YOUR TYPICAL DAY
When you wake up in the accommodation, the Breakfast will be served and around 11.00 the wind will start to come and breeze. We will then begin the course. The 9 hour course is split up in 3 days. On a normal day there will be a 3 hours lesson per day. After the course, the option for renting will be available for you as we do have rentals with “ Supervision” and this is great for people who want to continue or for the ones that don’t feel confident on the water yet. Supervision is great and the “ beachboy” will have an eye out for you and will be there to land, launch and help you on the water.
We give you a 9 hour beginner course and this will be given in 3 days at 3 hours per day. However if you feel good after your 3 hours and want to continue, then this is a possibility depending on the wind situation that day.
In the course you’ll learn everything about the wind, the water, the kite, safety, water starts, riding, board control, launching, relaunching, … enough to do, let’s kite!
All meals are included. Breakfast, lunch (on the beach in our beach hut, if you would like) and dinner. 1 time per week there is a nice fish bbq.
