We're grandparents aged 80 and 70, with grandsons aged 12 and 9. We ALL had a terrific time land yachting, and thanks to Jamie and Guy's cheerful and patient instruction, we all managed to sail on the superb West Sands, the odd capsize notwithstanding.

Don't miss this if you're in St Andrews so much fun, great coaching and relatively easy to do. We were a party of 7 and the guys made our day perfect, lots of humour coupled with good coaching that quickly gets you in control. Thereafter we spent a couple of hours buzzing across the beach having so much fun. Don't... More

Think this was actually November 2013. so a long overdue review. So much fun, booking was easy over the phone (called for a last minute get away) i think 2 days notice. Thankfully weather and tides were in our favour.

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!!
