Kitesurfing Lessons



Kitesurfing lesson / course

Our Kite school offers group and private kitesurfing lessons including full equipment. You can learn everything from the first piloting up to your first jumps, don't expect to be able to do all that in one week though. We always focus on your safety and pleasure. We recommend our students to do no more than 2 hours in a row, as fatigue slows down the progress later on.
We can teach in English, French, Greek, German, Spanish and Estonian. In the end of their course every student gets an IKO Member Card registered with their level that allows them to continue their course later and rent equipment (if the student has reached level 3K).

  • Some tips for having quality kite lessons:

  • Avoid booking a full course online! Observe and check how a kitesurf lesson is done, before you book!

  • Never prepay many hours of lessons! Wind can change unexpectedly. Your lessons can get cancelled and in the worst case you will not get back the money. Also maybe you overestimate your physical condition.

  • Don't book group lessons with people you don't know!

  • Check the reviews of previous students!

  • Is the wind side on-shore and the beach sandy without rocks? Safety first!

  • You should not plan to do more than 2 hours in a row. You need a fresh mind and body to learn this sport.

  • Don't go for a lesson with less than 10 knots or more than 30 knots!
