Meet the Team
Tim Ovens and Louise McDonagh (now Mr and Mrs McOvens!) opened Mobius kite school in March 2004. They wanted to share their passion of kite sports with everyone by introducing people safely with professional tuition. Since opening, Mobius have become the first BKSA Approved School in Cornwall and are the lead specialists in kite flying instruction. Having already introduced thousands of people into kite activities, they aim to keep the sport growing safely and to continue their work with local councils and beach owners to keep access open and the beaches safe. Tim and Louise initially started teaching by themselves, but now get frequently visited by other BKSA instructors who join their team. Keep an eye on this page to see any new faces at Mobius.
Tim (aka Timo) has been kiting since 1999 and instructing since 2001. In the summer of 2003 he took part in his first BKSA competition, where he won the expression session (best trick contest), and was named best newcomer of the year. Although Timo has not returned to competition circuit, having concentrated his efforts on the business, the standard of riding is so high in Cornwall, enabling him to push his kitesurfing from strength to strength. Timo is also a BKSA trainer, allowing him to run refresher, cross-over, and assistant instructor courses, in addition to all the other courses that Mobius have to offer.
Louise started power kiting in summer 2003 and had learnt to kitesurf by the end of the summer. She completed her BKSA qualifications to become an instructor back in September 2004. She continues to gain teaching experience and with her big smile and fun approach to instructing, everyone gets the most out of their lesson. Louise also hopes that being a female instructor will encourage more women into the sports. You will always see her out kitesurfing before and after lessons, riding the waves and doing big carve turns!
