All of our packages, from Beginner to Advanced, as well as our Refresher, are based on the official International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) training program and are offered in German, French, English, Italian, Greek and more.
One of our qualified IKO certified instructors will guide you through a safe and fun lesson that is tailored to your individual needs and adapts to your personal progression speed.
Using radio assistance your IKO instructor will be able to give you the right feedback at the right time, allowing you to correct your mistakes instantly and thus advance in the most efficient way possible.
To ensure the best quality for your kite lessonss we supply you with the latest and safest kiteboarding gear from two of the leading brands (Duotone and Cabrinha) and, of course, all the rest of the necessary equipment from ION (e.g. wetsuit, harness, helmet, impact vest, etc.)
Course types: Private (1:1) or semi-private (2:1)
. Private means 1 student, 1 kite instructor.
Individual lessons (private) are the fastest way to progress as you can progress without interruptions and at your own pace. You benefit from the undivided attention of your instructor, keep your individual rhythm and reach your goals faster than you think. So the sense of achievement is as good as guaranteed!
. Semi-private* means 2 students, 1 kite instructor, 1 kite.
Semi-private courses are suitable for 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).
In addition, such double or group lessons are a fun activity to try with a friend or family member. Here the participants take turns controlling the kite, which gives you time to rest in between, to assist each other and to compare experiences.
