Kiteboarding in Pembrokeshire

As the marvel that is Kiteboarding was recently featured on BBC's Countryfile with David Ursell, I thought it may be a nice idea to mention that through Activity Wales we can offer this delightful Kiteboarding experience in Pembrokeshire, South West Wales.

Big Blue Kitesurfing welcome visitors to Pembrokeshire all year round, to discover new and exciting coastal experiences upon the fabulous 3 mile stretch of sandy beach, Newgale. Backed by a large pebble bank, a defence against the high tide, and abundance of flat sand and clear waters it is obvious why this beach offers an amazing setting for getting to grips with Kiteboarding, Powerkiting, Wakeboarding, Kitesurfing, Paddleboarding and learning to control a Zap Cat.

As it was Kiteboarding that was presented by BBC's Countryfile, I feel it's only fair to offer a little further insight as to what this experience entails and why all should give it a go in Pembrokeshire.

Kiteboarding requires only light wind behind you and offers a great alternative to Kitesurfing as you don't get wet! Kiteboarding uses similar skills to Kitesurfing, during your experience you will learn the board skills required to cruise safely along the beach, speed control, changing direction, stopping (!) and all important safety awareness and beach use.

Big Blue Kitesurfing are masters of teaching all things wacky and exciting across the beach and cruising the sea. Big Blue are more than happy to welcome complete beginners to Kiteboarding or any of their other experiences I have mentioned They also have the skills, knowledge and professionalism to offer guidance and progression with hardcore advanced techniques such as jumps, power slides, turns and rotations.

The season is really kicking in now for activities such as Kiteboarding, Kitesurfing, Wakeboarding, Power Kiting and Zap Cats and throughout the summer advanced booking is highly recommended.
