Our Shop

Airtime Sports began life in a small retail unit just 50 metres from the shorefront in Lee-on-the-Solent, halfway between Southampton and Portsmouth. The shop locations was carefully selected by Ricky Cole and Lucan Bradbeer, mainly due to the easy walk to one of the top kitesurfing locations in the UK.

You can find the shop opening hours and contact details on our contact page.

The third update to the Airtime website launched in December 2010 and brings us to the cutting edge of online extreme sports retail. The site is accelerated by netdna, our favourite content delivery network.

Photos coming soon!

Meet the Team

Airtime is owned and run by kitesurfers, when we hire new staff – we make sure they can kite, and if they can’t – we teach them! If you phone our shop, drop us an email, or even come in to the shop for a chat – you can be sure that we do our homework. We work closely with the manufacturers and each product we sell has either been tested by us, or one of our close network of friends (including IKO qualified instructors and Pro Riders)

Lucan - Airtime Manager

Lucan has been with Airtime from Day One, he knows the business inside out, and provides expert advice on our full range of skateboarding and kitesurfing equipment.

When he's not relaxing on YouTube, you can usually find Lucan supping Guinness at the local, out skating, or if the wind is up - he'll be at Hill Head with a Flexifoil Ion and a Balance Wide Series kiteboard.

Ross - Kitesurfing Instructor, Southampton Kitesurfing Centre

Ross started the Southampton Kitesurfing Centre kite school in 2008 after qualifying as an IKO kiteboarding instructor. His passion for kitesurf is reflected in the quick progress of his students (95% of which think his hair looks a bit like lego hair!)

If you're interested in learning to kitesurf or taking kiteboarding lessons, Ross is the man to talk to. The best way to contact him is via the Southampton Kitesurfing Centre website or, as he is often at the beach, his mobile 07863 811 644
