Kitefoiling Coaching Camps
Shoreham-by-sea, United Kingdom 12th - 16th June 2021
Shoreham-by-sea. The UK is blessed with some of the best kitesurfing beaches in the world. Shoreham is one of them. It is also our local beach so why wouldn’t we run a camp from here?
- Progression’s headquarters (our house) is based right by Shoreham Beach and will be the hub for all the coaching meetings and video analysis before we head down to the water to get some training in.
- The surrounding local geography can often result in some epic sea breezes throughout the summer. This gives us prime foiling conditions that will often see us kiting until sundown. Our sunset sessions are a unique speciality here in the summer.
- Shoreham beach also offers us nice coaching opportunities to explore the coastline with upwind and downwind sessions, although dependent on ability level and weather conditions.
- The eclectic Brighton culture is a short distance away to explore and the lovely town of Shoreham gives us many nice and varied restaurants to chose from throughout the week.
- We also have a variety of other kiting spots within an hour or so drive that covers us in most wind directions.
- Unique filming and photography opportunities to maximise your kite foiling development.
- Our camps are kept small for a reason. We want to ensure you get as much personalised coaching experience as possible, tailored to your goals. It is for this reason that we limit the places to this camp to 8 people with 2 coaches.
