Get Inspired

Join us at a Buggy Camp in 2020

Inspired by ruthless German kite buggy racing efficiency, where flyers developed rapidly at their week long 'Buggy Camp' in the early years, Buggy Camps are designed around raising the skill level of all those who attend no matter what buggy you sit in or what kite you fly.

  • Come along and get guidance with your first spin in a buggy.
  • Take your buggying further with a range of games planned to develop your skills.
  • Test yourself on some of our skills challenges.
  • Get guidance on specific manouvers from experienced pilots
  • And of course we might do some racing for fun, no licence required!

Games and Challenges

As well as guidance for new flyers and buggiers, and fun racing for all (no licence required, just competence!) Buggy Camps will have a range of challenges and games that could take place throughout the weekend. Set by experienced racers and race officers they will test your capabilities with both buggy and kite and can be tailored to any skill level:

  • Suicide-gybe Knock-out - Suicide between the cones, narrower each round, drop your kite or go outside of the cones and you're out.
  • Buggy Dodgeball - as if there wasn't enough to pay attention to without balls flying at you from all angles. 3 on 3 team competition.
  • The infamous PKA Killer Slalom - just for fun, honest! Racing with a crossover in the middle and a 'killer' on the loose.
  • Tacking practice - can you Time Your Tack and fit into the fleet without obstructing anyone - one by one it will be your turn...
  • Point to point One on one - Two marks, placed anywhere on the beach, one person starting at each mark, the first to get around the other mark and back to theirs wins.
  • Tick Tack Toe, how quickly can you flow from tack to tack? Timed runs at a series of markers placed in a direct line upwind of each other with a start and end gate at each end...
