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.

A range of fun new activities everybody can enjoy. Of course, Ramsgate’s packed with natural beauty, incredible history and spectacular views, but did you know it also offers a cycling route that circles an entire island, cliff-topping walking trails, geocaching challenges, sweeping golf courses, boat rides, a canoe trail and more? If not, it might be time hop aboard with Active Ramsgate!

“Ramsgate’s at the Land’s End of the south-east; the getaway place with great scenery and the great outdoors. (And it’s just down the line from London.)”
Nicholas Crane, Presenter of the BBC Coast series
Ramsgate is the first destination to be awarded Explore Kent’s ‘We love walkers and cyclists’ status in recognition of its facilities, routes and warm welcome for active leisure visitors!

Tailor-make your own active itinerary drawing on Active Ramsgate’s Active8 to give you some ideas!

With some of the most beautiful scenery on the south coast, stepping out has never been so in.

A range of cycling, golf and boating activities designed for all ages and abilities.

Canoeing is a great way to see Ramsgate from a different perspective, to immerse yourself in nature, test yourself against the elements and keep fit all at the same time.

You can’t visit Ramsgate without coming into contact with the sea. There’s a whole raft (sorry!) of ways to get active in the water.

The Ramsgate coast is an internationally important destination for wetland birds, making birdwatching a wonderful experience here all year round.

The most fun you’ve ever had with a bat and ball!

Get involved in these high tech treasure hunts using your smart phone and see if you can find the Active Ramsgate geocache, you could be in with a chance of winning a micro travel bug!

This really is an ideal time to escape to Ramsgate for the weekend.
