As we have been studying weather forever, we also run a local scientific weather station Lowestoftweather.com this scientific weather station and is hooked upto a worldwide network supplying data to the weather forecasting community. We are currently looking for sponsorship and help in supporting Lowestoftweather,com Our previous sponsor Lowestofts Claremont Piers and Zoom Night club owner David, allowed us to base the system on the pier.The pier has new owners so weve had to remove the equipment. Lowestoft weather station and website is currently down. We hope to move the system to the shop building. During the 4 years that we based the weather system on the pier, we recieved no positive feedback from the local community, however once we took it down suddenly we had lots of feedback saying how they used it every day and loved it, from local fishermen, parachutists, paragliders and paramotorers, kiteboarders, paddlebarders. Lowestoft weather station requires alot of work and investment, costs to keep running. When it goes live again, please show your support to our staff. Weather is one of our passions and we want to share it with you.

Trevor Sergeant has been teaching kiteboarding on the east coast, pretty much since the very first kiteboarding equipment became available. He specialises in deepwater kiteboarding tuition. Some schools offer kiteboarding lessons in shallow water, however you gain a very limited experience. If you want shallow water kiteboarding lessons we can do that for you. No problem. But value for money, you the student simply dont learn as much. We are in the job of making kiteboarders for life. We dont do the "fun day out thing".

KiteboardingUK's instructor Trevor Sergeant is the only instructor that has been given permission to teach here and to have vehicle access to the beach. We have been teaching kiteboarding from Kessingland beach since 1999 This is a quite scrub beach. We keep away from the nesting birds during mid season. And to date the agreement with ourselves, local council and the local wildlife has been a good one. Indeed the numbers of birds arriving at the beach have increased year after year. Please respect what happens at Kessingland beach, please repsect the nesting grounds please respect the local commnity and the beach officers that patrol this area during nesting times. If you arrive from out of town to kiteboard there. Call us or email us first.
