Which formula is most suitable for me?

 

Private or semi-private lessons? One-on-one lessons or a 12-hour package? Updates or complete lessons for beginners? Each person has different needs and there will be a learning formula that is right for you, depending on your level and learning preferences.     learning.

 

Private lessons guarantee the fastest progression in the sport. Choosing an instructor just for you and a kite for you at all times will allow you to hone your skills and get to the point of riding as quickly as possible.

 

Semi-private classes are also a great formula. You will still have plenty of time with the kite and in fact by switching the kite between students every 10 minutes you will have a little time to rest, analyze from an outside perspective what is going on and mature the knowledge you are retrieving. step by step. It's also a lot of fun to share your kitesurfing journey with someone you care about. So why not dive into a semi-private course?

 

One-on-one lessons are suitable for riders who are unsure whether or not kitesurfing is for them, or for people who already ride a bike but want a smooth introduction to the place or just want to boost their confidence by having an instructor once again.

 

The packages are for the serious. If you're looking to really progress and take kitesurfing seriously then packages are the way to go. Not only do they mean you'll get a lower price, they'll take you as far as possible, as a series of lessons combined in a specific time window represents a better chance of connecting the dots and having a cohesive and coherent learning process.

How long do I need before I can Kitesurf by myself?

 

It is one of the most frequently asked and difficult questions to answer. Each practitioner has their own learning rhythm, which must always be respected. Typically, between 8 and 12 hours of class, students should be able to practice on their own and take responsibility for their own evolution. Our main focus is to safely induce the evolution of students so that they can practice independently and as quickly as possible. You can benefit from price reductions inducing multi-hour packages. We all want to get to the point of riding as fast as possible, but we actually need to acquire a specific skill set before we get to that stage. Before we can get on the board, we need to be fully able to:

  - Prepare the equipment properly so that we do not have to depend on anyone else to go ahead;

  - Analyze a point and see if the conditions are suitable or not at a given time;

  - To control a kite almost perfectly! Because, to aspire to fly the board, probably the most important skill is to control the kite as naturally as possible;

  - To perform a proper body drag. Body drag lets you grab the board when you lose it in the water (happens all the time, even for experienced riders), but more importantly, it lets you reach the nearest shore regardless if you need to;

    - Know how to use the equipment's safety mechanisms. Did you know that there are specific procedures, routines and equipment that should be activated if things don't go well? It is mandatory that someone knows how to apply them before they are ready to kite on their own.

 

Whatever stage you are at, we will guide you through your development!
