We had a brilliant time on the beach as a family ranging from 70 to 10 years old - Guy and Jamie were great instructors and made it immense fun for everyone. Can’t wait to have another go!

Tried the land yachting with these guys lately and it was brilliant. Adults and kids alike will have a fab time doing this activity. Couldn't recommend this any higher this is something you really must do.

Great morning land yachting in St Andrews. Friendly, helpful instruction and plenty of wind meant it was easy to pick up quickly for a couple of hours of fun whizzing up and down the beach! Highly recommend.

We had so much fun land yachting! The three of us had never done any land yachting before, and Guy and Jamie were very friendly and helpful teaching us all about it. Super fun time on the beach, would definitely recommend Blown Away!

A group of 13 women done landyachting and beach olympix on Saturday. Luckily the weather was dry which made the day even better. All instructors were great fun and very supportive. We all had such a laugh and everyone loved the alternative hen doo activities.
