FREE Kitesurfing Taster
Active Ramsgate is offering FREE 1 hour kitesurfing taster sessions for adults and children 11+ over the weekend of the 18/19th August as part of the 2018 National Freestyle Kitesurfing Championships taking place on Ramsgate Main Sands.
The taster sessions will be run by qualified instructors from Ramsgate's local kite school Kite Pirates and the British Kitesports Association (BKSA). The sessions are land-based (not in the water) and you will learn how to rig a kite, get it into the air and manoeuvre it.
Pre-book your time slot online and arrive 10 minutes before the start time of your session on Ramsgate Main Sands just along the beach from Wetherspoon's Royal Victoria Pavilion - look out for the Kite Pirates flag.
Please bring your ticket with you.
