RIDE BOTH SIDES

Intermediate Course (3-4 Day/10 hours)

In this complete 10 hours course, we will introduce you to the sport.

You begin the First Leveel of kitesurfing, spending time on land learning the basics of piloting the kite, using the control bar, practicing safety measures, launching/landing the kite, and other important skills. Early on, theory about  technique and security measures. This part will take the time needed until you develop reliable kite control before moving on.

In the second part of your course, you will be in the water piloting the kite! You start by using the kite to pull yourself around – called body dragging – and then finish with learning to water start. Water starting usually takes extra time because you need to put various skills together in order to successfully ride.

In the third part of the course, you will become an independent kiteboarder, working on board riding, turning, and most importantly, how to stay upwind. By this point, what you will need the most is to put your patience into practice.

THIS PACK OF 10 HOURS IS NOT JUST FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LEARN HOW TO KITESURF, YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO PURCHASE IT, IF YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW TO NAVIGATE AND WANT TO LEARN MANEUVERS, RIDE UPWIND, KITESURFING IN WAVES.
