BKSA LEVEL CERTIFICATION & ABILITY ASSESSMENT

To hire you must have completed a course and be BKSA / IKO level 2 certified or show a competent level of skill and riding ability. We require you to pass a 10 minute safety assessment before allowing you on the water. If you’re unable to successfully demonstrate, then you will need a private lesson with an instructor before being able to rent.

 

INSURANCE

Hold your own third party liability insurance by joining the BKSA with an annual membership. It covers you for up to £5 million in 3rd party liability (if you crash your kite on someone or it hits a 3rd party causing damage or injury)

If the equipment is lost or damaged then the equipment must be purchased at 70% of the RRP  

Please bring a recognised form of ID and bank card when hiring the equipment

TIDE TIMES

Kite rental times are dependent on the tides and need booking in advance, check our online booking system which shows what times are available. Kitesurfing at Wallasey Beach is restricted at high tide due to space restrictions and the detriment this has on safety.
