  • This course is the most efficient way to learn to kitesurf. By utilizing our boat service as part of your lessons you will avoid other beginners in the general teaching zones. It removes this risk from any coastal hazards such as rocks and stones. Learning with boat assistance gives you freedom and space allowing you to drift downwind removing the stress of other nearby kitesurfers and obstacles.
  • Spend more time practicing and less time walking. The space in the teaching zones are restricted, therefore the distance you have to practise each set of skills are limited. Normally this would require regular walking back to the starting point to begin your cycle of activity again. Learning with boat assistance in open water avoids all this allowing you to spend more time under the kite perfecting your skills.
  • No experience needed! Basic swimming skills.
  • Covers IKO Level 1 & 2 criteria with the aim to make you a confident, safe and independent kitesurfer ready to continue practicing this adrenalin pumping sport by yourself.
  • Within the hours of your course you will learn wind theory, basic kite control, body dragging, self rescue, water relaunch and the waterstart. This is the most realistic and safest way to gain your kitesurfing independence.
  • Your second and third lessons are taught from the boat in open water with our qualified IKO instructors and our experienced, certified boat handler.
  • To help boost your progression this course includes 2 hours full kite equipment rental after successful completion of your course worth 40€.
