Please Note: NWKS can arrange most things for you, but unfortunately we cannot control the weather. We can teach kiting safely in winds from 12 to 25mph. But should your course fail to go ahead due to lack of or too much wind you will be offered alternative dates – or if you are unable to return, an alternative outdoor activity such as a Zap Cat Blast, Towable Fun, or Wakeboarding.
