Full description
The beginner course is a complete course taking you from zero to hero. There is very little theory so you will go straight into the water and have fun. Fly a small kite to understand where and how it flies, before you set up a bigger kite and learn the different parts. Learn how the safety elements work so you are safe once in the water. Learn how to control the kite by doing exercises like relaunching the kite, figures of 8 and body dragging.

More body dragging exercises will equip you with perfect control of the kite. This will help you progress fast once you get on the board. Having a very good control of the kite means you will be safe for yourself and for others. Control the kite with 1 hand, body drag upwind to retrieve your board, relaunch and land the kite by yourself.

The best part starts as you bring in the board. Learn how to do the water start and start riding. The feeling of riding on the board is amazing and will be a life changer! By the end of this course you should be able to do short rides to one or both sides. You will then become an independent kiter and be able to learn on your own or take an advanced course for a fast learning curve.

At the end of the course, you will get an internationally recognized certification from IKO (Internationl Kiteboarding Organization)
