Kitesurfing School Galway

Welcome to Galway's freshest Kitesurfing School, ready to share the stoke and shred with new kitesurfing students. Stocking the best, newest gear for students. We have gone a step above other schools and invested in premium harnesses, helmets and buoyancy aids to ensure your first time on the water is both safe & Comfortable.

At Paddyintheelements we believe in Quality over Quantity, so we only offer 1 to 1 private lessons. This ensures you get what you pay for and quality time on the kite with 1:1 instruction.

Other schools in Ireland will do the first land-lessons with 6 students to 1 instructor and the on-water lessons with 4 students to 1 instructor. This severely hampers your learning time, dilutes your instruction and means your're paying for 3 hours of lessons and may only get 1 hour of actual kite flying time.

We believe that 1:1 instruction is the most bang for your buck and also the safest on the water.
