Its content is very similar to the curriculum of organizations like the German VDWS or the British BKSA. Therefore Module A is a very similar course as other kitesurfing schools all over the world offer it, just a bit more elaborate and sophisticated, because we need to get you ready for the next course module. Kitesurfing Course Module A takes 12h lessons within 3 days. You will get on the board, riding your first meters. Only during this stage of your learning career, it is advisable to go to Langebaan lagoon, where you can stand in waist deep water. Prerequisite to enroll on Course Module A You need to be able to swim and have at least an average fitness level. Duration: 3 wind days with 4 lesson hours per day, so 12 lesson hours in total (be careful, other schools often only do 8 or 10h at the expense of important topics such as ‘safety’). The goal of Course Module A: Know the basic theory. Able to launch and land the kite. Perform a self-rescue. Body drag, downwind and upwind. Able to water-start and ride for a few meters, into both directions. Equipment: All equipment and materials are included in kitesurfing beginners course module A. Group size: Private instruction (1:1) or small two-students group (1:2). Please note: Larger student group sizes, as some other schools do it, do not lead to any good results. Location: We often drive to Langebaan lagoon for course module A, where you can stand in waist deep water, which is of advantage at this stage of your learning. Please note: After course module A Langebaan is not a good place for learning any more. To learn fast thereafter, you need the Downwind Method as described below at Course Module C. You can do the Downwind Method only with our specifically qualified instructors and in a few places in the world, and Cape Town is one of these.
