Welcome to Chase the Wind

Chase the Wind is a kite surfing school in the North of England and adventures all over the world, dedicated to searching out exciting kite surfing & surfing locations. Mike has been messing about in the sea off the coasts of the North East England, Scotland and Ireland for over two decades, and knows the territory better than most.

Mike has surfed since the late seventies in Cape Town, where he was born and learned to love the ocean, turning to kite surfing just a couple of years back. Paula - Mike's wife - runs the Boatshed Hostel above the school in Scarborough, and also kites, surfs, SUPs and kayaks. The other three members of the team are Tilly (15), Harry (13) and Maddy (2) - all surf and are skate rats too!
