Kiteboarding Lessons

Complete beginner package

Our most popular Kiteboarding package for those eager to learn our incredible sport. This package lasts 9 hours divided over 3 or 4 days, you decide the pace. If you choose 3 days, your lessons will last 3 hours/day for 3 days. If you choose 4 days, your first lesson will last 3 hours, and each consecutive lesson will last 2 hours per day over 3 days. On your first day you will begin by flying a small foil trainer kite on land and on your last day you will be getting a taste of those first sweet rides on the board.

Private lessons

If you are not a beginner and have had some Kitesurfing lessons in the past, a Private Lesson will help you progress to the next level. Whether you are beginning to stand up on the board, starting to ride upwind, jumping or wanting to learn to ride a surfboard, tell us what your goals are and we will help you reach them. We use radio helmets and ATV support to maximize your learning and time on the water. If you would like more personal attention on the water, consider a jet-ski supported lesson for an additional $20/hour.

The beauty of Kiteboarding is that it allows us to constantly evolve and learn. The sky is literally the limit!

Day 1: On land kite flying

Learn how to fly a trainer kite. You will learn wind-window theory, two and one handed kite flying, proper hand placement and power strokes. Then we will move on to setting up a real Kitesurfing Kite, a 4 line inflatable kite, practice all the safety systems and learn when to engage each specific safety release. Next you will learn how to fly a 4 line kite on land, using short lines to maintain safety, learn about the importance of bar-pressure, flying the kite two & one handed as well as flying the kite blind. Now you are ready for day two on the water.

Day 2: Water exercises

Time to go into the water. Once you’ve mastered kite control on the beach, now you are ready for water Kiteboarding training. You will learn how to body-drag/surf, a crucial skill that will teach you not only how to control the kite while floating on the water, but eventually how to body-drag upwind, a skill necessary to retrieve your board in case you lose it. You will also learn how to generate power and perform a self rescue (a complete pack down of your equipment) in case of gear failure on the water or the wind shutting off.

Day 3: Board work

Now it’s time to put all the knowledge you’ve learned together and start getting up on the board. You’ll learn the theory necessary to put the board on your feet while flying the kite one handed in the air, maintaining the board on your feet while controlling the kite, power strokes and finally getting up on the board and getting your first sweet rides. Welcome to the wonderful world of Kiteboarding.

If you prefer the 4 day package, all of the above steps will be spread out over the 4 day period.

$99 for One & half hours ($119 for 2 students)

Not sure if kiting is the sport for you? Consider trying our 1.5 hours introductory lesson on the beach. Using a 2 line trainer kite, you’ll safely learn all the necessary kite flying skills that will carry over to flying a 4 line inflatable kite. During the lesson you’ll learn proper hand placement, body alignment relative to the kite’s pull, kite steering, power generation and two & one hand kite flying skills. It’s a really fun and safe way to try kiting and decide whether to take it further.

This package is ideal for both adults and kids from 7 years old.

Hydrofoil Lessons

It’s like riding Champagne powder

Learn how to hover above the water, in complete silence. Foiling has taken over and so many Kiteboarders have learned to Hydrofoil in order to evolve and extend their Kiteboarding season.

Our beginner package is divided over 2 days, 2.5 hours each day.

Keep advancing. Learn to foil down wind, tacking, gybing or whatever you would like to learn, we will help you. 

Day 1: Theory

On your first day, you will learn the theory behind foiling, proper body/feet position, how to safely handle the foil, how to bail/crash, where to correctly position the kite while foiling and how to foil-board drag. Towards the end of your first day, you’ll begin to get up on the board and cruise without much foiling yet.

Day 2: Hovering

On day two, you will start hovering longer above the water, paying more attention to your body and kite position in order to control your ascents and descents.
