A Professional BKSA Recognised Kitesports School - Providing Powerkiting, Kitesurfing, Kitelandboarding and Kitebuggying lessons - Brought to you by two of the UK's top kiteboarders. Based in Westward Ho! North Devon - South West UK.
Power kiting is one of the fastest growing family activities around. Using a small parachute type kite to harness the wind, you can use the kite to perform loops and spins through the sky, or even put up a big kite and use it to pull you along.
Kite surfing has been the fastest growing watersport for the past 7 years, and there is a reason why! Using the power of the wind to propel yourself across the surface of the water, carving through the waves and jumping into the sky is what draws people again and again to the beach.
The most popular land based kite sports are Jumping, Buggying and Land Boarding. All of these sports can be enjoyed in the lightest of winds, making them a great light wind (and dry) alternative to kitesurfing.
514Elemental provide a variety of top quality lessons for Kitesurfing, Powerkiting, Kitebuggying and Kite Landboarding. A family day out Powerkiting or a adrenaline packed Freestyle coaching session we do it all. Suiting groups or even treat yourself to a private lesson, tailored to suit you. All our courses are held on the blue flag beach of Westward Ho! situated in North Devon - South West UK.
Here at 514Elemental, we believe in giving our customers the ultimate kite experience. With the team having over 34 years of kite sport experience between them, you can be sure youâll be receiving the highest quality of knowledge on the best equipment the industry has to offer.
We are not only a BKSA recognised school, the team hold the highest level qualifications as BKSA (British Kite Sports Association) instructors and coaches. Robin and Sukie have both spent may years on the freestyle competition circuits, so dont fear, knowledge is coming from some of the UK's best riders.
One thing we donât offer here at 514Elemental is a second rate kitesurfing or land kiting lesson. 514Elemental is the premier kite sports centre for the enthusiastic participant.

"AMAZING" - "Took the one day Kite Surfing course with these guys and absolutely loved it! My only regret was not booking a 2 or 3 day course. They were very thorough, had a lot of patience and were very encouraging. What I loved most about these guys is that they absolutely love what they do and teach from that passion. Would highly recommend them!"
1 Day Kitesurf Course
"Had a great day - well actually a long afternoon from 1pm to 6:30pm. I had booked on 3 previous occasions, but each time was cancelled the day before because of poor wind or on one occasion lightening. I was wondering if it was going to happen. But it was worth the wait. 2 hours learning the basics on land, then after a break, another 2 hours in the sea with a big kite. In one day, you don't get onto the boards, but I did really feel in control and was being dragged through the waves where I wanted to go by the end of the day.
Gear was all top quality, and worked in pairs, watching was almost as useful as having a go. Definitely want to have more lessons. The instructors were very patient and gave clear instructions as all times. Highly recommended."
1 Day Kitesurfing Lesson
"We had a great day with Robin and Craig kite buggying and kite boarding. We were lucky to have a lovely sunny day and good wind. It was really good fun and a great work-out too. Thanks guys."
Land Based Kite Sports
"Sukie has been motivating and inspiring my sisters and I for several years.Her enthusiasm is utterly contagious, and in her presence I am often inspired to throw tricks that I wouldnât otherwise have tried. Sukie is great at making sure you are reaching your full potential on the water, always thinking of the next things you should be trying.
Snuggs is excellent at explaining tricks, he has a great ability to break things down. I particularly remember the afternoon he spent teaching me how to kite loop in strong winds, despite the slightly hectic conditions he gave me the confidence to go for it, whilst still feeling safe.
Snuggs and Sukie together are the dream team. Spending time with them on the Kiteboard Tour Asia last year was a pleasure, between them, they have so much wisdom to share â itâs insane!!."
