Kitesurfing Lessons

What this all means:
You will have a great time learning to kiteboard in a fun safe environment.  We use premium Starkites, considered the easiest kite to learn on. These kites are forgiving and stable – perfect for learning.  Using this formula we have a tremendous success at creating kitesurfers.
What makes us different:
By combining our kitesurfing lessons with supervision hours, there is no pressure on the kiteboard instructor to pass the student through the levels. You learn at your own pace, and there is nothing you miss. Our instructors have been with us for years, and are certified, experienced and safe.
What you get:
One on one kitesurfing instruction from an experienced IKO certified kiteboard instructor, in a beach front tropical paradise.

We divide learning to kiteboard into 3 steps:

Step 1 – $175

Kiteboarding fundamentals (2h), rigging, flying, safety and the power zone
This is your official introduction to kiteboarding. You start the day with a training kite and learn all about the wind window. When you are ready you move up to a 4 line kite and jump into the water.  Your instructor will explain safety, launching and landing, rigging and all the component of a kitesurfing kite.  They will also teach you about hand signals, right of way and how to use the quick release functions.  After this day you will be able to practice with a training kite on your own.

Step 2 – $175

Just add water (2h): Water re-launching, body dragging, and self rescue IKO level 1
After a quick review of your first kiteboarding step, its into the water with your kite. You begin by body dragging down wind (kiteboarding without a board), and finish being able to go upwind (come back to where you started from). In-between you learn to fly the kite one handed, re-launch the kite from the water, and bring yourself back to land safely (self rescue).  With a little bit of practice you will be certified IKO level 1, and on your way to being a kitesurfer.

Step 3 – $225

Ride the lightning (3h): Water starts on the board IKO level 2
By now you’re setting up the  kitesurfing equipment on your own and you’re keen to get kiteboarding. Your kite instructor walks you through the water start, and you’re off. Words can’t describe the euphoria when you take your first ride. Your next kiteboarding skill is how to recover your kiteboard and try again. By the end of the day, you have the knowledge required to practice kitesurfing on your own.
