Life’s all about having fun and learning as you go. Thats why as well as our regular kite courses we offer learn to kite holidays right here in Wales. Learn to kite, try kitebuggy, land kiteboarding and stand up paddleboarding while you chill out with great company over a few drinks and a BBQ.There’s lots of options to choose from. Have a go at the exhilarating sport of kitesurf, Kite Buggy, Landboarding or Powerkiting with Coastriders kitesurfing in West Wales. We’re open all year and run courses 7 days a week.Coastriders is based in Aberdovey which is just north of Aberystwyth. We generally use the beach just north of Aberdyfi, but as we are a mobile school we use both the Aberdovey and Borth beaches, whichever gives us the mos suitable wind conditions on the day. This enables us to use coastline that has miles of never ending flat beach for landboarding and buggying as well as the safe shallow lagoons for you to learn to kitesurf in.

Managed a last minute booking onto a kite buggy taster session for my 3 teenage sons. They had a great afternoon in a lovely location and made good progress thanks to the coaching they received. If we're back over this way I've no doubt they'll be looking to have another go or try their hand at kite-surfing. Thanks Liesa

I went on the course this week with my son aged 13 and Nephew aged 20. I have done a previous course with another company and the comparison was huge. I felt that Lisa was able to communicate exactly what needed to be done in order to have a successful day out. It's not easy having to deal with such... More

Booked onto the VIP 1 day course-having only done a 1 hour taster session before - by the end of the day I was up and riding! Amazing experience which would not have been possible without a fantastic coach! The instruction and equipment was first rate - Lisa really has an eye for identifying what you are doing wrong, enabling... More

I bought £180 worth of gift vouchers from this company as a present for my two sons. They tried to arrange for the lessons but Coastriders were never able to offer lessons on the dates my sons tried to book, on a number of occasions, because of adverse weather conditions. You would think that a business like this might be... More

Peter H's sons, was in fact just one son who was repeatedly asked by us starting in January 2013 at the start of his voucher date to please confirm some dates to start his course with us, He was never rescheduled by us due to bad weather as he never actually booked a date with us in the first place....

I was appalled at the poor level of customer service shown by Coastriders. After receiving 2 days tuition for a 21st birthday present I tried on numerous occasions to book on to redeem the vouchers only to be to given a range of excuses as to why they weren't able to teach at that time. "Open 7 days a week... More

Angus H first contacted us in 2011! to arrange a kitesurf lesson, during this period he never actually got around to booking anything, subsequently his Father bought him a voucher in Jan 2012. Angus was immediately emailed and asked for some advance dates for his lesson, to which we got no reply. A few more emails passed backwards and forwards... More
