Things have come a long way

Who would have thought looking at this guy that the sport would grow to where it is now. People must have thought he was nuts.

Team Riders Wanted


If you are interested in becoming a BLAST team rider - contact us with your profile/vids/pics. Being a team rider is about spreading the word and being a good abassador for both Blast and the sport, helping to promote our equipment and in return you will receive product discounts and of course get to ride some awesome kit.


The main equipment offered will be either Genetrix Kites or Zeeko Kites plus Blankforce Boards and Mystic etc. But we will also be sponsoring with our other suppliers such as Wainman,Mutiny,Naish and Best.
You don't have to be the best kitesurfer out there.you don't have to be competing either as we are simply looking for super enthusiastic kiters who want to "spread the love"
Only a deep passion for the sport and the equipment is required!

You will find all the BLAST teamriders stoked to help out with advice where ever they can assist.


Email us with your details: info@blastkiteboarding.co.uk

Golf...you gotta love it!

One of the many Porthcawl Golf Courses!

Brecon Beacons 19th December

A few of us (actually I counted 12) trecked up the Beacons with huge expectations after all the snow we have had in the past. We met at the car park at Storey Arms and spotted a few kites already up on the peak in the clouds.
Unfortunately after the slog up the hill we found there was simply not enough wind. Wenglish tried with his 9.5m HQ foil kite but ....nada!
Still it was a good afternoon out and we did get to snowboard back down!

Check the two kites up in the clouds, click the photo to enlarge!

More snow (but no wind)

Coney Beach 18th December

Woke up to find another dump of the white gold here in South Wales. There was no wind but a nice wave coming in at Rest Bay. Looks like it could be on for tomorrow (Sunday) up the Beacons for a proper snow kite session!

Snow Kiting in S.Wales (again)

What a fantastic day we've had today! Woke up too a total white out here in S.Wales and quickly realised the wind was building too. So once we'd loaded the car and slid most of the way to Rest Bay, Porthcawl we quickly set up our 7m Kites and were on it!

We had two sessions and were joined by our good friend Alun J who was on his 5.5m and still well powered up. It looks like we should have a shit load more snow over the w/end so are hoping to get up the Brecon Beacons (if they open the roads)
More to follow!
