Starter and Refresher Courses

  • Title
  • Title

The Starter/Refresher courses are designed to teach you the fundamentals of kitesurfing.
After a short theory session, which includes safety rules and guidelines, you will quickly move on to practical handling and feeling the power from a kite; first on the beach, and then on the water. This will help you learn how to move the kite correctly and how to react in different situations.

Safety is our priority, which is why we use the buddy system when teaching beginners and 'refreshers'. This means working together in groups of four students with two kites per instructor.

Having a 'buddy' who is always with you means that safety is assured.
It also means you get the opportunity to take a quick break and learn from the mistakes (or success) of your partner. While you are taking a break and watching your 'buddy', the instructor will be able to talk you through what your partner is doing and how to improve so that when it's your turn with the kite you'll be able to focus entirely on improving!

These are the different options:

  • 6 hours Taster Course
  • 10 hours Beginner Course
  • 6 hours Refresher Course
