We start with 1 hour of getting the basics in place; this entails setup of your equipment, safety features you will utilize and updating your kite flying skills with a small 2 m trainer kite. When the instructor feels you are ready we can then head to the water. Here we will teach you to properly fly the inflatable kite, body drag at top speed down wind and learn how to re-launch with ease if you crash your kite in the water. On day one you will be comfortable flying the kite, know what to do in any situation of distress and re-launch with ease.
Completely dedicated to the board lesson; we travel 3 km to a location called Sharkbay situated in the lagoon and adjacent to the national park. The conditions here are perfect for the board lesson with warm shallow water allowing the instructor to be right next to you during the entire lesson. We will spend the full 4 hours at Sharkbay with a rest break 2 hours into the lesson. Be sure to bring snacks and drinks to keep yourself energized through the session. At the end of the lesson will we return to Kite Lab HQ where you will receive your IKO certificate!
We look forward to exceeding your expectations on what you thought was possible and becoming another completely satisfied Kite Lab Hero!
