Learn how to kitesurf


Intro Kitesurf Course

1 day, 3.5 hrs, €190


This is just a guideline, as we always focus on individual needs and everyone learns differently.

1.1

Hola kite (2 hr)

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 and practise good kite control. After this, we go over all the steps on setting up a kite and bar and see how the safety systems work. We end the beach part by flying the big kite with some more power, so we can get used to the feeling of flying a big powerfull kite.

1.2

To the water (1.5hr)

In the second part we go into the water with this big powerfull kite! We do some basic steering and saftey exercises, 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! Also we learn to relaunch the kite from the water in case it falls. We finish the intro course with learning to pack up the kite in the correct way.
