Rye Watersports has been teaching kitesurfing at Camber Sands since 2003. We are a family run centre offering expert tuition in a wide range of watersports.  We are one of only three kite schools licensed to teach at Camber Sands.  Our permanent senior instructors Nick Pardoe and Tom Watson are both highly experienced and Sam Bull has competed on the circuit after living and learning to kitesurf in Spain as a kid.
Please be aware that due to the nature of kitesurfing times and possibly locations may change; you will be notified 24 hours before your course if they do.
