Learn kitesurfing in a safe and fun way! Kitesurf? Skysurf? Skisurf? What is that? Kitesurfing is a water sport that consists of movement over the water on a board while being pulled by a kite, that you have full control over. The feeling of freedom and connection with nature, water and wind is indescribable. You will become addicted to the behavior of the wind, it´s sound and the movement of any moving leaf. This is why it´s one of the fastest growing water sports in the world.
Now, let’s get on to the classes. We have been practicing kitesurfing for more than 15 years, and the most common questions that we are asked are: Is it difficult? How much do classes cost? How much can I rent the gear for? It’s easier than it seems. First, you learn to fly the kite and then you learn to how get on the board. The equipment is only rented if you can show your level. It is an extreme sport and for that reason it is necessary to take a course.
Duration: 8-10 hours. Depending on your level.
Part 1: Flight on land
The first part of the course is on land. In this section you will learn:
