9 Hour beginner package

By the end of this kiteboarding package, you should be able to rent kite equipment as an independent rider.

Lesson 1
The Basics of Kite Control
3 hours

This is the basics of kite control and handling. You will be flying one of the latest Fone kites and you will go through the equipment terminology and setup, the wind effects and wind-window theory. You will learn how to fly your kite, hooked into the harness using the power of the kite in a safe environment, how to use your safety system, launch, and land, and fly the kite with the de-power loop.

Lesson 2
Water Control & Body Drag
3 Hours

The next step brings you into the water. You will learn how to get power from the kite, change direction with your kite in the water, how to re-launch a crashed kite from the water, and how to self-rescue. You will also learn some additional and essential body drag techniques such as upwind body dragging (you will need this skill to retrieve the board after a crash).

Lesson 3
Board Control & Water Start
3 Hours

We set you up on a board and teach you the water start theory: board and body positioning while piloting the kite, diving the kite to enable standing up on the board, and controlling the speed and the direction. This final level covers the remaining topics to make you a totally independent kiteboarder. You will know how to choose a spot, rig your gear, stay safe, and you should be able to ride back and forth from the beach.
