Ticket to Ride Open a Kitesurfing Division

Ticket to Ride have opened a Kitesurfing Division offering a range of Gap Year and Career Break courses in Diani Beach, Kenya and have opened a Kitesurfing Academy in Exmouth, Devon.

The brainchild of two school friends Will Hayler and Linley Lewis (both 27), Ticket to Ride was set up in 2005 to run unique surf courses in South Africa, and off the back of their success have since expanded operations into Mozambique, Costa Rica, Portugal aswell as opening a Surf Academy in Perranporth; and the opening of a Kitesurfing division is the latest in an impressive line of developments.

"Kitesurfing is a hugely growing sport, and has long since been a hobby of mine. We have always had the plan to bring it into Ticket to Ride, and to now have it on our books is hugely exciting for all of us" commented TTRide co-founder Will Hayler.

In order to maintain the same high level of quality for which TTRide has become renowned they have acquired Kitesurfing specialists Zephyr kites, and bring their team onboard to ensure specialist knowledge of the sport and locations.

"We are hugely excited to come under the Ticket to Ride brand, they have built a strong reputation for their operations, and joining them made a lot of sense" said Henry Waite former owner of Zephyr, and new Head of TTRide Kitesurfing.

The flagship course will be an 8 week assistant instructor course on Diani Beach leaving on 20th January, and there are also 6 week and 2 week options available. Prices start from £1295 including all tuition for the duration of the course, a safari, half board accommodation, qualifications and more.
