Kiteschool

Mallorca kite school was created as a consequence of the compulsory legal requisites regarding our primary initiative, which was to create a non profit kitesurfing club which could provide support and help to the numerous kiters that had accessed to the sport without the necessary background and preparation to guarantee a safe practice.

It is known that kitesurfing is a extreme sport which is not quite free of some amount or degree of risk. ASOCIACION APRENDE A NAVEGAR was our first project and its goal was to avoid to kiters and beginners in Mallorca the possibility to get hurted during their practices, as well as to hurt others, which definitely, as it has been proved in other kite destinations, leading to bans and prohibitions.

LEGALIZE OUR KITESCHOOL

The legalization and inscription of our kite club in the Register of non profit associations of the  GOVERN DE LES ILLES BALEARS  in order to gain legal access to the beach, to proceed with our practices, took place in the year 2009.  We were authorized by Coast and Marine authorities to the creation of a legalized kite school in which, when necessary, our kite club members could improve their skills or start their kitesurfing tuition.

The next step was our inscription in the register of Nautic Schools of the Balearic Government – General Directorate of Ports and Airports, in where our kite school conformed the last step of the legal framework that would allow our objectives: Teach kitesurfing through the less cost possible thanks to our non profit kite club ASOCIACION APRENDE A NAVEGAR.

 

WHAT IS KITESURFING

Kitesurfing is a wind powered water sport using  a traction kite,  a control bar with lines and a harness attached to your body to generate the pull needed to propel a rider across the water on a small kiteboard.

The shallow calm waters found in Pollensa Bay are perfect to learn kitesurfing with confidence.   In deeper and wavy waters it becomes much harder to learn and get control of the kite, also to position on the kiteboard and start our first rides.

Only the beach it is considered a restricted area, tht is, where the birds can be, on the sand and ground areas, not the water. Birds are not on the sea but on the ground.

Once you are into the water, there are no kitesurfing restrictions, beside the compulsory 200 meters distance from the beach which is reserved to swimmers, as the Spanish Law of Coast declares; just the access to the water through the beach it’s regulated but we should get back to the beach only through the authorized areas -buoy channel-.

In any case, if you are a kitesurfer planning to visit Mallorca and if in doubt, better contact us first, for advice.
