Lessons are for kiteboarders of any level, from beginner to advanced rider. Most beginners start to go up on the board in about 5 hours of private lessons. Some beginners need a little more hours of lessons to get to waterstart level, and the fast learners, sometimes take 3 or 4 hours of lessons but it’s an exception, most kiteboarders need a good 10 hours of lessons to become an independent kiteboarder. You can take as many lessons as you wish, it always depends on the level you want to achieve and how fast you want to be up on that board and riding. Experienced kiteboarders can also take lessons, we continue the formation to the level you’re at. Advanced kiteboarders can participate in Kamikaze Jump clinics or Wave Riding clinics and Downwinders. Gear is provided during lessons. Lessons are 2.5 hours. Private lessons are 1 person, group lessons are 2 persons per group.
