Our kite school is where Aaron Hadlow won one of his first competitions so you’re in good company if you learn with us!  But even better than that is the way we teach which is on a two pupils to one instructor basis.  No waiting around for your turn to use the kite.   Most kitesurf schools give group lessons on a ratio of 4 pupils to one instructor.  Tom Watson and Sam Bull (part of the family team who own RWS here is Sussex) head up the kite school.  Both Tom and Sam have been kitesurfing and teaching for many years With this and our brand new 2017 super-safe equipment you’re just a lesson away from becoming a kitesurfer! … and we’re only one hour from South London on the Kent and Sussex coast!
