Beginner kitesurf course

The kitesurfing beginner course is addressed to anyone who wants to take up this exciting sport. It is addressed to anyone and being healthy and in good physical condition as well as having good confidence in the water are the only prerequisites.

Our school works only with certified, experienced, and multilingual instructors. The students are equipped with radio helmets to communicate with the instructor even remotely and in real time.

The kitesurf course for beginners is usually split into 3-4 days and is divided into the following phases:

• Kite flying theory and safety system
• Onshore kite trainer practice (with a small kite)
• Onshore and offshore kite trainer practice
• Re-launch kite techniques

• Self rescue
• Body drag (navigation with kite without board)
• water start with board
• First water navigation with the board

Read detailed information on the phases of the course

  • During the course you will learn the flying techniques using a training kite at first (trainer), moving on to practice with the full–kite then. Also you will learn the self rescue techniques, the kite re-launching as well as the body drag and and the on the wind body drag techniques.
  • The second part of the course is specifically based on the starting manouvres using the board itself first, until our rookie will be finally able to make his first starting manouvres on his own. At this stage you’ll be ready to kitesurfing in autonomy and what we strongly recommend is to keep on practicing over and over again! We also offer a service of assisted rental post course free of charge.

BEGINNER COURSE IN PAIR

In the case that you are either are a couple of friends or a couple, you can choose to attend the beginner course taking up lessons, either individually or in pairs of two students per instructor. By choosing the course in a pair you can save money on the  price of the course; the students will be able to alternate (or interchange) during the practice of the sport itself, which will be very useful in order to spot possible mistakes by watching the performance of the other person who you’re having the lesson with.

  • Individual lessons in a pair (1 instructor per 2 rookies) € 35 for hour per person

TAKE LESSONS FROM THE BOAT

Taking lessons from the boat gives you the opportunity of carrying out lessons without interruption and without the need of stopping at the end of the teaching area and walk upwind, as the traditional courses require. It is therefore possible to practice stance management, riding non-stop for the entire duration of the lesson, always followed by the instructor. The on-boat instructor is responsible for communicating instructions to the student using the radio helmet supplied. This type of lesson is held in an area immediately surrounding the spot of Punta Trettu. Students are taken to this area and returned to shore by boat.

Price € 80 / hour

  • The cost of the course includes lessons and the usage of the equipment you need.
  • All the trainees will be given an on-the-water radio communication device and an impact jacket.
  • All lessons are always to be payed by the end of the day, counting the effective (actual) time.
  • The course and the single lessons with the usage of the rookie’s own equipment sees the 10% of discount.

Our school works only with IKO & FIV certified, experienced, and multilingual instructors.

The lessons can be conducted in the following languages:

  • it Italian
  • en English
  • German
  • fr French
  • Polonia – Bandiera Polaco
  • es Spanish

We all have a different learning-time, which depends on various factors such as: the age and the sports we’ve been practicing so far, our physical, psychological and athletic conditions. Generally, our IKO and FIV certified instructors can teach the rookie, who is totally unfamiliar with either any sailing or with board sports, in about 8/10 hours of lessons guiding him all the way through his first navigation maneuvers until finally doing kitesurfing in total autonomy. People who are already familiar with sports such as snowboarding, windsurfing, wake-boarding or skateboarding (which all have a lateral walk instead of a frontal one ) will definitely have an advantage and 6 hours of lessons could be enough in order to start navigating.

As professional instructors, our main goal is to teach you kitesurfing the best way and in order to make this happen, we always do our best!! We know that the principal wannabes’s aim is to be able to navigate with their own kite as soon as possible. The School’s goal is to form brand new Kiters respecting their own learning time, constantly attempting to reach the preset goal along with our rookies in the right amount of time.

The natural conditions of the spot such as the waveless sea, the ground swell and the flat water make your learning more rapid and safe, away from the swimmers. It is also a reliable ground to play on either practicing with the kite or with the board, letting you play with the starting maneuvers in total tranquillity giving you time to rest without struggling in the deep water.

  • We discourage people from taking up kitesurfing on their own as in this sport is impossible to have a shot at it. If the kite is manipulated with no experience, it can be extremely dangerous for you first and for all the people around you and the equipment as well.
  • We also discourage you from attending any type of courses in which you are offered only 1 instructor for more then 2 rookies (as it is required from the IKO regulations).
