Learning kitesurfing – Should I take lesson ?Short answer: Yes!
Lessons are extremely important. Kitesurfing is a safe sport only if you have instruction from a professionally recognised school such as us.
We cannot stress highly enough how important it is to be fully competent with the safety aspects of the sport prior to becoming an independent kitesurfer.
During the course we thoroughly cover all safety measures to ensure not only the safety of yourself but also those around you. You will learn the appropriate weather conditions, wind speed and direction, safety checks prior to launching, launching safely through to relaunch in the water, quick release and self rescue procedures in times of trouble and how to turn your kite into a raft/sail should the wind drop.
In addition, we will teach you all the basic techniques of how to kitesurf and of course have a wicked time! Most students are able to get up on their board after completing a two day course with a certified kitesurfing instructor, and with a bit of practice you can do your first jump after a few weeks! Once you get more experienced you can catch some huge air. The pros can easily jump 10 meters or even higher!!
