Kitesurfing in Troon

Kitesurf Scotland is Scotland’s leading Kitesurfing school and is run by Grant Clayton and his dedicated team of instructors. Kitesurfing harnesses the power of the wind through a large parachute-type kite to propel a surfer across the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard). Unlike surfing, kitesurfing does not require waves, just the wind – so in Scotland, there is a good chance that box is ticked. The Kitesurf Scotland team include one Junior British champion and the other ranked 3rd in the British pro men’s category. A one-day kitesurfing course is available for £130 which includes safety gear and a 5mm wetsuit.
