Kite Camp, Pagudpud, Philippines
This trip is about progresing your kitesurfing
. Brad will get you riding harder and faster on twin-tips whilst introducing directional boards to the portfolio.
We have a great reef break here at Kingfisher so some waves will be on the menu whilst the flat water lagoon will offer the perfect training ground for developing your overall skills. Conditions allowing, we'll be looking at mixing up the routine with a downwinder or two. The Philippines has a spectacular coastline and so no better to appreciate that from the water.

About Brad Symington
Brad Symington has been kiting and a fully Qualified instructor since 2001 and has a passion for seeing others success. Having started schools both in the UK and in cape Town as well as teaching in locations from Mozambique to Mauritius, he has amassed a wealth of knowledge which he is happy to share with fellow riders.
With his latest protégé making it to no 1 on the South African tour and also picking up an international sponsor along the way, his ability to coach from beginner to expert and anything in-between has become part of his reputation as a great coach and instructor.
Brad in Action
Having represented various brands along the way, his tests in Kiteworld Magazine show that his un biased opinion on equipment is there to get people on the water feeling comfortable and grooving a style of their own with what suits them.
“I have two goals with every student. The first is to have as much fun as possible while achieving the second and that being learning as much as you can in the time we have together.’’
Surfing for almost 20 years and now taking up SUP for the past 3 years, Brad and a friend were the first people to SUP around The Isle of Wight last year and his stoked approach to this new sport is much the same as with kiting.
