Semi-private kitesurfing course

In the semi-private lessons, we train you in pairs with one kite each. This gives your kite instructor the opportunity to tailor the lessons to your individual needs, which optimally improve your skills. This will bring you even closer to your goal of independent, safe kitesurfing. On request and subject to availability, the semi-private lesson can also be booked with a radio helmet (surcharge CHF 20.- per person). With the radio helmet you are in constant contact with your kite instructor and receive direct input. It doesn't matter if you are doing your first bodydrag or if you can already ride on both sides: In the intermediate course you can continue exactly where you left off and don't lose time with repetitions.

The courses take place daily and last 2 hours. In the semi-private course you are 2 students with one instructor and you each have one kite. This allows you to use the 2 hours all to yourself as practice time and you don't have a kite buddy. The instructor will help you get in and out of the water at the lake as well as launching and landing the kite. The course fee includes the kite equipment incl. neoprene, the liability insurance and the VDWS license upgrade.

Can I also book the semi-private course as a beginner or single person?

You can book this course as a couple without any previous knowledge. If you have knowledge of theory and safety and have already flown a Depowerkite on land, you can also book this course as a single person. We will then book a partner for you in the semi-private course.
