KITESURFING

RIDE WITH THE WIND

Learning to kite surf is easier than you think. If you’ve tried snowboarding or skateboarding you’ll be amazed how similar these are to kite surfing! The harness makes light work of the most powerful winds so you can control the kite and steer with one hand on the kite bar, making this suitable for most fitness levels. With the best instructors, incredible weather and flat water lagoons, the Algarve is the perfect backdrop to your kiting holiday.

3 Hour Course
On day one you will learn the theory, safety training and how to control a kite. You will experience the power and sensation of the wind with ‘Body Drags’.  Once you start to feel this you will quickly want to get a surf board under your feet so you can start skimming the waves.
Includes: Short theory part, safety systems, equipment set up, launching & landing, piloting a small kite on the beach, practising with a bigger inflatable kite in the water, body dragging.

7 Hour Course
By day two you will want to get up and moving. This day will be an introduction to the basic techniques of kite surfing.
