Learn to Kite Surf
develop all the basic techniques on the beach: from setting up the harness, wind considerations and controlling the kite, to launching and landing the board safely.
As you progress and build confidence, our qualified practitioners will empower you with the key skill set required to take to the water for some initial ‘body dragging’. Get a feel for the kite without the board, how to control and optimise body position and techniques to retrieve the board when the inevitable wipe-out occurs.
With total in-water support and positive feedback, instructors will be hands-on for your initial attempts, harnessing-in with you to get a feel for both kite and board as a combination, and developing total apparatus control with strength and confidence.
Further follow-up lessons and in-water practice to understand techniques to ‘kite up-wind’ will reinforce skills for the beginner and also help develop water awareness and water sport responsibilities as they share the beach with other users.
