1 Day Kiteboarding Discovery course

 

In this fun day of kiting, you will learn the similar skills as the first day of the 3 day beginner course does. This course will give you a better understanding of what makes kiteboarding the exciting sport it is. You will leave with good knowledge on how the kiteboarding equipment works and you will get into the water flying a kite. You will also gain skills in setting up and flying a 4 line kite. Your level will be certified with an IKO Member Card and at the end of your lesson you will be Kiteboarder Level 1. If you wish, you can successfully move on to the next level of kiteboarding with our 3 Day Course.
