would just like to say we had a great time with Blownaway land yachting on the West Beach. The guys were really friendly and helpful and land yachting terrific fun in the (strong) wind. Must do it again! We had no trouble changing dates etc when either we could not make it or weather was unsuitable but I don't know... More

Our family of four were very excited for our Thursday afternoon Land Surfing excursion which we booked with Blown Away. We were in St Andrew's for a golf trip, but wanted to experience some of Scotland's other activities as well, and Blown Away seemed like a different and exciting time. Communication via email before the event was rather good. everything... More

After 9 emails arranging and rearranging a date for a group of four to go landyachting, we received a 10th email at 7.54am on the morning of the rearranged and confirmed booking that the group was cancelling. This extremely short notice gave us no opportunity to resell the spaces. Our terms and conditions are very clear on this subject and... More

We have just returned from St Andrews having spent the day with Jamie and Guy from Blown Away. They were full of enthusiasm, laughs and great company for the day – making sure all participants were safe and got the most out of the experience. We booked the Zap catting in the morning (Boom!) and Land yachts in the afternoon.... More

Had an amazing day out stand up paddle boarding with the Blown Away boys. Great way to do something different in St Andrews. Could not recommend more highly if you enjoy the outdoors and don't mind getting wet!!

Possibly the best thing on the east coast of Scotland! Guy and Jamie have done a fantastic job and have set up a wonderful company. We spent the afternoon paddle boarding, and I haven't had that much fun on the water in a long time- I'm dying to go again! They are hilarious guys, so kind and great teachers. I... More

Such nice people! We had a great time. Jamie and Guy were so kind and funny, helping us get started. The land yachting was really exciting once you got the hang of the corners! We would definitely recommend this as a fantastic experience for all the family. You might want to wear some bike gloves to protect your hands! What... More

We had a Hen Party of 28 taking part in Beach Bride Olympics and everyone had a fantastic day! The team looking after us were professional but also very good fun. We were lucky enough to have great weather and the cupcakes were pretty good too. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Attended the land yachting at St Andrews and the Blown Away team were fantastic! They are a great team, a good laugh and really down to earth. Family and friends had a day out to remember with the "Mario cart" novelty of the yachting experience. Having built a land yacht for my course it was a pleasure to see and... More
