Basic Kitesurfing Course Outline
The first thing we are interested in is definitely making a first acquaintance! Then we begin to analyze the wind and understand how a kite flies. We will evaluate the spot together, and decide what equipment to use for the kite training.
Thereafter, we will evaluate the intensity of the wind and its direction, focusing on the most important safety rules! Then we will use a trainer of about 2 meters to understand the correct position of the rod and body in relation to the kite, to be able to see the flight window in practice, play with the kite that makes “eight”, to get acquainted with the glider!
At this point, we begin to set goals for each lesson! During this phase we will explain how to “arm” a real kite (Pump), then we use a rod with short cables (short line), we will go over the windshield, which makes the kite lift, and land and hold it in low areas.
This time it is up to you, under the watchful eye of the instructors, to request necessary equipment, so that you can arm the kite yourself! At this point, we will begin to understand and control all power levels that are connected to the harness, try to become familiar with the traction force, and simulate starting and sailing maneuvers.
It’s time to get into the water! We will start to manage the balance of our bodies in the water and use the traction to move! In this phase we will see the passages (transverse, aft, slack, tailwind) with the body pull technique, that is, let us be towed by the bodyweight, without a board! So if you hold the kite at 45 degrees, we use the arm as a drift, and will see how the board is recycled in the sea!
Now we have to learn to handle the kite-board and the bar, to prepare for the water start, that is, we learn to make the first starters with simple balance and coordination exercises. The instructor decides from time to time how the course should proceed based on the student’s learning, the length of the lesson, and the marine weather conditions.
