breakfast and dinner, and salads and sandwiches at the beach, is highly recommended. The best time to travel there for wind is July and August. The school has an extensive selection of RRD kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP equipment and trained friendly instructors for all sports. 

What the participants go through on a daily basis to live with their injuries is both amazing and humbling. I learnt so much about the participants and participating in adaptive sports over the course of this week and I will never forget it. 

Some photos of the week are below.

The KiTE, SURF & SUP Co. Safety Tips

Kitesurfing is potentially a dangerous sport. Follow our safety tips to keep yourself and others around you safe whilst learning and progressing at kitesurfing:

1. Take a course of lessons to learn kitesurfing at a BKSA recognised kite school. Ask your instructor for advice on what equipment will be suitable for you to purchase to learn and progress on. 

BKSA Kite Schools in the Brighton and Worthing area are, from West to East:

Learn to Kitesurf, Goring

The KiTE, SURF & SUP Co. School, Worthing

Brighton Kitesurf and SUP Academy, Lancing

BN1 Kitesurfing, Lancing

 British Kitesports Kite School Brighton to Worthing

British Kitesports Kite School Brighton to Worthing

2. Wear a Helmet

3. Only kite in side shore, cross on shore or on shore winds (dead onshore being the least preferable as you will end up back on the beach very quickly) and be careful about the strength of wind that you are going kitesurfing in. When you have only just completed your kitesurfing course you are a bit like a 'P' plate driver who has just passed their driving test, you need to get some hours and practice under your belt before attempting to go kitesurfing in stronger winds. Stick to light to medium winds until you feel more confident, 12 - 20 knots is perfect. 

4. Use a kite size that is suitable for your weight and the wind strength. This is very important. It is dangerous to launch a kite that is too big for the wind conditions and you could seriously injure yourself if you do that. Look at real time readings at live weather stations such as Windguru Lancing Sailing Club and Worthing Pier Observatory

Forecasts are helpful, but you should always establish what strength the wind is actually blowing before going out. Speak to other kitesurfers at the beach and check what size kites they are on. Our favourite forecast websites are: Windguru Worthing and Met Office Worthing (Beach)

5. Launch your kite at the edge of the wind window and always choose to launch the kite on the water side of the wind window. If you don't know what this means, take some lessons, you need to be clear on this!

6. Do not launch your kite between wooden groynes or rock groynes, or close to any down wind object. You should be two kite lines length away from any down wind object. The reason for this is down wind objects are what are going to cause you serious injury if you lose control of your kite during the launch and get pulled down wind. The more distance you have down wind if your kite launch does go wrong, before hitting a solid object, the more chance you have of getting your hand on to the safety system and releasing it before getting dragged in to a solid object and getting injured. 

7. Check that your chicken loop safety release works before every session. Release it and then re load it before each session. Also generally keep an eye on your kite and kite lines for signs of wear and tear. Replace worn kites lines or have repaired worn or damaged areas on your kite. 

8. Kite in the window 3 hours before to 3 hours after low tide. This applies to most south coast beaches such as Shoreham, Lancing and East Worthing. 

Here is a helpful Worthing Beach tide timetable

9. Kite at a beach where there are other kitesurfers kiting. Also set up next to the other kite surfers that are kiting, so that there are more people around to help you launch and then land your kite. There really is safety in numbers, especially for launching and landing, in kitesurfing. 

10. Learn your right of way rules. And generally give other kite surfers plenty of space on the water, that means leave lots of space down wind of you to the next kite.  If you are upwind of another kite think 'Could my kite strike that kite or person below me?' and if so move and create space downwind of you, likewise stay out of the 'strike zone' when you are downwind of another persons kite, if their kite could hit you if they crashed it then you are too close. Crossed kite lines caused by kite crashes are dangerous and not fun. Here are the essential rules:

Right hand forward (Starboard tack) has right of way over left hand forward (Port tack)

Upwind board gives way to downwind board (on the same tack)

Over taking board keeps clear of the board they are over taking (on the same tack)

A kitesurfer recovering in the water (i.e. not travelling on their board) has right of way over a kitesurfer travelling along on their board. 

Avoid a collision at all costs!

Ozone UK Kite Schools – The Kite, Surf & SUP Co.

SCHOOLS

POSTED ON MARCH 9, 2017 BY TOM BEATON.

Full article original HERE
 

09 Mar

Christine is a former World Champion Formula windsurf racer and Olympian who turned to kitesurfing, and then kitesurf teaching. She has been kiting for 10 years and an instructor since 2012. She has amassed hundreds of hours of teaching since then. The Kite, Surf & SUP Co was set up after returning from travelling and teaching abroad. They are based in Hove and teach in Worthing, East Sussex, where Christine is also an active part of the local Lancing Kitesurf Club – acting as their race director, using her race experience from the windsurfing days.

The lessons use up to date Ozone kites and are limited to small groups of 3 students per instructor in the water. This ensures great quality lessons where the pupils have the best chance of advancing to become independent kitesurfers. 

Q & A
 

How did you get into kitesurfing?

I was formerly a windsurfer (that’s a bit of understatement, I used to represent Great Britain at windsurfing, attended the 2000 Olympics and was World Champion in 2003) and I live in Brighton and about 10-11 years ago I started to see people kitesurfing and I just thought it looked really cool. Also I figured since the kite was above your head then jumping must be pretty epic and relatively easy to achieve :-). Then my gran passed away and she left me some money and I spent some of it on taking a course of 10 hours of 1:1 kitesurfing lessons, then I started teaching my friends repeating the instructions that instructor had given me, then I decided to train to be a British Kitesports kitesurf instructor and I haven’t look back. I absolutely love it!

What are your plans for 2017?

More of the same really. We’re hoping to have another busy season like last season, it runs from March to October. I’m always thinking about how we could do things differently to make things better. For example I brought the idea of attaching radios to helmets back from South Africa, and this really makes a huge difference to teaching people to kitesurfing, I saw it myself in South Africa when I first started using them to teach, it probably improves the efficiency and speed of learning by 30-40% and it’s safer and more effective than not having radio communication. 

I’m going down to Poole Harbour in April to revalidate my British Kitesports Senior instructor certificate. 

We’re supporting the Armada Youth Tour at Lancing with instruction for 12-18 year olds at the end of May. 

What do you like about Ozone?

Their kites! They just fly really well and they are exceptionally well made and the back up from Maxtrack is second to none. The different models have different characteristics, a few are suitable to teach on, but the Catalyst V1 is the first choice to teach on cause it’s so easy to water relaunch, it’s predictable and quite slow in flight and it has a thick leading edge, so you don’t have to give it too much pressure to get the kite stiff (therefore if the student happens to crash it, it is less likely to blow the bladder). I also like to teach on the Enduro and the Reo, depending on the student. The Reo is quite fast, but this can be good for a student with power kite flying experience or who picks the skills up quickly because they see how their input on the bar almost immediately translates in to the direction the kite is steering, basically it’s very responsive, you steer left it goes left right away, this has it’s downside if they pull too hard too long on one side of the bar though, with a small size kite it’s easy to send it in to a kite loop if you aren’t careful!

What sets you apart from other kite schools?  

We’re always pushing to be the best we can be. We have all the right boxes ticked like being a British Kitesports Accredited School, holding full third party liability and indemnity insurance, operating at our location with the permission of Worthing Council, but further than that we’re still excited to be teaching kitesurfing, we’re genuinely passionate about people getting in to this fantastic sport and becoming regular participants, plus you won’t find any frustrated kitesurfers instructing for us i.e. they’d rather be riding than teaching, all our instructors genuinely love teaching kitesurfing!

Ozone Catalyst V1 - The Art of Progress

http://ozonekites.com/products/water-kites/catalyst-v1/ Catalyst V1 - The Art of Progress 

The Catalyst V1 is designed for entry level and intermediate riders – it’s a confidence inspiring, fun and easy kite to ride that will make your progression in the sport fast, safe and enjoyable.

With accessible “sheet in and go” power delivery it is easy to get up on the board and ride. An excellent wind range lets you ride comfortably in variable or gusty conditions, refined profiles help you to ride upwind, enabling you to spend more time improving your skills! The Catalyst V1 will bring a smile to your face, the predictable power and lift makes your first jumps a breeze with easy timing and smooth landings.

We took a completely new approach towards this design to create a fun filled kite for new comers to progress to becoming solid intermediate riders. The Catalyst V1 has a unique Leading Edge arc and sweep shape, combined with a simple pulley-less bridle offering you freedom and flexibility on the water.

If you manage to drop your kite in the water the re-launch of the Catalyst V1 is incredibly simple and intuitive due to the unique shape of the leading edge. By turning the bar or using the Re-launch Balls on the leader lines, the kite will easily roll over into the re-launch position ready to take off from the water.

The Catalyst V1 Release System features our proven Front Line Flag Out release, the same release system on our entire water kite range. When the Chickenloop is released the kite will flag out to one front line, immediately stopping all power delivery from the kite.

As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory using the highest quality materials. The Catalyst V1 is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisp feel and a strong kite.

Low tide is 1.20pm on the Saturday and 2.40pm on the Sunday, but it is a very high low tide, which means it should be suitable to kite not too far either side of low tide. We will be there setting up from noon on Saturday with kites available from 12.30pm and on Sunday we will be there from 10.00am. 

The wind forecast for Worthing is looking good:

The exact address and location of the event is here: 
Beach and green opposite Alinora Avenue,
Goring,
Worthing,
West Sussex,
BN12 4NB


We look forward to seeing you there!

 

N.B. Rider level required to demo' equipment will be at least intermediate, so staying upwind and turning, and if it's very windy on the Saturday we reserve the option to only demo boards or to postpone the event until Sunday. If you are unsure of when to come down Sunday is looking like more moderate conditions to try all the equipment.
