Rye Kitesurf Centre

Enjoy kitesurfing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding at the nearby beaches of Camber and Greatstone.


he Kitesurf Centre is the UK’s largest kitesurf school but is still a very small family run business from the office on the beach. There’s just 5 of us full time with extra seasonal staff from April to October.

Over the past 14 seasons we’ve enjoyed transforming customers into friends and some have even become colleagues. It really is a close knit, friendly community which has changed many people’s lives. We’ve seen a good number of customers move into the area to follow their newly found passion.

The centre & anyone who has ever visited Camber Sands will know just how lucky we are to have access to the best beach in the south of England for wind & water sports. We don’t take this for granted which is why we’ve have worked closely with the local councils, RNLI, coastguards, other businesses & residents to make Camber Sands as safe as possible for all who visit & allow kitesurfing and water sports to be welcome. The Kitesurf Centre now also has it’s own dedicated instructional areas away from the visiting crowds.
