A water sport for everyone who wish to combine adrenalin and total freedom on the water.
You can take kitesurfing lessons from the age of 14 and up! – kitesurfing is simply for everyone. The combination of a small board and a kite gives you a compact set-up, that will fit into a smart-car and take you on the water wherever you like. This is one of the reasons that kitesurfing has been one of the fastest growing water sports in the history.
Kitesurfing is marked as an extreme sport, and we highly suggest you not to start on your own. This is for your own safety, but more importantly the ones that loves beaches as much as you do! Youtube got thousands of examples why you shouldn’t start without seeking for a certified kitesurfing school at first. Thus many Youtube scenarios on how kitesurfing can go wrong you shouldn’t be afraid of starting as long as you follow the guidelines on how to learn kitesurfing.
So first lesson: NEVER go buy a kite and start without a kitesurfing lesson!
It's fairly easy to learn kitesurfing, but you won't be flying on the water with only a 5-hour lesson. Our kitesurfing school offers a variety of classes, that you can choose between. One day courses, weekend courses, kitesurfing camps, brush up lessons etc. If you have no experience with kitesurfing all lessons will go through the mandatory steps of being a kitesurfer. Most important for the lessons or classes you choose to take, is that it fits your schedule.
We’ve put down a small outline of what you can expect on the first day as a kitesurfer.
You will have to walk before you can run. This step usually takes about an hour, and we will go through the basics of controlling a kite.
It's time for putting on a wetsuit. But before we jump into the water, you will have to know the basics of rigging the kite and use the safety features.
We have now switched the trainer kite to a real size kite. It has an extra dimension of control which we will spend time on learning.
When the control of the kite is mastered, you are challenged to control the kite so it will drag you through the water safely. This includes exercising a "superman body drag", regular "body drag", and "power strokes".
Once again - you will have to walk before you can run. Before you can try to get on the board, you will have to control the kite correctly. We practice how to balance your body while getting up the board.
Of course, riding on the water with the board under your feet is the hardest part. It takes time to master the kite and the board at the same time, but we will make it happen!
All our lessons are done within the standards of The Danish Sail Union. Out beginner lessons focus on getting you through the “Kitesurfer 1” standards, which mainly focuses on being safe in the shallow water. If you wish to explore deep water kitesurfing, we advise you to master the standards of “kitesurfer 2”.
Danish sail union standards are similar to IKO standards. We will not be able to convert kitesurfing certificates into IKO certificates, but we can hand out a personal card, which indicates that you have passed the standards of the Danish sail union, which may be used to rent kites in foreign countries.
If you wish to become certificated within The Danish Sail Union, we offer the extra theory it takes down below. This lesson will only focus on theory of kitesurfing, and the certificate can also be useful as an checklist of your final kiteboarding skills.
Kitesurfer 1, theory and practical: 795 DKK pr. person
Kitesurfer 2, theory and practical: 795 DKK pr. person
