Semi-private kitesurfing course

In semi-private lessons we train you in pairs each with their own kite. Our ability to customize the lessons to your personal needs will improve your skills and help you reach your goal of becoming an independent and safe kiter. If requested and subject to availability, we also offer radio helmets so that we can communicate with you while you are on the water. Surcharge CHF 30.- per person.

The courses take place daily and last 3 hours. In the semi-private course you are 2 students with one instructor and if possible both of you have a kite. This means you have the full 3 hours for yourself as practice time and no kite buddy. The instructor will help you to in and out of the water as well as to launch and land the kite.

Whether you are doing your first body drag or whether you can already ride on both sides, in the semi-private course you can continue exactly where you left off and don't lose time with repetitions.

You can book this course for two even without any previous knowledge. If you have mastered theory and safety and have already flown a depower kite on land, you can also book the course as a single person and we will book a partner for you.

The course fee includes kite equipment incl. wetsuit, liability insurance, VDWS license upgrade. You can find more information about the VDWS licence here.
