Location and Conditions
Kefalonia is a well-kept secret, an island off the South-West coast of mainland Greece. Well known for its mountain range, perfect temperatures and consistent thermal wind conditions. Over summer temperatures range from 20-30+ degrees, so you can say goodbye to your wetsuit and hello to boardie’s and bikinis. This allows for freedom whilst learning or improving with Kitesurfing, even though we love it here in Devon, we cant wait to see the sun..
We are so lucky to have a such safe sandy beach and sailing area to ourselves, with cross shore reliable winds in an incredible sailing area –metres from the Hotel down a gently sloping direct access path to the beach, bar and our pontoon. Our beach club opens its shack doors at 10 am and carries on through until the early evening to make the most of the best wind.

Water Sports | All In
In the morning whilst there’s light winds and calm seas it’s ideal for beginners in our stable dinghies, learning to windsurf and checking out our free tuition clinics. Grab a kayak, stand up paddle board or go for a swim. Lounge by the pool with a book, hang out at the beach bar or have a game of table tennis or beach volley.
The afternoon’s fresh cross shore winds are perfect for performance sailing on catamarans, fast trapeze dinghies and short board windsurfers. The perfect breeze for mid-size kites and improving techniques, also to see a Hydrofoil in action.
Husband and wife team, Rich and Sarah, have taught kitesurfing for over a decade. In fact, it’s how they met – on their instructors’ course with the British Kitesports Association (BKSA), the appointed National Governing Body for kitesurfing and other kitesports in the UK.
Since then they have taught in the UK, Kenya, South Africa, Cape Verde and Brazil. They have also kitesurfed in Europe, Australia, Morocco, Egypt and the Caribbean, and snowkited in Norway, Italy and Iceland (we’re not at all jealous!)
Rich has helped coach and nurture two UK champions in both the women’s and juniors fleet. Rich runs his own kite repair loft alongside kite retail and has been involved in R&D for kite manufacturers and reviewing equipment for a kite magazine. Rich is an avid wave rider and hydrofoil addict.
Sarah was the female UK wave champion in 2011 after winning the BKSA Wavemasters, and has competed in the BKSA freestyle discipline and the European Snowkite Championship. She has also sat on the BKSA board.
When not kitesurfing, working or busy being parents, they both enjoy skiing and snowboarding, wakeboarding, surfing and SUP.
BKSA kitesports ORGANISATION
Their lessons follow the internationally respected BKSA teaching scheme. This is designed to enable beginners to achieve a competent level of independence. Students will learn to fly the kite safely, launch, land, relaunch, retrieve and control the board, board start, and rescue themselves via a deep-water pack down. They will also learn to risk, and site assess the beach competently, rig and pack up, choose the correct equipment and location, avoid collision, and behave safely and responsibly as an independent kite surfer.
Lessons will include all kite and safety equipment, and will be taught on Ozone kites, one of the most respected brands in the industry.
