"On the instructor level I think you are brilliant, very patient to say the least, every stage was broken down,
a completely new way of working to get things to sink in." 
– Paul Ramsden
"Paige was a fantastic instructor, she had a amazing ability to  understand exactly what information you needed and when. I was lucky enough to get up and riding and the process from begining to end was so smooth due to Paige’s attention to detail. Her method of teaching meant that I had total confidence and understanding of each stage and progressing forward was seamless. Her passion for teaching and ability to understand each individual sets her apart" – David Holborow

WHAT IS TOTAL IMMERSION KITESURFING?

Our aim with our Total Immersion System is to make you an independent kitesurfer as soon as we possibly can. At North Devon Kitesurfing we only give one session a day…yours, so you can be guaranteed we’ll be on the beach when the wind is best for you.From our Winter Camps in Tarifa this year we have finally fully refined our teaching methodology and completed our Total Immersion System, this rapidly improves learning time (utilizing cutting edge NLP and deep learning practices) and has the potential to get you up and on the board much quicker.Total Imm 2We believe the best way to learn is to totally immerse yourself in something. That’s why on our sessions we don’t just teach you to kitesurf, we immerse you in it. From the theory you need to know…and some extra that you are never taught but really should be.. to the practical, with some amazing methods that once mastered will make it seem so easy.Total Imm 4You’ll have fewer wipe-outs and less stress as our system is designed to remove the points of failure and inspire confidence earlier by trying to eliminate the chances of messing up to start with.

As a person relaxes with what they are trying to do, that action becomes effortless as your body actually assists in the action rather than fighting it. Our system makes you as comfortable as possible as early as possible so that you relax and you are in a receptive place where you can learn effortlessly.

As part of our Total Immersion System once you have finished your main session we offer supervision so you can carry on and practise (this is subject to suitability). This is an extremely important part of the Total Immersion System as it gives you the time to put into practice what you have learnt before moving on.

Our Total Immersion System is unique and ends up saving you time and money.
