A UNIQUE, COMPLETE IKO KITESURFING COURSE IN CYPRUS. ARE YOU READY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH A NEW SPORT?

This is by far our most popular kitesurfing course. By choosing the IKO Discovery & Intermediate course, our certified instructors will take you, step by step, through all the stages needed to be able to practise kitesurfing on your own. The first part of this complete IKO kitesurfing course includes safety rules and skills practise on land before going into the water. Slowly but steady you will experience the full potential of the wind. Setting up the kitesurf equipment, control the kite, body drag and practising the water start are just a few of the stages you will follow with your instructor. This theoretical and practical experience will lead you to become proficient enough to begin practising and riding on your own.
