Lessons

It usually takes around 3-4 days to learn the basics of kitesurfing and ride your first few meters. In the beginning, you'll get acquainted with wind theory and the first moves in kite-school. Then our instructor will show you kite equipment and how to prepare the equipment for use.

Kiteboarding is an extreme sport so it's important to conduct thorough safety training. After these stages you'll be ready for your first kite launch, where you'll feel the real power of kitesurfing & immediately understand why it's so much fun!
