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 can we then head to the water. Here we will teach you to properly fly the inflatable kite, body drag and learn how to re-launch with ease if you crash your kite in the water. On day one you should be comfortable flying the kite, know what to do in any situation of distress and re-launch with ease. Please note if you are not comfortable or in control of flying kite on day one will we continue with the necessary training before we can proceed to board starts.
Completely dedicated to the board lesson; after mastering kite flying will you now be ready for your first board starts.
Day two will introduce you to the real feeling of gliding on the water and the the true nature of kitesurfing, all basics and training of day one will now be utilized to attempt your first water-starts.
Wish we could tell you this will be easy but nothing this amazing can be easy, expect plenty of face plants and sea water down your gullet.
Activities we recommend to practice before kite lessons, trainer kite flying or wake boarding.
NB. You will need to be able to swim to attend lessons.
