Course Overview:

Embark on an exciting journey into the world of kitesurfing with our immersive two-day beginner course. This comprehensive program will equip you with essential skills required to become an independent rider. With a personalized approach to teaching, we maintain a maximum student-to-instructor ratio of 2:1 to ensure you receive the attention you deserve.

We tailor the content of this course to the age and ability of our group, the beauty of 1-1 or 2-1 courses.

Day 1: Discovery & Mastery of Kite Flying

On the first day, we introduce you to the joy of flying kites. Get ready to experience maneuvering small foil kites and Leading Edge Inflatable (L.E.I.) Kites under the guidance of our expert instructors.

We will delve into Level 1: Introduction to Kite Flying. This includes:

  • Basic Kite Handling: Gain knowledge about kite anatomy and master the basics of kite handling, including launching and landing techniques.
  • LEI Rigging and Basic Flying: Learn how to rig your Leading Edge Inflatable Kite properly, understand its launch dynamics, and begin your journey towards kite flying.
  • Basic Body Dragging and Power Generation: Use the kite’s power to glide over the water’s surface. Learn how to generate and control the kite’s power effectively.
  • Directional Body Dragging, Control, and Self Rescue: Learn how to guide the kite’s power including directional changes. Also, understand essential self-rescue techniques, a crucial aspect of kitesurfing safety.

Day 2: Board Riding Essentials

The second day is all about getting you on the board and riding the waves.

In Level 2: Introduction to the Board, we will cover:

  • Introduction to Boards and Board Start Techniques: Understand the different types of kitesurfing boards and their features. Learn correct board start techniques, which will help you get up and riding smoothly.
  • First Board Starts: Put theory into practice and experience your first board starts with our expert guidance.
  • First Rides and Prolonged Power Delivery: Learn how to control your power delivery for longer rides. By the end of the day, you’ll be doing your first short rides!
  • Independent Kiteboarding – Riding with Others: Gain the confidence to ride independently and share the water with other kitesurfers. Learn the “rules of the road” to ensure a safe and fun kitesurfing experience.
