Kite Buggy Workshop

Date: Sunday 5th August 2018

Time: 10:00am - 5:30pm

Cost: £30

As part of our Wind Festival, we are very excited to bring some special Kite Buggy Workshops to the Park.

Get involved with one of the most exhilarating extreme sports in the world! Using a power kite, the wind and a three-wheeled cart, speeds in excess of 50mph can be achieved. Learning to kite buggy is actually a lot easier than you would imagine. Unlike kite landboarding where balance is essential, kite buggying is performed seated using your legs for steering and arms to control and fly the kite.

Workshop outline

  • Learn how to fly a kite (45 mins) – The kite buggy lesson will start with a brief introduction including safety, site assessment and the basic theory behind kite flying. It’s then swiftly onto the fun part – learning to fly the kites and generating the power to get you moving in the kite buggy.
  • Onto the buggy (45 mins) – After covering the kite flying skills, it’s into the buggy, introducing the steering combined with the kite flying already learnt, we aim to get you moving in both directions and whizzing up and down the tarmac track in no time.

Our Kite Buggy Workshops are £30 per person. Spaces are limited as group sizes are small. Participants must be aged 10 or over.

Workshops run at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm and last for 90 minutes.
