What you're in for?

Like learning to drive, you won’t be zooming down the motorway on your first lesson! 80% of kiteboarding is about kite control, so this ‘taster’ session is designed to give you the initial building blocks needed to master this sport in a fun, progressive and easy-going way.

Our intro lesson is land based, on the beach where you’ll develop solid kite skills at the helm alongside one of our friendly instructors.

We’ll also teach you some fundamentals about the wind and wind window (the area of the sky where the kite is able to fly), as well as the power zones and kite safety.

Using a small trainer kite, we’ll get you practicing a range of techniques and skills to kickstart your addiction, like:

  • self launching
  • safety and de-power systems
  • wind window awareness
  • parking the kite
  • how to make power strokes
  • flying in straight lines
  • kite loops and handle passes

After the session, you can decide if you think this sport might be for you and if you’d like to take some additional lessons. If you’re get hooked just like many people do, checkout our range of kiteboarding lessons.

And if not, no hard feelings, but you’ll have an awesome afternoon, guaranteed!
