Wild Families of Tiree 2018
Have you got kids? then you need to watch this! Jo Wilson just launched a new family-friendly coaching course and ran the first one in Tiree recently. If you wanted to go you had to have kids, this meant that parental time could be shared between kiting, coaching and childcare. As far as we know Jo is the first person to start to offer these types of holidays and we think it’s a fantastic idea. If you want to get involved in these unique adventures check out next years dates here. duotone

Combining family life and kitesurfing is what we are all about and I can’t tell you how proud we are at Jo Wilson Coaching to present you with this video highlighting our first full family-friendly kitesurfing holiday that we ran earlier this autumn (2018) on Tiree, Scotland. We could not be prouder because we had 4 families all with children under the age of 5 taking part.
The best thing about this trip was that the kitesurfing was just a bonus to the trip… we ran kitesurfing sessions on the beach from 9.30am – 5.30pm. The mornings were for one parent while the afternoons were for the other meanwhile on the beach the parent with the child had company while the children razzed around on bikes, climbing rocks, fishing in rock pools, cooking sausages on fires, splashing about with bodyboards and hunkering down in to each other’s vans with shared boxes of ‘van toys’. The trip was just truly epic with the kids running around from morning until night having the time of their lives…. and boy did they sleep well too! Meanwhile, the adults received more than enough kitesurfing coaching on the beach helping them to improve their level!
One testimonial was from the dad of 16 months old ‘B’…
“Another thank you, not for the kiting thus time but for a fab holiday for ‘B’. I have just spent an hour with him charging around the ferry shouting, exploring and chatting to people in a way he would not have done on the way out to Tiree. He has developed his confidence for exploring away from us so much in the last week, something that could not have happened on another type of holiday. Please keep doing the family-friendly holidays we are leaving with such special memories.”
Tiree offers conditions then I described as adventurous, epic and memorable. There are beaches facing all directions ensuring you receive a good mix of fairly flat water and waves… it is also the sunniest British Isle, that being said you should most certainly bring your waterproofs! I don’t think there is a more active, natural, adventurous & healthy way to holiday with your children and I cannot wait to run this trip again next year.
