Frequently asked questions:

Are lessons really necessary since I surf, windsurf and wakeboard? 

Lessons are essential to safely practice the sport, not only for yourself but also for the safety of the general public. A kiter losing control of his kite can cause serious injuries. Please only get lessons from a properly qualified IKO instructor to make sure all safety aspects are covered. 

How long does it takes to learn kiteboarding?

To be realistic, on average, it takes 10 to 12 hours to get up on the board and ride in both directions.

How old must I be in order to start kiteboarding lessons? What about minimum weight? 

Kiteboarding is taught to children starting from the age of 12. Some begin even earlier with constant supervision. Physical condition rather than weight is taken into consideration but a general rule the minimum weight is around 80 lb. (35kg) minimum. 

What Level will I Reach within how many hours?

According to the International Kiteboarding Organization standards, (IKO is the authority worldwide to certify and train kite boarders and instructors), and with our experience, here is the approximate level you can expect to reach:

  • 2 - 3 hours: Kite set up- trainer practice- kite piloting in water - body drags- and safety procedures = Discovery IKO Level 1.
  • 6 hours: Kite control fully powered - board recovery in deep water, - self rescue procedures- and first water start = Intermediate IKO Level 2.
  • 9 hours: waterstarting both directions - fully autonomous with kite and safety awareness = Intermediate IKO Level 2 and 3.
  • 12 - 15 hours: Consistent riding and upwind riding. = Independent IKO Level 3.
