    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Our kite surfing lessons are separated into the following 4 categories, depending on your skill level you will be placed into one of the following:

    GROUND CONTROL
    In this first 2 hour lesson we teach you the basics of kiteboarding including safety, equipment set-up, wind effects, kite control and launching and landing your kite on the beach.

    WATER TIME
    For this lesson you need to be able to comfortably control the kite and launch and land. We will get you in the water bodydragging and take you right through to starting to put the board on your feet. You'll enjoy your first true taste of kiteboarding in getting up and sailing.

    BOARD RIDE
    You need to have already started to try getting up on the board before commencing this lesson. We focus on board skills for this 2 hours and hope to have you up and riding at the end of this level.

    GETTING LIT
    By now you should be up and riding on the board and just need to focus on some of the finer techniques such as riding upwind, switching directions and ensuring your stance is correct. In most cases we will get you to perform a small jump by the end of this level.

    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 which 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. The price quoted is for one two hour lesson.
