Flying over the water?

I don’t think there’s anything more satisfying than that.

Everyone remembers the first time they stood up on the board.

It’s magical. It’s addicting.

Step 1 – Kite Control

In the first half hour, you will learn about the wind, how to set-up the kite and learn important safety procedures on the beach. The rest session, you will be learning how to pilot the kite in the water.

Kite control is the bread and butter of kiting. Once you are comfortable and safe, we move on to Step 2.

Step 2 – Body Drags

In this step you will learn more advanced kite control in the water. You will learn how to let the kite pull you in different directions, how to start creating power and learn an important safety procedure called the “self-rescue”. After this step you should have developed the necessary skills to try and ride the board.

Step 3 – Board Riding

Putting it all together! During this step, you will learn the skills required to stand up on the board and get riding. This step is designed to equip you with all the skills you need to practice on your own and go from riding to ripping!
