This is where we start. If you're super keen to start learning the amazing sport of kiteboarding, get yourself booked in for your first lesson.
With this lesson, we start off with a small, two line trainer kite on the beach, learning the art of kite flying and how we generate power using a kite. We then run through the full setup of an inflatable kiteboarding kite. Once you have proven proficient in the safety systems of the kite, we take to the water where we teach you your basic flying skills, how to relaunch your kite when it crashes and most importantly, how to self rescue yourself in the event of an accident.
You are now ready to use the kite to propel yourself through the water; the most fun you can have till you put the board on. We will teach you how to body drag downwind, crosswind and upwind - an important skill to learn to retrieve your lost board. Finally finish it off with how to do an emergency pack down in deep water.
By now, most people are ready for the board!! In this lesson we will teach you specific skills for getting up on the board, safely and in control. Once you're getting the hang of that, we'll teach you edging techniques and how to ride upwind.
Depending on how you progress, the sky is the limit for this lesson. Some students may only just look at board starts, while others may be riding in one, or both, directions with some degree of control.
