The Coda Way

Lesson One

The aim of this first lesson is to give you a taste for the sport and to help you develop some basic skills and safety techniques. In this 3 hour session you will learn the basics of kite flying and will master the skill of ‘bodydragging’ in the water. Bodydragging is a fantastic way to safely introduce you to the power of the wind, using the kite’s power to pull you through the water.

Lesson Two

Things now step up a gear! During the 3 hours you will learn more advanced handling skills, that will help you feel at home while piloting the kite. If you’re killing it by this stage then we may introduce you to a board!

Lesson Three

Ready to rip? This session will be about getting you up on that board and finally riding the wind. You’ll never forget your first few rides and, we have to warn you, from this point on you’ll be hooked. There’s no better feeling than flying along the water, powered by the mighty Devonshire wind. You’ll be buzzing for hours after…

Additional Lessons

People progress at different rates, so you may or may not require additional lessons. Whether you want the confidence of having us out there for a few more sessions, or want to advance quickly into nailing your first jumps and tricks – we’ve got your back!


Home to Coda Watersports, Exmouth is one of the best locations for Kitesurfing in the UK. With spots facing North and South, and consistent conditions – we can kite in pretty much any wind direction. Our large, flat shallow areas are excellent for teaching beginners, as well as amazing for freestyle sessions. If you’re keen to kite on a surfboard, we also get a killer small wave on the right day.

My first ever experience at kitesurfing was fun and I was happy with Ned’s approach to introduction as he made the lesson fun and also made us feel at ease. I fully recommend Taylored Watersports. My next lesson is booked.

Been trying to kitesurf for nearly a year with mixed success trying to waterstart. I took a 2 hour lesson with Ned and the dude had me riding my first long runs within the first hour. His teaching style relaxes you from the off and following in the boat giving you further instructions is great. Cheers Ned.

Ned is an excellent instructor and explains everything clearly and concisely. He quickly pinpointed where I was going wrong when riding which has enabled me to get up riding more consistently and confidently.

As a beginner I can’t recommend Ned enough!
