When it comes to kite surfing Southern Extreme have been in the business since day one as the retail arm behind Paracademy which was one of the very first kite board schools in the country and has taught instructors and kite surfers since 1999. Most qualified kite surf teachers from all over the globe of graduated via the Paracademy at Portland Harbour in Dorset and the name is a global brand with schools employing Paracademy trained staff as far away as the Philippines, New Zealand, Hawaii and Hong Kong.
The centre was set up by Neil Godbold early 1999 when the sport in the UK was in it's infancy. Paracademy became Paracademy Extreme in 2006 and has gone from strength to strength based on the quality of tuition and local conditions being second to none for the sport.
Southern Extreme started as a spin off of the Paracademy many years ago and sold a few items through the store in Paracademy Extreme's head office on Portland in Dorset. A few years back we started to build our own online shop selling mostly a few things that we use ourselves and are happy to promote. Early 2015 we expanded our store with more brands again using only brands we ourselves use on the water in all capacities from freestyle to wave, racing to freeride. This in turn means when we sell you kit we know the kit and everything about it.
Today, the Paracademy and Southern Extreme are know around the world and our brand has grown to be that of support, safety, trust and quality.
How do we look after you?
