about us

Planet Kitesurf is a dedicated kitesurf travel company operating out of our water front offices on the south coast in the Brighton area; just a stones throw away from one of the best kitesurf beach in the area - the 'Hot Pipes'. Planet Kitesurf is a trading name of Planet Travel Ltd, a water sports specialist travel company also offering windsurfing (Planet Windsurf Holidays), diving (Planet Dive Holidays) and new for 2011/12, Stand Up Paddlleboarding (Planet SUP Holidays). At the inception of Planet back in 1997 Kitesurfing was in it's infancy, in fact it was not until around 2000 that Planet launched it's dedicated Kitesurf travel programme; the very first UK travel company to do so! Since that time Planet have been at the very forefront of Kitesurf Travel in the UK, and even Europe, and we are proud to currently be the most well established and largest kitesurf tour operator in the UK. 

Having such a passion within the company for the sport means that we really do understand our clients and their holiday aspirations. For example we understand how important it is to for beginner or improver to be in a safe and reassuring environment; we all had to learn at some time and we can guide you through our personal experiences. Likewise we also understand how important it is to get the right holiday for non-kitesurfing partners and family; Planet only offer the highest standard of accommodation options in each location and we have been there personally to make sure we are well informed about which are suitable for both kiters and non-kiters alike.

This is backed up with a highly pro-active ethos within the company; we are always striving to do better through constant product development and research along with heavy investment in the latest travel IT systems to ensure that we can provide the fastest and most competitive responses to our clients requests.

Specialty - Diving and Tailor Made Tours

After leaving school I was lured by into the City by financial rewards but following Black Monday I set out on an odyssey to see the world. Having started diving at 10 with BSAC Abbey Wood, the Great Barrier Reef was my first taste of diving coral reefs and it changed my world. Over the ensuing 8 years I mixed dive instruction and guiding, with sampling some of the world’s great ski spots. Eventually the call of England’s sunny south coast became too great, so I combined my love of travel with a ‘proper job’. Working in Tour Operating, from the UK’s largest long-haul operator to running my own activity travel organisor. More recently I indulged  a desire to sail by working for the world’s leading yacht charter company. I'm now enjoying family life and getting back to my roots planning proper holidays for real people.


Specialty - Dive, Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be on or under the water and so, combined with my passion for travel, I find myself in the perfect job! Since graduating I have traveled extensively around the world to include most of North, East and South Africa, many Mediterranean locations but only scratched the surface of Asia with a couple of trips to Bali…which was amazing. For the future I would like to see more of Asia and the western hemisphere. I have worked in the travel industry for almost 20 years now and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love talking to clients about the places I have visited and sharing my passion for the sports. For me the most rewarding part of the job is being able to put all my experience and knowledge into providing an amazing tailor made tours for that special trip.


Admin Manager

  I began my career in travel back in the early 1980’s and, after less than a year in the job, found myself managing a high street agency. Over the years I went on to work for a few of the “big names” in the industry and was one of the 12 people who, back in the late 90’s, were responsible for setting up and opening a brand new high street chain which, I am pleased to say, is still running today (although the parent company decided to change its name a few years ago). I joined Planet about 5 years ago and, since then, have seen the company go from strength to strength with the focus shifting dramatically towards making specialised holidays for our specialist clients. These days, as I contemplate entering my “middle age” years, I divide my time between taking care of the administration at Planet and having plenty of fun times with my young son.


Specialty - Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

For a long time I have had a keen interest in travelling for both the sports opportunities and cultural experience.  I started my career in sports travel, running a golf holiday tour operation and progressed to the more 'extreme' sports.  I have had a interest in board sports for many years - skating, surfing, windsurfing and kiting.  I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to mix my job with my spare time pursuits.  I have extensive knowledge of most of our destinations and look forward to increasing the amount of combination sports and tours we provide. My favourite destinations are Mauritius, Vietnam and Dakhla, Morocco - I have been fortunate to travel to Europe, The Americas, Asia and Africa within my years of working in the travel industry. I have a young family and have travelled with them extensively so can help with this part of trip planning.


Specialty - Windsurf, Kitesurf, Tailor Made Tours

After finishing college at the age of 19 I took a year out and went off to 'explore the world!' to find out what all the fuss was about! I love sports, action and adventure of any kind so it was no surprise to find out that some of my absolute favorite destinations include the India Ocean, South East Asia, South Africa, Australia & New Zealand! I've had the bug ever since and I'm constantly looking to try out a new destinations and experience new things - my next big trip might have to involve Borrocay in the Phillipines, home to some awesome kite surfing and apparantly 3 of the worlds top ten beaches! I think I need to confirm this for myself! Some of the best experiences I've ever had include Cage diving with sharks, bungee jumping off Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa, sailing around the Whitsunday Islands in Oz and recently running the Brighton Marathon (biggest personal achievement!) I started at Planet Travel in 2012 after working in the travel industry for over 10 years and now myday to day job involves sharing my experiences from around the world and creating the most exciting kite surf and windsurf holidays possible for our clients.  I've even got a sea view from my desk. What's not to like?!



Since my childhood I love travel around the world to discover new cultures and to share it with other people. I have traveled in a lot of countries in Asia, Africa and South America. I am always dreaming about traveling in new places. Studying a Bachelor degree of Management of Tourism in France, i have worked a lot in hotels in Spain and France and it was a great experience. I wanted to work as an intern in a tour operator in England to learn more about travel industry and to be more fluent in English. With Planet Travel I found a great place to learn more about travel companies and to continue to live my passion.



  My career in finance management goes back many years and I have a great deal of experience in book keeping and financial control working for a wide variety of companies. I have worked with Planet Travel for almost 10 very happy years and during that time I have watched the company grow from a small 2 staff business to one of the UK’s leading watersport specialists. In my spare time I have a passion for cycling and have toured many countries on 2 wheels including Peru, Israel, Cuba, India, Vietnam and China. Regions on my to do list are South Africa and South Carolina. 


Marketing Manager

Watersports have a habit of creeping back into my life no matter how hard offices try to capture me. After working in Brazil, Egypt, Greece, Austria and other places I'm sure i have forgotten at the moment, I found myself working in digital marketing until this position arose at Planet Travel. The opportunity to get back into the action sports industry proved too tempting, so I find myself marketing Planet Travel's product to the UK and beyond!
