Beginners course

No experience in kitesurfing?
These courses are for you  !

The initiation courses of 1 to 5 days will allow you to discover kitesurfing, learn the basics and progress according to your goals. We arrange the lessons according to the time you have and taking into account your physical abilities and personal motivations. You will evolve on an ideal and superb spot, in complete safety, supervised by a professional and passionate team.

The beginner’s course: 1 or 2 days

Learn the basics practicing in a fun way:

  • The kite, essential element
  • equipment and setup, flying the kite, launching, landing…
  • Security basics
  • Body dragging, moving with the kite in the water
  • The board with the simulator (mechanism on the boat which simulates the kite’s traction)
  • Waterstart, slides on both sides…
1 or 2 days don’t usually allow you to be autonomous. However the 4 or 5 days course does aim for this goal.
This particular course aims for a kitesurf dicovery
