Choose Private or Group Lessons

Kite Club has created the perfect training course that allows you to become a safe and confident Kite Boarder while passing all the IKO levels needed. You can choose to take your lessons Privately or in a Group of two.

Private Lessons

Private Lessons are for people who want to learn Kite Surfing in the least amount of time and with maximum input from their Instructor. Lessons are adapted to personal abilities and learning needs allowing an accelerated progress through the IKO Levels. Private Lessons lets you have full use of all equipment for the duration of the lesson. Private Lessons are given in 3-hour sessions each day.

Group Lessons

Group Lessons are perfect for couples, friends or families who want to learn Kite Surfing in a fun and affordable way. Group sizes are either 2 or 4 people per Instructor. Individual people can join group lessons if we have another client available to make up a pair. People on a Group Lesson learn the “Buddy System” where 2 people learn while sharing one Kite. This allows people to watch and learn while their “Buddy” practises before trying themselves. Group Lessons are given in 2-hour sessions twice a day, one in the morning and the second after lunch.
