1 day kite surfing course – the discovery

This day is all about discovering kitesurfing. We start with a piece of theory about the wind, kite surfing location and safety systems. Then we fly with the trainer kite (small 2-line kite). Once these skills are mastered, it is time for the big (4-line) kite. We end the day bodydragging through the water.

Once you have booked a group or duo lesson on your own but the group is not yet complete, you will be put on a waiting list.

You don’t want to wait for that and get on the water as quickly as possible?

Then quickly find a buddy with whom you can schedule the kite surfing course.

F.A.Q.

Our answers to frequently asked questions

how many hours of lesson do I need?

This differs per person, but the average student needs between 9 and 12 hours of kitesurf lessons to be able to go on the water independently. This means that you can ride left and right in a safe way and implement a controlled stop.

Is it hard to get the hang of kitesurfing?

Kitesurfing is an extreme sport and is difficult in the beginning, but under the guidance of our enthusiastic instructors your learning curve is fast and above all safe.

Is kitesurfing dangerous?

Kitesurfing is an extreme sport. That is why it is important that you learn the sport under the guidance of certified instructors. Never try to learn in by yourself and never go on the water on your own.

Our instructors ensure that you learn kitesurfing in a safe way with all necessary safety systems.

Do you need to be strong to be able to kitesurf?

Most people think that you have to be horribly strong to control the kite. However, this is not so bad. The kite is connected to your harness, this means that you can control the kite with two fingers 😊

To be eligible for kitesurfing lessons you must be at least 8 years and a body weight of 33 kg.

I have knee / back / arm complaints, can I learn to kitesurf?

In most cases this is certainly allowed. Do you still have doubts? Then it is advisable to first seek expert advice.

Not too hard 😉, but not too soft either. The minimum wind to learn kite surfing is 10 knots (3 beaufort). The maximum wind to learn kite surfing is 30 knots (7 beaufort).

What if there is no wind?

If the wind is not good enough for kitesurfing, we will schedule another appointment. The evening before your lesson you will receive a message from us whether your lesson will have a green light, which means there is enough wind.
