Want to learn to kiteboard?
Then this is the course for you. Inclusive all the gear, insurance, rescue and plenty of fun!
During the Level 2 course you will use all the flying knowledge you gained in Level 1, but make sure you wear a flotation vest, and keep your helmet on because in this level you are ready to get in the water. Once you complete this portion of the program you will start riding the board.
The level 3 course is the stage where all those dreams and hard work pay off, as you get to feel the board on your feet! By the end of the section you will be able to start jumping and will truly be an independent rider. Then you are off to explore the world’s different locations, water surfaces and wind strengths!
