Kitesurf Lessons

FROM EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS

If you are planning to try flying a kite on your own for the first time, don’t! It is absolutely necessary to complete a course first so that you won’t put yourself and/or others at risk. Since kitesurfing is an extreme sport, the rule “safety first” applies more than ever! In just a few hours, you can learn how to kitesurf safely, easily and fast.

A few tips about kitesurfing:

Is it hard?

No, it isn’t as long as you are taught the right way and with proper guidance by your instructor.

What will I need for the lesson?

We’ll take care of that. You will have to bring sunscreen, a swimsuit and…your good vibes!

Where do lessons take place?

It depends on the direction of the wind. Usually in Loutsa, Schoinias or Oropos. However, we  may organize a kitetrip outside Athens at weekends if it’s not windy here.

What is included in the lessons?

In a nutshell, first some theory and flying a trainer kite (on land).

Second, you get in the water with the 4/5 line kite and practice (safety systems, launching and landing the kite). Then, body dragging follows, that is flying the kite in the water and going upwind and downwind but without using the board yet.
