bar system offers state of the art safety features and ease of
use. All students are required to wear a life jacket and helmet.

All students will receive an IKO card showing
the level of ability attained during the course. This card is
essential for renting equipment at all professional kite centres.
While kitesurfing is often classed as an extreme sport once you
have learned how to steer the kite YOU are in control. If you
want to push the limits fine, learn how to boost huge jumps, pull
off “kite-loops" or whatever go ahead. But if you want
to get a rush simply kiting back and forth with smooth turns or
aerial transitions then don’t think twice, go for it! Learning
to kite has never been safer.
Initial body dragging is done with Student
and instructor attached by means of a leash. When the student
is “solo” the instructor is still able to communicate
with the student via radio. In the event the student cannot return
to shore the rescue jet ski is ready to go at a moments.
