Intermediate kitesurfing course is designed for anyone that has some previous kitesurfing experience or has done a kitesurfing course in the past.
BEACH FLYING AND THEORY RECAP
We start the course with an hour recap on the beach. This is dependent on your level, it could be flying one of our special training kites on the beach or running over body drag technique and body position to even simulating water starts for the more advanced. Once this has been completed we head off into the water.
The water is split into two parts.
The first attempt is, again, dependent on your level this could be body dragging or it could be straight onto a board. Either way first the instructor will demonstrate the exercises you need to practice with you holding onto their harness, then you will practice them with the instructor holding onto you until you are capable and safe to be left alone to practice and get comfortable being alone with a kite.
Your second time in the water will be straight with the board. If this is your first time trying the board it will work as before, first the instructor and you, then you and the instructor then you alone.
Course length – 4 hours (1 hour beach lesson + 3 hours water lesson)
Instructor to kite to student ratio 1:1:2 (on water)
Water lesson (3 hours each day):
On the following day you will spend all time improving your riding skills (the board work). This includes easy and safe start from the water as well as being comfortable on the board riding. Next stages of learning are: upwind riding, transitions (changing directions), toe side riding AND JUMPING !!!
