Master the kitesurfing kite! Daily 11:30-2:30 or 3-6pm
This course will prepare you for the intermediate course. Lesson is mostly on the beach with small safe kites progressing to larger kites as you are ready. Most don't understand that mastering the kite is the trick to this sport, and its best done on the beach. You will have time to master your skills with the full sized kitesurfing kites. This is challenging fun. The instructor will break this down into small steps in the appropriate order to safely make riding possible for most anyone. With the kite under control you will be ready to safely progress to the water with your instructor right next to you. No special athletic ability or strength is needed. This will be a great experience to feel and control the power of the larger kites, and with your instructor's help the kite can pull you like a dolphin in the water! Your instructor can take some photos or videos on this once in a lifetime experience. 3 hours, 11:30-2:30, or 3-6. Typically 1-2 students.
Intermediate Course - 3 hrs - $200 Daily 3-6pm
