The Lesson


  • Private 2 hour session with an IKO certified instructor: €220
  • Kite equipment rental available from the Kahuna Centre:
  • 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.
  • With the hours dedicated to this course, we can guarantee you progression will accelerate with the use of the open water freedom.


  • The school is updated with new equipment every year – we are currently using 2019/20 RRD Kites and boards which are at the top of the brand league in their innovative design and safety features.
  • All safety equipment – helmets, wetsuits, buoyancy aid are provided by the school.
  • We use wireless, waterproof radio equipped helmets to give you constant guidance even in the water.
  • We can assist you in your first purchase of complete kitesurfing package at great prices.
  • During the lessons we provide you with all the necessary equipment: kite, board, harness, flotation vest and a helmet complete with waterproof walkie-talkie so your instructor can guide you while you are practicing in the water.
