Children’s Course: Kitesurfing discovery /3hrs

We offer a Beginners Introduction Kitesurfing Lesson for children who want to have a taste of this amazing sport before continuing with the full course. This Intro Lesson is perfect way to discover kitesurfing for children.

This kitesurfing lesson for children starts with the focus on flying the kite. First they will practice on the beach and later in the water. On the beach we will teach them the following: setting up the kite, the power of the kite, reaction of the kite, theory, landing and launching. We have several helpful and fun exercises to get the necessary control over the kite. After that we will go into the water with the big inflatable kite where your children will practice to steer. We will also learn them about controlling the kite, safety releases and body dragging. After 3 hours they will get a pretty good idea what kitesurfing is about and get the chance to decide if they want to continue with the next 6 hours. Optional they will share the kite with the other children students.

If they like it so far then we motivate you to go on and really learn them to ride! Check our full beginners kite course and give them 6 more hours to get them acquainted, safe and motivated.
