WELCOME TO HAYLING KITESURFING ASSOCIATION (HKA)
Welcome to our new website! And welcome to our growing community of kitesurfers here on the south coast of England who all share a passion for kiteboarding and the nuances of the British weather.
Hayling Island is an extremely popular kite spot not only because of its great accesssibility, but also owing to the blessings of nature. Located to the north east of the Isle of Wight, the HKA kiting area is somewhat protected from significant swell generated from the prevailing south westerly winds. As with much of the south coast, the waters here are tidal. At low tides, there are flat water riding conditions - perfect for learning or indeed practising jumps and tricks, whereas at high tide, we can play in the waves. Because of this variability, HKA beach is a great spot to hone and develop a multitude of riding skills.
In these pages, you will fiind a host of information about our community at the HKA, the kiting opportunities we enjoy and details and links to various weather / tidal information sources to enable you to make informed decisions about when to come and join us out on the water. You can join our club for a nominal annual fee - and gain access to members only streaming webcam. You can also sign up to our mailing list for regular club news.
There is no charge to ride at the HKA CLUB BEACH, but we do insist that all kiters must carry adequate and valid third party kitesurfing liability insurance. We provide details about an insurance policy we have procured for the benefit of all kitesurfers and you can find plenty of information about this in our INSURANCE section.
You can join up to our mailing list below, check out our Facebook feed or sign up for membership. You can apply online here for either 'Webcam Access Only Membership' for £10 per annum or 'Full Annual Membership, Including Insurance', which includes kitesports 3rd Party Insurance, for £25 per annum.
The Hayling Kitesurfing Association exists as a co-operative club to protect and maintain access for kite-sports activities on Hayling Island. In addition, we also offer a cost-effective insurance policy to kite-sports participants across the UK. For further details please read the insurance section HERE.
In our role as an organisation we work closely with both CBK and Havant District Council. We welcome responsible riders of all skill levels to come to Hayling and enjoy these wonderful locations! Many of the top riders rate Hayling kitespots as some of the best in the World!
Hayling Island is a very popular spot not only because of the outstanding riding conditions but because of its quick accessability. It is only 5 minutes from the A27 between Southampton and Brighton and the same distance from the A3, a straight short drive from London. It is because of this we get a lot of riders from around the area including many from London.
