How kitesurfing works
While kitesurfing is often classed as an extreme sport, once you have learned how to safely manage
the kite YOU are in complete control. If you want to push the limits, learn how to boost huge jumps, pull

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.
Once the theory and safety side has been explained on land, with initial practicing of
controlling a small flying kite, you progress to body dragging. This is initially done with
Student and Instructor attached by means of a leash.
When the student is “solo” the instructor accompanies
the student on a jet ski. This not only means the student does not have to worry about drifting downwind, which is a
