Sign up to the Full Course and learn a new and exciting sport!  The course follows the IKO teaching syllabus and we aim to progress you to your first rides on the board.  

Approximately 15 hours is the minimum instruction period we recommend to people who want to start the sport. This is the minimum amount of instruction time for novice kitesurfers to be able to progress by themselves afterwards - in a safe and controlled way. To avoid the burden on students trying to complete the course before all their hours have been used up, we provide a fixed price for 15 hours to allow all our students to complete the course and qualify as independent kitesurfers.
