Kiteboarding is the latest extreme sport that is providing an adrenalin rush to anyone who loves the outdoors. This course will take you from setup all the way through to being in the water. Our kite surfing course is run over 3 days with 2.5 hours on the first day, then 2 days of 2 hour sessions.
We will start with the basics of kite surfing including safety, equipment set-up, wind effects, kite control and launching and landing your kite on the beach. We will get you in the water bodydragging on day 1. On day 2 we will get you back in the water bodydragging and when you are comfortable with the kite we will introduce the board and hope to have you up and riding on Day 3. All equipment for the lesson is provided, you just need to come dressed in your swimmers / boardies and wetsuit if you feel the cold to experience the thrill of kiteboarding. We issue an IKO Kiteboarder card once you have reached a certain level. The back of the card marks your progress and status. This is required for subsequent lessons anywhere in the world and if at a later stage you wish to hire equipment. PLEASE NOTE:This experience is available for bookings from November to March ONLY.
Lessons run daily between November and March (summer months) and are 6.5 hours in length. Lessons are conducted generally in the afternoon (weather permitting). Please note that weekends are particularly busy and should be booked at least two weeks in advance.
We teach anyone over 15 who is moderately fit and can swim well. We have equipment to suit most people and can adjust the progress of the lesson to suit each individual.
The price quoted is for 1 person. We can have 2 instructors teaching lessons at any one time. Each instructor can have up to a maximum of 2 people in a lesson per session.
From November to March the weather is fairly consistent and we do normally have sea breezes every afternoon. If there is heavy rain, the lesson will need to be rescheduled and we will call you to arrange another mutually agreeable time.
Please make sure you come in your bathers or boardies and bring a towel and your own wetsuit if you have one (we do have some available to borrow). Please ensure that you are wearing sunscreen during the lesson.
We have been teaching since 1999 so with our experience and fully qualified instructors, you are in safe hands.
