Kitesurfing Rental & Courses in Makkum, Netherlands
Do you think you can kite, and did you finish your progression card of the Royal Dutch Watersport Assocation (level 5) or the VDWS Licence card (level 4)? Then you are able to rent and or test kitesurfmaterial. Practice independently, under supervision of one of our instructors. That's why we like to call it 'guided kiting'. ADVANCE COURSES The advanced course for 1-4 students on 1 instructor (and max 2 students with 1 kite) is a continuation of the beginner course, and can only be done with a legitimate progress card (Royal Dutch Watersport Association or VDWS). On the card is visible that the student masters the basics. As with all our courses, the duration of the lessons can be determined by you as the student, and the total amount of upcoming lessons. Every session should have a mininum of 2 hours. There is, however, no maximum. We stop when you are tired, when you want to continue next time, or with any reason what so ever. The most important thing during the advanced course is self-reliance and safety. Furthermore, the focus is on progression, which means that you will practice and learn advanced subjects, such as indipendently building up the kite, down wind bodydrag, relaunching the kite, and particularly waterstart with board. In addition, there are also expert subjects that are part of the program that can be done. For example, relaunching the kite in deep water, kiting up wind, jibing, making transitions, jumping and basic tricks. However, these subject will only be done when the instructor thinks that you are ready for that. It depends how quick you learn. Our lessons are always provided of kite material, wetsuit, harness and progress card.

Date of Birth. 08-04-1990br Function Kitesurf instructorbr Licence: Watersportverbond (KNWV) since 2007 Short story: It was 10 years ago when I first started kitesurfing. It was a windy autumn day (the wind blew around 30 knots) and Marcus (my dad) teached me the first steps with a small Naish X3 kite. By that time I was already sold to the most beautiful sport in the world. I am not saying that my life completely changed since then. However, the sport gave my a positive boost. Whenever I feel or hear the wind, it always gives a little tickle in the stomach. Rain makes me said the sun gives me an aesthetic feeling. I, therefore, prefer to kite in the most perfect conditions. Favourite spots: Kornwerderzand, Le Morne (Mru) and Vieumlste (It) Motto: Strife for happiness. That's the essence of life.
