Kitesurfing lessons and our drive
How quickly someone learns how to kitesurf differs per person. The quicker you master the steps the quicker you are on a board. That differs per person. Our kitesurfing lessons are not only focussed on teaching you to go kitesurfing as soon as possible but especially aimed on safety so you can go kitesurfing independently and safely in the end. To master the basics of kitesurfing well, we advise you to do a three days course. After a three days course the average student will have sufficient control to go on independently. If you like some extra coaching after that we will make that possible. Our starting point and our drive is to teach you safe kitesurfing as soon as possible.
