This full day course is the cornerstone of learning to kiteboard with Kitty Hawk Kites. It’s a comprehensive course designed to establish a solid foundation in the sport with emphasis on safety and kite control to ensure that you’re ready to take the next step. We utilize small a small group setting (no more than 3:1 ratio) to help improve the learning environment.
- PART 1: LEARN TO FLY – (2 hours)
Start your day out with the fundamentals of kiteboarding. You’ll learn proper safety protocol and procedures for kiteboarding as well as understanding wind speed, direction and theory. Next you’ll learn how to apply this knowledge to help you choose the right kite size, rig your equipment, and then ultimately how to launch and land the kite with basic kite control.
- PART 2: BEGIN TO BOARD – (3 hours)
After a short break, transition to the water so that you can learn to relaunch the kite as well as how to sheet and depower the kite. You’ll learn to body drag with a kiteboard while sheeting the kite to control power, but the ultimate goal is to progress you to combining board balance on the kiteboard for your first water starts and basic riding. By focusing on understanding how to control power through power strokes you’ll learn how to transition from a water start into basic downwind riding. Self rescue and self exits will be practiced.
