You just need to bring a towel and a desire to master this amazing sport!
This course is delivered over 3 sessions. The first session is land based and can be done anytime. Sessions 2 and 3 are water based and are tide dependent. Sessions are over 2-3 days (not necessarily consecutive) and are weather dependent.
By the end of the course, you should be an independent kitesurfer able to sustain prolonged rides and ride among others.
Everyone’s progression differs and at no point will you be asked to perform anything beyond your ability.
We will follow the BKSA training scheme which ensures we cover everything you need to know to become a safe and confident independent kitesurfer.
This course will take you to Level 2 Part 4.
The course covers the following levels:
Level 1 Part 1: Basic kite flying skills
Level 1 Part 2: Inflatable kite rigging launching and basic water based flying
Level 1 Part 3: Bring on the power, basic body dragging
Level 1 Part 4: Directional body dragging and self-rescue techniques
Level 2 Part 1: Introduction to boards and board start technique
Level 2 Part 2: First board starts and technique
Level 2 Part 3: First board rides including prolonged power delivery
Level 2 Part 4: Independent Kitesurfing: Riding with others
7.5 hours for the course is based on my extensive experience of how long it takes someone to learn. However, if you learn more quickly I will include extra items. Equally, if your progress takes a bit longer you will need to book extra time to complete the course.
