Kitesurfing Coaching Clinics

Welcome to Ryan's Coaching Sessions


         Short kiteboarding coaching camps to help you reach the next level whether you are looking to improve your freestyle or your wave riding.


         Each session is 3 hours long and there are 2 sessions per day. You can join in both if you like.


Numder of spaces :

         5 spaces are available per session ensuring a strong element of individual attention without overwhelming amounts of information. 


          The Irish Short Burst Tour runs all year round. Have a look at the list of locations and dates. I hope you can find one that suits you.

Teaching Technique :

           We use a mixture of hands on beach & water work .Weather permitting video footage shot will be shot in the water and out. These can be analyzed and worked on at a later date. There is a world of tricks and skills that are within everyone's grasp with just a little bit of coaching.
