Kitesurfing IMPROVER lesson 3hrs

(Water based)

Overview

This is stage 2 of our new "BITE SIZE" Learn to Kitesurf program

The course is designed to work with 2 students working as a pair sharing 1 set of equipment. This has proved to be a highly successful method of learning as you can pick up so much from watching another person at a similar level to yourself. Additionally you get a break while the other person is practicing, allowing you time to digest the skills you have just practiced.

Don't worry if you can't persuade anyone to come along with you though, as the bookings are open to everyone so there's every chance someone else will be learning with you making it a great way to meet like minded people.

 

Length of the IMPROVER session

3 Hours

NOTE - If you happen to be the only person booked on your lesson we will reduce the time by 1 hour

 

Skills covered in the IMPROVER session

Is this the right choice for me?

Kitesurfing PRIVATE Lesson 2hrs

Overview

This is for many the best way to progress, as often all you need to get to a higher level are a few pointers from someone trained to observe technique!

 

Length of the PRIVATE session

2 Hours

Extra time may be available on the day so please ask when you arrive.

 

Skills covered in the PRIVATE session

During your 1 to 1 private kitesurf lesson your Instructor will begin by discussing your current experience and goals. You will then do a spot assessment together with your Instructor before setting up the equipment. Once in the water you will be able to demonstrate your current skill level and from there your Instructor will explain and demonstrate the skills that are needed to enable your progression.

 

Bringing your own equipment

You can choose to use your own or the schools equipment. If you already have your own kitesurf equipment, we always recommend bringing it along as we can check that is it suitable and more importantly, safe to use. If it is not suitable for any reason then we can provide all necessary items included at no extra cost.

 

Is this the right choice for me?

If you have already covered the basics, need help to get on the board, are struggling to get up wind, fancy learning or improving your tricks or simply need a refresher or confidence boost then this the best choice for you.
