Beginners Introduction Kitesurf Course


Beginners Kitesurf Course

1 day, 3.5hrs, €190


Below you can find a description of all the steps that we will take during the beginner kitesurfing course. This is just a guideline; as we always focus on individual needs and everyone learns differently, your course may be a little different too.

1.1

Hola kite (1.5hr)

We start with an introduction to kite flying, using a small training kite; This small kite has no real power, but it works just like the big one, so we can learn how to fly it safely. After this, we go over all the steps involved in properly setting up a kite and bar, and how the safety systems work. We end this module by flying the big kite on the beach with minimal power, so we can get used to the feeling of flying a big kite.

1.2

To the water (2hr)

In the second module of the day we go into the water with the kite, but without a board. We do some basic steering exercises in the water, after which we start to play with the true power of the kite: we fly through the water like superman doing what is called a "bodydrag". We learn to relaunch the kite from the water in case it falls, and to walk back along the beach to the starting point with one hand. We finish learning to disassemble the kite in the correct way.
