Surfing, Kitesurfing and watersports in general are becoming ever more popular in Cyprus. And with these sports a respect and a knowledge of the power and beauty of the Sea goes hand in hand. We may only be semi confident swimmers, we may panic in the 'washing machine' a wave creates, we may be need to dive a couple of metres underwater to perform a rescue, to avoid an obstacle.

This course is a MUST for everyone that is thinking of starting a watersport or who already enjoys the Sea on a regular basis. The objective is to have a confidence and a knowledge on how to deal with a chaotic situation underwater. The breathing techniques, the assimilation exercises and the rescue practise will give you the tools to enjoy the watersport at a higher level!
