We have 3 option:
1- IKO Kitesurf Course – 3 days
2- Refresher Course
The three-day kitesurf course gets you into the water and up on a board! This course is spilt up into six blocks of two hours and spread over three days. By the end of the third day you will be flying across the water powered by a kite and the wind. This course gives you all the practice, skills and knowledge needed to safely continue to kitesurf on an independent basis.
