Learning to kitesurf is fun and can be fast if compared to other watersports. Every person, depending on their abilities and previous experience, will learn at a different pace. Our instructors offer personalized teaching, adapting lessons to suit your progression.
Instructors are internationally certified, following a methodology to assure safety and efficiency in all lessons. Progression includes learning kite control and riding your way into being an independent kitesurfer.
Typical progression kiteboarding in Barbados:
- 0 – 3 hours:Safety, set-up and kite control! This is taught at the beach. You’ll learn to prepare the gear by yourself, safety systems in case of an emergency, and how to fly the kite with confidence and control. We normally spend between 2-3 hours depending on your needs.
- 3 – 5 hours: Body dragging and water time! This means you’ll practice flying the kite in the water without the board, as well as moving in different directions in the water using the kite. This step is key to continue to practice kite control and to learn how to rescue your board when you lose it in the water.
- 5 – 8 hours:Now it gets real! We call this step the water start. After you learn to ride with the board we”ll teach you to stop, turn and go upwind in a controlled way. We’ll also teach you other safety procedures such as the self-rescue.
