I haven’t been lazing all this holiday! Today marks a monumental occassion, I achieved a surf in Kitesurfing today!
After 3 days, today I was able to stand up using a 12 metre (thats huge!) Kite to propel me across the crystal clear waters in Cabarete, Dominican Republic.
Taught by a wicked French Kitesurf professional, I finally cracked it! Its an amazing experience!
Just flying the kite is hard enough! You constantly have to battle with the wind to prevent the kite from pulling you in the wrong direction! In my time at the Kite Club, my school for the three days, I saw many beginners getting dragged, wiping out and getting tangled with other kiters. I’ve never seen so many kites! Kites everywhere!, all sizes and all colours! At one point I counted up to fifty plus kiters in the water, its like the M25 with kites!
I now fully intend to become an “independent” rider, by taking some more lessons back in Brighton, although it won’t be as lush as doing it in boardshorts and sunnies!
This week I have five classes for you to choose from!
I will be away from Thursday, but I’ve arranged cover for my classes at ZT during the next two weeks.
Both instructors are Kettlebell instructor qualified. I’ll ensure they are well briefed on how the classes take place and ensure they keep the high standard you are used to.
Please find below the class schedule for the coming month.

Congratulations to Sophie Fuller for being the biggest loser with an amazing 11lbs lost! That’s the equivalent of a 5kg dumbell! The whole group did amazingly well. Everyone stuck to the diet, with only a couple is mishaps at the half way point.
As a believer of walking the walk, I did the entire programme with the group, following the diet to the letter and training every day with Kettlebells, weights and Battling ropes.
This allowed me to sympathise and understand with the group and how they felt. The first week was the hardest, with caffeine withdrawals from hell! Personally I wasn’t expecting any weight loss, in fact I gained a kilo in the four weeks, but I am leaner and sharper than ever. My energy levels are through the roof!
I’ve enjoyed the programme so much, I intend to keep off wheat, caffeine and dairy forever! Alcohol will be very much in moderation, maybe once a month for special occasions.
I’ll be rolling out another programme in May in preparation for the Summer months!
Bring it on!
Are you in it? Recognise anyone?
