But most of all you are ready for your second kitesurf lesson. Here we will teach you how to independently put on your board and ride your first meters! Yihaa

How does weather & wind influence a kitesurf lesson?

Without wind it is not possible to kitesurf, a kite needs a minimal amount of wind to stay in the air and generate power. On the other hand in case of too much wind kitesurfing may become too unsafe for beginners.

  • Minimum wind: 10 knots (3bft)
  • Maximum wind: 30 knots (6-7bft)

At BLOW Kitesurfschool we always keep the body weight, expertise and level of the student into consideration.

What’s next?

A kitesurf introductory lesson is just the first step in learning how to kitesurf. In our experience it takes about 3 kitesurf lessons before students have mastered the technique to kite from one direction to another.

This does not yet mean that the student has enough skill or confidence to kite independently. It is extremely important that a kitesurfer is able to maintain overview of what is happening on the water whilst kitesurfing. This is the only way you are able to kitesurf safely and take other kite- or windsurfers into consideration. During the 3 and 5 day courses we will focus on creating overview and learning extra skills so you’ll be an independent and confident kitesurfer.

After 3 lessons:

  • Full control over kite
  • Waterstart in both directions
  • Ride on the board (short distances)
3 day kitesurf course

After 5 lessons:

  • Ride on the board for longer distances
  • Ride upwind
  • Independent, confident and safe kitesurfing
