This kitesurf course is 4 hours long and takes place in one day. The course is divided in two parts. We always adapt the lesson to your needs and learning speed. The following overview is an indication of what you can expect during the course:
(In case you can't do 4 hours in one day we can also split the course over two days. For reservation all we need is your available dates, we will plan the lesson when it suits you.)
Basic kite control, how to setup a kite & safety.
The first hour is aimed at teaching you a basic understanding of the kite and how to use it safely. We will start with flying a small kite, to teach you basic steering skills. This is followed by an explanation and practise of setting up the kite and bar.
In the second hour we will cover everything about wind directions and the windwindow. Fly a bigger kite, start first relaunch excercises and get comfortable with the power of the kite! For this you do not need to be trained or strong, the more relaxed you hold the bar the easier it is!
In the second part of the class we will go into the water without the board, using the power of the kite to go body surfing through the water like superman. Great fun! Relax your body, focus on the kitecontrol and create power by moving the kite. We will also practice the kite relaunch; this is how to get the kite out of the water when it falls, which will make you more independent.
We will do an introduction of the board in which the instructor will do a demo so you know what to expect in the next course. Putting the board on your feet, making the first waterstart and learning how to ride.
Once the beginner course is completed, you can continue with the progression course or the single board lessons, this depends on your learning speed. This decision will be made together with your instructor.
