LESSON TYPES

Discovery

Learn how to assess the wind, set up and control a kite, and address safety rules. Get into the water on your first session!

Intermediate

Set up kite autonomously and practice body dragging, water launches, self-rescues and board recovery.

Board Start

Take your skills and practice board starts using the kite to propel you out of the water. Learn how to go upwind.

Independent

Ride upwind, toe-side, controlling speed by edging, change direction without stopping, and self-launching and landing.

These three initial sessions are paramount to become independent.

If you have kited before but are not confident in setting up your own gear or managing a kite, start with Intermediate.

What should I book?

  •  If you are a beginner, we recommend booking the 3 sessions course. You will be certified and ready to be independent by the end.

  • If you have kited on holidays a few times, we recommend booking Intermediate and Board Start.

  • If you are confident in setting up your own kite, launching and landing, controlling the kite, and body dragging, then book the Board Start. If you cannot do the tasks listed, your Board Start session will be useless and you are better off starting at Intermediate. 

Group

Group sessions are maximum 2 students to 1 instructor with ample practice time.

* 3:1 for Discovery

Private

Learn in a 1:2:1 environment to advance your skils even faster. This requires endurance as it is non-stop

Community
