Kernow Kitesurf Club in School

1 April 2009 | 8:53 am

On the Thursday before half term, as part of Mounts Bay Schools, learning week KKC chairman, Lee ’Pasty’ Harvey gave a talk on kites and Kitesurfing to 170 year 7 pupils. With gasps of excitement as the kite inflated, all the youngsters were really keen on trying the sport and were interested in both Kitesurfing and Powerkites.

Lee gave a brief history of kites and the sport of Kitesurfing before showing the different types of kites, boards and harnesses you can use.

With a lot of questions being asked as well as most of them wanting to have a go (teachers as well), lee in his new job role for Penwith Schools Sports Partnership as school/club links co-ordinator, is now formulating a plan to deliver power kiting within all Cornish schools as part of an after school club, with a view to the youngsters moving onto Kitesurfing through their local kite school.
