What will you learn during your 5 day course?
On day 1 of the kitesurfing course you will learn the basics of kitesurfing. We start with a (small) piece of theory, material explanation and safety instructions. Then we get to work with your kite control on land and in the water.
On day 2 of the kitesurfing course we continue with body dragging and relaunching the kite when it falls into the water. The kiteboard is also included to learn to body drag with your kiteboard!
On day 3, the headset comes into play. Let's start with the water start. You then get a little further away from the instructor, so the headset is super handy! By means of powerstrokes you will try to get out of the water and stand on your board.
Now it's time to perfect your water start and start sailing the first parts. On day 4 of the kitesurfing course, we also ensure that you stand on your board with a good posture.
On the last day we will make meters! You will also learn to sail upwind and we will ensure that you can go kitesurfing independently after your course. It is important that you go out on the water safely and responsibly!
We often see that someone books a last private lesson after his 5 day kitesurfing course to top off the course!

This differs per person, but at least you don't learn kitesurfing in 1 lesson! We recommend booking a 3 day course, this can always be converted to a 5 day course. We also offer a combination package of 3 group lessons + 2 private lessons. Experience has shown that this is preferred for most people and works best!
We are of course always dependent on the weather. We always confirm or cancel your lesson 1 day in advance. Usually around 5:00 PM. If the lesson cannot take place, it can be rescheduled immediately via your personal account online.
You can make the booking online. When booking you need to select the (1st) date of kitesurfing lesson in the agenda. After completing the booking you will receive an email with your personal login for your account. You can then schedule the lessons yourself in your account.
We give kitesurfing lessons in Rockanje and 's-Gravenzande. You can book for the location you prefer. Both locations have a different location, so also wind direction. It is therefore possible that we sometimes move your lesson to the other location, but we always discuss this with you!
Yes, of course!
The perfect weather conditions for a 5 day kitesurfing course
Good to know is that we always depend on the weather conditions for your lesson! We therefore confirm 1 day in advance whether the lesson can continue or not. In principle, the lessons start from 12 knots to 30 knots by, but we always look at this on a day-to-day basis. Rain showers, waves and possible thunderstorms always have an influence on this! Do you want to see for yourself whether your lesson might be able to continue, check than our wind finder widget!
You remain motivated to continue by the way of teaching, the lessons are taught with great enthusiasm. Very flexible and thoughtful in terms of planning is also an advantage!
