INDIVIDUAL APPROACH

With our unique teaching method, you learn according to your skill level, knowledge and rhythm. Each student is treated as an individual. The courses are specially taught to give you the best results in the shortest time.

RADIO FOR FAST PROGRESS

We will stay in touch even when you will be able to ride on the water for the first time. Our instructors will be connected with you by walkie-talkie radio. That enables us to give you feedback on your riding while you’re doing it. With years of experience, we discovered that this enables the best and fastest progress.

EASY TO LEARN CONDITIONS

One of the biggest misconceptions about kitesurfing is that it is difficult to learn. With the right teaching technique and at the right location and conditions a lot of beginners can learn to ride in 2-3 days. 

This sport is suitable for everyone. Adults and children can learn to kitesurf with the right equipment. When taking a kiteboarding lesson it is important to learn in the right conditions, or you are going to waste valuable lessons time on a “harder to learn” experience.

Trial hour

We offer one-hour kitesurfing trial lesson. Although everyone can learn how to kitesurf, some beginners want to have a test run of the feeling of having a kite strapped on to your body. This is why we offer a one hour trial day course.

Prices

For 1-hour trial lesson the price for 2 or more participant is 45€/person

What will you learn

In one hour we can teach you all the basic elements, safety requirements and offer you the chance to fly a kite. 

If you fall in love with kitesurfing during your trial course and want to do the full beginner course, we won’t charge you for both, but reduce the amount of the course for the amount you paid for the trial.
