OUR KITE SCHOOL AND THE FIRST 3 HOURS
From the beginning of your kitesurfing lessons you will see how the progression in your learning can happen really fast. For our practices we use a special type of kites which fly even in minimum wind conditions and greatly facilitate your progression, eliminating in turn any possibility of accident.
Through our kitesurfing lessons we will achieve progressively greater control of the kite at the same time as we go through kites of different size and level of difficulty. In the next step of our progression will begin the body drag practices, positioning on the kiteboard and start practicing the technique of waterstart.
On the last step of our kitesurfing lessons we waterstart and enjoy our first kitesurfing rides. Until the conclusion of our kite lessons we will receive monitored practice and rehearsal of every detail learned until we are able to ride efficiently.
This process can take between one and three days of duration.
