Kitesurfing is an exciting wind sport that’s been around for over 15yrs. Whether you’re just learning to kiteboard or already have the basics and are now looking to progress your freestyle, racing or wave kiting skills the North East coast has some amazing kite spots including Redcar, Druridge Bay, Beadnell and Bamburgh amongst a host of others. Although we don’t provide kiteboard lessons, Boardskillz’ sister company Loco Surfing makes some of the industries most exciting directional or strapless kite boards that have found favour with some of the UK’s top wave kiting riders. Whether you’re looking to buy a used, ex demo Loco kiteboard or simply want to hire one for a weekend or longer Boardskillz can help.

A lot of kiters graduating from twin tips to strapless boards often buy blind or off the back of paid Magazine reviews which never give you the real low down. Even if you don’t buy a Loco we have a range sizes across two shapes to give you an idea of what might work at your current level.

For those looking to travel to Tyne & Wear or indeed onwards to Northumberland that don’t want the hassle of bringing kit can collect our boards locally and hire a suitable kite from KA Adventure Sports up at Beadnell.
