What will I learn in a beginners kiteboarding class?

December 12, 2019

A standard beginner’s course is broken down into three core elements:

  1. Flying a kite on land: launching, landing and kite control
  2. Flying a kite in the water: body dragging, control and re-launching
  3. Getting up and riding on a board
Within these elements, you will also learn about:
  • Assessing an area for safe kiting conditions
  • Understanding the wind direction, strength and gusts
  • Understanding tides, currents and hazards
  • Choosing the right equipment for the conditions
  • Setting-up, tuning and packing down your equipment
  • Safety procedures and what to do in an emergency
  • Board-starts (getting up on the board)
  • Continuous riding and speed control
  • How to stay upwind
  • Rules and rights of way on the water
