Kite surfing has been the fastest growing watersports for the past 7 years, and there is a reason why! Using the power of the wind to propel yourself across the surface of the water, carving through the waves and jumping into the sky is what draws people again and again to the beach.
The most popular land based kite sports are Jumping, Buggying and Land Boarding. All of these sports can be enjoyed in the lightest of winds, making them a great light wind (and dry) alternative to kitesurfing.
We work with the guys and gals from 514Elemental to provide a first class experience.
You will be given all the necessary equipment and safety briefings. A land based lesson will be carried out before we hit the water!
It usually takes longer than 1 session to get you up and riding on the board. In this first lesson we will nail the kite flying and at least get wet in the first stages of learning to kitesurf!
As with all the sports we operate, kitesurfing is weather dependant. If the wind is too light to get in the water with the kite we will carry out a land buggying and land boarding lesson which is just as fun!
Beginner or advanced tuition available.

Explore and hike the South West coast path with Livit Adventures. This a new activity for us and it is already getting very popular. Great activity for everyone and all abilities it is a truly stunning experience.
The South West Coast Path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and a National Trail. It stretches for 630 miles, running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall, to Poole Harbour in Dorset.
Since it rises and falls with every river mouth, it is also one of the more challenging trails. The total height climbed has been calculated to be 114,931 ft (35,031 m), almost four times the height of Mount Everest. It has been voted ‘Britain’s Best Walking route twice in a row by readers of the Ramblers Walk magazine and regularly features in lists of the world’s best walks.
You will start your walk early in the morning after breakfast, you will need to be equipped with good walking shoes or trainers and a water supply and of course, dont forget your camera.
The Livit Adventure bus will drop you and your guide to the start point we usually cover between 5-10 miles of the south-west coast path in morning walk. You will usually walk back to the campsite or be picked back up by our bus. Lunch will then be ready for you when you get to the end of the hike. On your way, you will be amazed by the natural beauty of the coast path, you will pass natural coves, lovely quiet beaches, and quiet farmland with sheep peacefully grazing.
Some of the routes we walk will take you from Westward Ho! (this is the only placename in the UK which includes an exclamation mark). The path then follows the coast around Clovelly Bay where several small villages including Abbotsham lie inland, because of the cliffs. The path passes the site of the Iron Age Hill fort at Peppercombe Castle and the village of Bucks Mills. Clovelly itself is a historic village with a small natural harbor. The path continues past the site of the Iron Age Hill fort at Windbury Head to Hartland Point and Hartland Quay. Hartland Point features a lighthouse and radar tower and marks the western limit (on the English side) of the Bristol Channel with the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The island of Lundy, which is visible from many points along the path between Welcombe and the Cornish border.
