Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is one of the fastest growing water sports in the world. It’s fast, fun and suitable for people of all ages. You should be a competent swimmer and be willing to learn about the elements to become proficient and safe.
When you see kiter’s doing their thing it looks almost effortless, but a lot of work has gone into those skills. Even if you’re an experienced surfer, wakeboarder or sailor, the basics of kite flying will need to be learnt and to do this the best way is to get a trainer kite and put some hrs into flying it.
Learning to kite the safe way is an important part of our teaching process, we aim to coach our students to become safe, independent and competent riders after completing our beginners program. Our instructors are IKO accredited and follow a tried and tested lesson plan suited to the individuals needs.
Learning kite control on the land is just as important as on the water so our lesson’s will cover absolutely everything you need to know to be safe and have fun!
Our mission is to give you all the skills to get you having fun as fast as possible and be a safe kiter so you can enjoy the sport for years to come.
We can offer beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons. Pricing is the same for all levels.
Sometimes it’s nice to be treated as #1! Be a little selfish and lock in one of our guys to be your dedicated instructor for each lesson. To give you an idea, the average student will take 3-5 lessons to be self-sufficient and safe.
New for the 2018 season is the ‘Zero 2 Hero’ kitesurfing course. Split into several levels, over the duration of a few days, this course offers you best value for money by learning in small groups of two until the last lesson which is One on 1, without cutting any corners on instruction. You will learn at a steady rate and reach achievable goals. At the end of the course you will be ready to enter the wilds with a kite and be self-sufficient and safe. Learning in a group environment will also allow you to meet future kite buddies.
Wind based sports is a weather dependent sport. Basically you need a little wind, ideal is 10 to 12 knots. Please make sure you call your allocated instructor either the day before or on the actual day of your course to check that your lessons are going ahead. In the event of rain we will cancel the lesson to be continued at a later date.
