Kitesurfing lessons Types

Private (1:1) or semi-private (2:1) ?

Private kitesurfing course means 1 student, 1 kite instructor

Private kitesurfing lessons are the fastest way to learn as you can progress without interruptions and at your own pace. Furthermore, you benefit from the undivided attention of your instructor, keep your individual rhythm and reach your goals faster than you think. As a result, the sense of achievement is as good as guaranteed!

Semi-private* kitesurfing course means 2 students, 1 kite instructor, 1 kite

Semi-private kitesurfing lessons in Mikri Vigla are most suitable for beginner kiters of a similar level and body weight (max. 2 people), except for the first theory session and the first attempts to fly the kite, which can be done regardless of body weight (up to 4 people). Notably, such semi-private or group kitesurfing lessons are a fun activity to try with a friend or family member. During these lessons, the participants take turns controlling the kite, which gives you time to rest in between, to assist each other and to compare experiences.

I had a Epic time at the Kite Center Naxos by Thalasea Sports.The communication through the WhatsApp line worked perfect and everything was ready when I got there. Latest gear and all around an epic experience.Thanks to the team!Conditions were a bit choppy and gusty and I also had to navigate past some learners, but all and all a session I would never forget.

Referring to Webster dictionary and their listing :Total epic awesomeness: noun : Thalasea Sports Kite center Nacos.staff and sport service !Including everyone from the desk help and scheduling, instructing and lessons, being super chill all around and everyone. The number of high fives my 2.5 year old daughter had and gave in the week we were there could have been a Guiness record ! From sun up to sun down - pure positive vibrations and energy. My wife rocked a refresher course and loved it and did super awesome too.

Awesome kite center: has the best setup just by the beach, storage and facilities + a cool bar to work from. Service was excellent, both Jasmin and Andreas were always helpful and available. We even had to have some repair done for our gear and it was ready overnight to ride the next day!

Knowledgeable and fun people, in a good location with good material, what else do you want? The facilities provided are good, right on the beach. The spot is good for beginners but the more developed kiter will experience this spot is perfect for improving on tricks.

Best kite school & gear rentals at Mikra Vigla! Can’t thank them enough for our experience. Their instructors were top tier for those doing lessons.I didn’t travel with my own quiver and they recognized I needed reliable gear. They opened up a brand new 9m switchblade for me to rent!🤯This is the first time I’ve ever rented gear I was 100% confident looping on. 🚀🚀 We will be back soon as possible!The spot is epic: clear & warm water with nuking wind. Great food at their restaurant. You can tell they are continually investing in their property to provide a one of kind experience for lessons, rentals, and accommodations.The inside scoop from their instructors who have taught at other local schools is that this one is the best!

Advanced Coaching

To take your kitesurfing to the next level, you can participate in a radio-assisted, intensive Progression Session. During this session, you can step up your riding game, land new freestyle moves and old school jumps, or try a strapless or a foil board for the first time. Notably, a minimum required IKO level of 3K (riding upwind) is necessary to participate.

  • advanced coaching basic with bbtalk**, + 20€ per hour (65 + 20 = 85€)
  • advanced coaching premium with bbtalk**, +40€ per hour (65 + 40 = 105€)

**About advanced coaching: bbtalk is a 2-way radio system that allows you to not only hear your instructor but also talk back to him/her. For the basic advanced coaching the instructor will stay on land and instruct you from there. For the advanced coaching premium the instructor will join you on the water with his/her own kite.

Supervised Riding Sessions

Supervised riding is available only for riders who have previously done at least 1 hour of private lessons with one of our instructors and are subsequently deemed independent enough to kitesurf on their own, without further radio assistance, under the supervision of one of our team members. However, please note that especially when the kite spot is crowded and/or the wind conditions are extreme (either very strong or very light), supervised riding might not be possible. In this case, we might suggest you take a private lesson instead to ensure maximum safety.

Supervised session 45€ per hour including equipment

IKO certification

Firstly, for independent riders who want to be evaluated and certified, we offer the possibility of an IKO assessment session. During this session, you will have the chance to show proof of your level at any IKO affiliated kite school around the world. Secondly, to be certified as an independent rider, you need to demonstrate specific skills such as riding upwind in all conditions, knowing the ROW rules, launching and landing safely, and handling the kite on the beach. Additionally, you will be expected to show proficiency in body-dragging upwind to retrieve your board. You will receive an IKO Kiteboarder Card (vCard) at the completion of the session.

IKO certification, 45€ including equipment (Duration: max.1 hour)

Rental check

As safety is one of our main priorities, before renting any kite gear from our kite center, every person will have to go through a Rental Check under the supervision of one of our IKO certified instructors. During this session, you will have to prove that you are an independent kiteboarder (IKO level 3K). If you pass the Rental Check, the fee will be deducted from your rental price.

Rental check, 20€ including equipment (Duration: max.30 minutes)
