BOAT LESSONS

Learning from the boat will allow you to progress faster as you will be practicing in flatter water with endless space!

Boat preparation

You will start with a beach lesson to make sure you know all the basics of kitesurfing and all the safety procedures to kitesurf from a boat.

For beginners, we begin with two hours of beach lessons. We will assess your progress and depending on this you will move on to the 1 hr of boat preparation, or complete further hours of beach lessons. The amount of hours at the beach will depend on your progression but the average for a beginner is 2 hours.

For students at an intermediate of advanced kiteboarding level beach lessons will not be needed. In this case you will only need 1 hour of boat preparation.

Boat lessons

With a maximum of two students per instructor, you will learn in open water from body draging to riding on the board! For the advanced riders, it is also a great opportunity to learn freestyle, strapless riding, learn new tricks and improve skills! Private boat lessons are also avaliable by request.

YOUR PROGRESSION

Learning to kitesurf is fun and can be fast if compared to other watersports. Every person, depending on your ability 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.

BARBADOS

Barbados is one of the top kitesurfing destinations in the Caribbean. It has conditions suited for different types of kitesurfers including freestylers, freeriders and wave riders.

The main spots are located on the southeast of the island, enjoying consistent trade winds normally ranging between 15-25 knots. Silver Rock and Long Beach are the two popular choices.

Winds are usually easterly and very consistent in both strength and direction. Wind direction is usually side onshore to cross shore. During special times of the year (if you’re lucky you’ll get the local intel!), wind blows more from the south, opening it up to downwinders to the south coast.

The water sports community on the island is very close knit, with the majority of locals kiting together, watching out for each other and briefing newcomers on the ins and outs of the spots. You can choose to enjoy fun kickers, or venture out further to find epic clean waves.

Kiteboarding in Barbados has it all! As an added bonus, the kite spots are just a few minutes’ drive from the airport and close to many facilities. It’s the perfect combination to score an adventurous trip on a Caribbean island, while having comfort and convenience at your shoreline.
