We offer Kite Surfing Lessons in Tramore via Hooked Kite Surfing School in Wexford.
Kitesurfing is is a surface water-sport that uses the wind to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard)
A kitesurfer uses a board with or without foot-straps or bindings, combined with the power of a large controllable kite to propel the rider and the board across the water
So if you want to learn to kitesurf or powerkite on some of the best beaches in the South East of Ireland, our Qualified IKO instructors will help you experience the thrill of flying a large controllable kite, then use it to propel yourself across the water..then into the air if you choose.
All equipment supplied for your kitesurfing lessons, Easy to use water re-launchable, inflatable kites, with latest state-of-the art safety release systems. Waist harnesses and life vests and helmets.
