What’s included in the Kitesurfing Camp:
What’s not included:
The only thing your instructor will expect from you is that you know how to swim, but of course, being in good shape helps. Strength isn’t a necessary component to successful kiteboarding; it’s all about the technique, which is why it’s the perfect sport to take lessons as a beginner.
If you’re new to kiting, lessons will benefit you immensely. Technically, all you need to know to kiteboard is how to swim and how to stand on the board, but it’s much more doable if an instructor teaches you about the weather conditions, selecting a proper launch site and gear. An instructor will make sure you’re safe while you get the hang of it, and will teach you the skills needed to progress quickly and get you out there on your own in no time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Wetsuit and booties can be rented for an additional fee. Let us know if you need this gear as it is mandatory equipment for the lessons.
Kiteboarding requires a combination of patience and motivation. You actually need to learn two sports: board riding and kite flying, so give yourself plenty of time to do it properly. All students progress through lessons at their own pace, but a three-day beginner clinic should have you seeing massive improvement in your abilities.
Some students require an additional lesson or two to work on their upwind skills, but the basics are usually mastered after three days on the water. If you’re looking to become an independent rider, the five-day clinic is your best value. You’ll learn more advanced techniques and be confident to hit the waves on your own by the time the clinic ends.
