Taster Courses

There is no shortcut in learning but if you are just after a bit of a taster to see if the sport is for you, then our Kitesurf Taster is a great place to start!

Kitesurf Taster (For 2 people)

Lesson Information

The emphasis is on getting you out there with a kite in your hands and experiencing the best bits of the sport in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. We will quickly show you how to rig your kite and how the safety systems work and then get the kite off the ground and in your hands. You will experience the true power of the kites and depending on how you progress you may even have your first try at getting up on the board!

This course makes a great and unique gift for the wannabe kitesurfer in your life. It’s also a great way to see whether the sport is something you might like to take up before committing to lots of lessons.

It’s important to note that you will need further lessons before going out alone.

Beginner Courses

For beginners with minimal experience who want to become independent riders we recommend a minimum of 5 lessons over multiple days.

For those with little or no kite flying experience we recommend starting with our Introduction to Kitesports which teaches you the basics. Practicing everything you’ve learnt after your course on a small land-based trainer kite will give you a huge head start for future lessons.

After completing our intro course, we then recommend our Kitesurf Beginner Course which teaches you all the basics including how to launch, land, control the power, body dragging, and getting yourself out of trouble if it all goes wrong. This is the 1st step in becoming an independent kiteboarder.

Introduction to Kitesports

Lesson Information

This practical land based course is all about learning to fly a kite and is a great intro to kitesports. We recommend completing this course first, if you want to learn to kitesurf, it’ll give you a real head start on the rest of your lessons. You will be using a variety of small but powerful 2-3m kitesurf trainer kites and learn basic control.

Topics covered include choosing a safe location, power kite flying, kite set up, & learning all about the wind.

We definitely also recommend buying a trainer kite, either before or after this intro as after-all, practice makes perfect!

This is the first step in becoming an independent kiteboarder.

Improver Courses

After completing one of our intro courses you are then ready for one of our Improver Lessons which builds on the knowledge gained from your first lesson and teaches you advanced body dragging techniques. Then as soon as you are ready for it, introduction to the board and your very first ride. It’s likely that you will need to book several of these Improver Courses before going out alone.

If you have had lessons before and are looking at refining your technique, then we recommend jumping straight on to this course.

Kitesurfer Improver (Private)

Lesson Information

Our private 2 or 3 hour Improver courses are completely bespoke and built around your current level and needs.

Whether that’s improving the basics such as kite control and body dragging or getting the board on your feet and nailing those first rides! For those that are already up and riding we can work on improving overall technique such as riding upwind, turning and even learning to jump!

Although we understand that some people learn much faster than others it’s important that even those that pick things up quickly book several of these sessions before going out and practicing alone.

Kitesurfer Improver (Group)

Lesson Information

This course is identical to the Private Improver Course but is run on a group rather than a private basis.

We’d recommend this for friends and family wanting to learn together or for those that just want to maximise their time out on the water and perhaps who learn best by being in a group and observing others.

It’s important to note that its normal to have 1- kite shared between the group. If both all students are doing well though and conditions allow then we will always try and get you on your own kite wherever possible. In the event that you book on to this group course and you are the only person booked then we will automatically condense this to a 2hr private course in line with our standard rates.
