The 2-day beginners course is divided into 3-4 steps. Each step builds on the previous one, so no steps can be skipped. Usually step 3 is reached, some make it to level 4.

Step 3: water start & glide

  • Course schedule for advanced learners

Advanced courses

You get on the board and can slide a few meters?
Then book a private course.
In one-to-one lessons we improve your kite control, body posture while driving and the edging of the board. The aim of this course is to walk upwind or return to the starting point. After the private lessons, you can continue practicing with the material for the rest of the day, which is of course included in the price.
