Lessons


getting there

Learn to kiteboard under the guidance of our expert and certified instructors that have been leading the sport since its conception! All of the lesson programs are well thought out, organized, and professionally executed: this provides a plan that keeps you on track. Formalized classroom time will help to discuss complicated subjects allowing students to understand the theories that you will be putting into practice on the water. One on the water, inflatable Zodiak boats and waverunners will be trailing behind you to maximize your learning time and minimize the amount of walking. Learning one skill at a time in an easy to comprehend way that builds a strong foundation of self sufficiency. 

All lessons take place on-location at the kitesurf center and school at Waves Village: you can transition from the land to the water by simply walking across the property. A private beach ensures that launch access it is always safe and available for your training. Certified instructors will guide you with an upwind boat ride and go over set-up and launch and then work through the waters back to the training center and resort. The water is all flat and waist deep to make your learning even easier! The soft sand bottom is perfect and the winds are as consistent as you will find anywhere. Finish the day with a shower at our pro shop and enjoy the sunset view from our waterfront deck!

The Way to Fly combines the group setting of our Fly and Ride Course with the individualized attention of a Private Lesson over the course of two days. Certified instructors help you develop a solid understanding of kite knowledge and control on the first day as you spend several hours in the water working in small groups developing your kite control while also learning to body drag, self rescue and stand up on the board for your first water starts and riding.
