Intermediate kitesurfing courses

The intermediate courses are addressed to anyone who is keen to improve their run techniques, as well as the freestyle. They allow you to rapidly learn all the navigation maneuvers, to improve the upwind techniques, toe-side, gybe and the jumps in total safety. Generally, for those who have already learnt the first “basic jumps”, this course is more focused on sharpening the hooked – in pop techniques as well as the back roll and front roll. The courses allow you to quickly advance avoiding the possible risks that might occur from self-teaching. You will have a radio helmet, during all the lessons, that gives you the chance to interact in real time with the instructor.

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

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

BASIC JUMP MINI COURSE

How many of you have been trying for awhile to do a good jump reversing the sail? Normally it’s the step that all kiters want to do as soon as possible and often in a self-taught way. This is because obviously jumping is one of the principal attractions of kitesurfing and everybody would like to do it fast and spectacularly. Very often, even if you think that a jump is simple, the learning process is slow and dangerous if approached without adequate background and tips. Because of this The Kite Village offers a package of 3 hours specially made for all of you that want to learn how to jump in complete safety, while having fun and not spending too much time and money. This Mini Course is completely focused on learning this trick specifically. At the end of the three hours, you will be able to fully execute it safely. The jump package is strongly recommended by our school because it gives the student immediate results while enjoying the learning process. Remember that you will have a radio helmet, during all the lessons, that gives you the chance to interact in real time with the istructor.

  • Basic jump mini course with individual lessons (1 instructor per rookie): 3 hours at a cost of 150 Euro.
  • Contingent extra hours – 60€ per person

ROTATIONS MINI COURSE

Normally, all the kiters with more or less experience sooner or later, after learning the tecniques of the base jump, try the first rotations. As like in all the other sports, but especially in Kitesurf, you can try to learn alone but investing a lot more time and going through a lot more dengers and risks compared with a kiter that is helped by a qualified istructor, that will take care and will suggest him during the learning process.

To meet all requirements of the kiters,at The Kite Village Sardegna is proposed a mini course of 3 hours,in wich you will be taught under the expert eye of professional istructors, the tecnique to do back and front rotazions in complete safety.

The 3 hours of course can be carried out in one day depending on your needs and will be studied a learning program that fits perfectly on you. In 3 hours is guaranteed the full learning of the front or back rotations,that you can run in complete safety in almost all the weather conditions. This course in strongly racommended for all the kiters that wants to improve theys freeride skills in a safe and fast way.

Remember that you will be followed by the same istructor from the beginning to the end of the course, and that he will always be in direct contact with you using a Radio helmet that will give you the opportunity to interact and to be corrected in real time and during the execution of the trick.

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).
