Safety is the Foundation of Everything

Our courses are carefully designed to ensure effective learning. We keep the groups small enough so that each participant has the opportunity to receive sufficient personal instruction. There are at most 1-2 students per instructor, except for the theory portion.

Our courses are designed so that after completing the course, you can start practicing independently and safely.

The instruction is divided into multiple days depending on the course:

  • The Basic Course is 2 days, including Theory and Technique days.
  • The Basic Course+ is 3 days, including Theory, Technique, and Technique+ days.
  • The Basic Course++ is 4 days, including Theory, Technique, Technique+, and Technique++ days.

It's Important to Consider Wind Limits During Our Courses!

To ensure that the course can be completed safely and you, as a student, get the best possible benefit, our courses have specific wind limits. The course cannot be held if the wind is below 6 m/s in summer or below 5 m/s in winter (as an inexperienced person cannot keep the kite properly in the air) or above 10 m/s (safety limit).

In such cases, we will arrange a new suitable date with the student.

Our Courses Include



The courses always begin with an approximately 3-hour online theory session. During the theory course, you will learn the essential basics to start kitesurfing.


The following step is the Technique+ day, which also lasts about 5 hours. In this session, you will learn to control a power-adjustable kite even better and ride your first meters on water or snow after learning the launch technique.


Next, we move on to the first Technique day of the course, which lasts about 5 hours, depending on weather conditions. After this session, you will master kite handling on land and/or water.


In the final part of the course, lasting about 5 hours, we focus on fine-tuning your kite handling skills and board technique. At the end of the course, we can also tailor the instruction to individual students’ needs and assist, for example, with acquiring your first personal equipment.
