Kitesurfing beginners course

As a beginner in kite surfing in the water you will start with this course and then move on to our advanced courses. As a snow kiter you should also attend this course to learn the theory for the VDWS license. With this course you will be well prepared for our advanced courses, where you will put theory and exercises into practice on the water. You only book this course for one day, on the following days you improve your skills by taking the intermediate classes.

The courses run the whole day from 10 am to 3 pm. For large groups and companies we also offer individual events. More information here.

In high season (July and August) our beginner courses take place daily and in low season every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. (group lessons with max. 4 students per teacher).

There are only a few requirements to learn kite surfing: you must be able to swim and have a basic physical fitness. Previous knowledge of board sports (surfing, snowboarding, wake boarding, wake surfing, skateboarding etc) is an advantage but not necessary. The somewhat lower water temperature compared to a swimming pool is almost not noticeable thanks to the use of a wetsuit. The equipment is included in the course

This beginner's course starts from the very beginning with theory and flight exercises. The course fee includes kitesurf equipment with wetsuit, liability insurance, VDWS kitesurf work- and stylebook, theory exam and VDWS license. More information about the VDWS license can be found here.
