See below for our lesson breakdown and full courses. Lesson 1 - Kitesurfing intro This lesson is for people who have never flown a kite before and for those who have some past experience but may need a recap on the basics. During this lesson we will teach you everything about the wind, safety systems, how the kites fly and how to fly them with proper control. Your instructor will explain the application of all skills learned to prepare you for lesson two. Your lesson will be a combination of theory and practical kite flying from the beach or shallow water. Lesson 2 - Body dragging & water starts Once you've achieved good basic kite control in lesson one you'll be ready to move into deeper water to begin 'body dragging' which is maneuvering through the water without a board. This is an essential step where you will learn how to drag downwind, across the wind and upwind practicing board recovery and generating power on demand. Once we're happy with your progress we'll introduce the board and coach you through the waterstart process. This lesson is taught entirely in deep water from a boat using radio helmets allowing your instructor to direct you in real time with the added benefit of addressing any questions you may have. Lesson 3 - Board riding This lesson is for those of you who are comfortable water starting in both directions but still need tuition to extend the length of your rides. In this lesson we will focus on both kite control and board skills while riding with the aim being to increase the duration and comfort levels of your rides with an eventual goal of riding upwind. This lesson will be taught from a boat with radio helmets in order to fine tune and tweak your technique in real time aiding your progression. Lesson 4 - Riding upwind / Independance This lesson is for those who can ride comfortably in both directions but still need that extra push to be confident navigating upwind in order to return to the same spot at the end of every session. In this lesson we will work on your body position and weight distribution in order to achieve and maintain efficient upwind riding. Your instructor will give you achievable targets to aim for on each tack further building your skill level and overall feel for the kite. The ultimate goal for anyone learning to kitesurf is to be able to stay upwind! This lesson will be taught from a boat with radio helmets in order to fine tune and tweak your technique in real time aiding your progression. Intermediate - Advanced This lesson is for independant kitesurfers looking to add some new style and fluidity to their riding. In this lesson we will focus on what you want to learn whether it be a new transition or landing your first back roll. Your instructor will discuss your goals prior to getting on the water and then coach you through the steps to achieve them. Typically setting one skill goal per lesson is realistic in order for you to have time to learn, practice and perfect. This lesson will be taught from a boat with radio helmets in order to fine tune and tweak your technique in real time aiding your progression.
