UK Kitesurfing Road Trip – ‘Staycation’ – Hadlow, Court & Crathern

Freeride Project UK Road Trip

Tom Court’s new Freeride Project video with Aaron Hadlow and Lewis Crathern, shot late last year, shows just why many kiters are so stoked with exploring the UK coastline! 


What Tom says: 

So with the inevitable ‘cancelation’ on traveling this season it is going to be clear that we will need to explore our local area’s a lot more. Luckily for us here in the UK there is an abundance of coastline that is prime for some kiteboard shreddery.

At the end of last year, just before lockdown started we managed to squeeze in a last minute road trip through the UK chasing a storm down the coast to wards Cornwall. Linking up with Aaron Hadlow and Lewis Crathern, and taking the new Duotone Rebel, we made a plan to hit some of the UK biggest landmarks and best coastal locations to kiteboard and sent it in the vans.

Sleeping in our vans and following the wind, we scored some epic sessions, big air, freestyle, freeride and generally just found the most fun that we could as we explored. Kiting with cruise ships as they lay dormant during the Covid outbreak, thinking about threading Durdle Door and ending up in Cornwall for one of the strongest storms of the season for some perfect boosting kickers!
