If you have made the decision to give the sport a go, then we recommend a minimum of 3 days training to get you to the stage of ‘Kitesurf independence’. There is a strong emphasis on this with the 3 day course and in line with the IKO (International Kitesurf Organisation) we believe that it is the minimum requirement for learning to kitesurf.

It is by far the most popular course we run and gets the best results out of our students.
We base the course on a syllabus designed and regulated by the IKO. The outline of the course is as follows:

• Equipment Set-up
• Learning the ‘wind window’, and how to navigate your kite safely around it.
• Safety and site assessment
• Board recovery, body dragging up and down wind.
• Science of weather patterns, wind and tides.
• Water starting on the board.
• How to keep riding, maintain power and power management.
• Kite re-launch
• Self rescue techniques
• Kite maintenance
• Intro to upwind riding
