Your instructor will teach you the proper set up techniques and get you straight into the water to begin flying your first real kite.

Kiteboarding Session

Second Session

The pace of each lesson is shaped specifically around the individual student’s progress and needs. When the instructor and the student is confident in maneuvering the kite, body dragging and knows how to conduct a “Self Rescue”. We then introduce the board and teach you techniques on how to handle the board and kite in a variety of ways.

Remember you must first become the driver before the rider.

Third Session

Now it’s time for the real deal - water starts. Practice, practice and more practice is now the name of the game.

The instructor will teach you how to get going on the water and introduce new drills to prepare you for what may happen in your sessions to come.
