Live the dream of rolling around on sand powered by a kite on the famous Camber Sands Beach in East Sussex, and get to grips with an exciting buggy-based bit of brilliance with this 2 hour 30 minute Kite Buggy Experience. With wide, flat areas of sand and hefty doses of scenery just an hour south of London, there are few better places to try your hand at power-kite flying (and bombing down straights in a buggy) than Camber Sands Beach. The sport might have been invented in China in the 13th century, but all we know is its been in the UK for nearly 200 years and there’s never been a better time to give it a go. No previous experience is needed, as your expert instructors will take you through all of the necessary safety and theory before you get your hands on your huge kite. An hour of practise later and it’ll be time to take a seat in your buggy for a flying (not literally) time zipping up and down the sands. Get good enough and you’ll even get to test your skills against a slalom – or you can just stick with enjoying the back-and-forth kite-buggying ride!

On arrival at The Kitesurf Centre in Camber you’ll be greeted by a friendly member of staff while you gather together with your fellow students for the day. From there you’ll be given a brief chat on safety, and kite flying and kite-buggying theory, before heading down to the beach to learn how to set up and fly the kite yourself. After an hour or so of kite flying you’ll be shown how to match that skill with buggy steering, and from there you’ll have the rest of the session to practise and improve your brand-new kite-buggying skills.
