Kiteboarding Lessons for Beginners
STEP 1: LAND LESSONS
At Liquid Blue, we like to take our time with you, validating every step you take towards becoming an independent kitesurfer. Just so you know, there are 2 steps in your kiteboarding training – first on the sand and then in the water.
Accordingly, we will teach you kiteboarding in a safe and fun way in 10 steps:
Land Lessons – Introduction to Kiteboarding (~2 hours)
1. Fly the trainee kite to get a feeling of the wind and power of a small kite.
2. Learn the theory of flying a kite, wind speed and direction, wind windows and power zone.
3. Set up the real kite, lines and other equipments and pre-flight check.
4. Train on launching the kite in normal wind condition with assistance.
5. Control of the kite in normal wind condition and learn kite position that create or reduce power. Several exercises will be used in this step.
6. Fly the kite without assistance and understand all safety system
7. Launch and land the kite without assistance.
About Land Lessons
***All these steps have to be completed by the student before we jump to the second part of our learning session in the water. At LB, we understand that everyone learns at a different speed and we will certainly take enough time for you to feel confident about your skills and ability to fly the kite safely and understand each step.
Just remember that your instructor will always be on your side, watching your every movement and giving tips on how best to handle each situation. Don’t be shy, if you don’t understand something, put your hand up and ask questions, we are here for you!
Private lessons and Group lessons are available for On Land Courses – maximum of 2 or 3 students per instructor.
For this course, Liquid Blue Water Sports Center will provide you with all the equipment and gear such as an appropriate size kite, board, and harness. We suggest you to bring your swimming clothes, water, sunglasses, t-shirt, and sun cream.
STEP 2: WATER LESSONS
After taking our Introduction to kiteboard on land, you are now fully ready to jump in the water and on the board!
Flying the kite in the water is slightly different than on land, so we will practice flying the kite in shallow water, performing safety and self-rescue exercises. We will also have fun while using the body as a board to understand the power of the kite in different positions.
Here are the steps we will take to reach our goal:
Water Lessons – Progression in Kiteboarding
8. A series of exercises will explain to you how to relaunch your kite when it crashes in the water and how to handle the specific situation while kiting.
9. Body surfing and body dragging – use the power of the kite to surf with your body. Fun guaranteed!!!
10. Now that you can manage the kite it is time to get up on the board and start riding!! This is the ultimate step where you will get up on the board, start surfing, start edging the board and go upwind.
What does the course include?
This course is a one-to-one approach, with one instructor fully dedicated to the student. We believe that at this stage, the student needs our full attention to progress fast so we provide private lessons until the student is up on the board and ready to ride by himself/herself. Group lessons are also available at this stage.
For this course, Liquid Blue Water Sports Center will provide you with all the equipment and gear such as an appropriate size kite, board, and harness. We suggest you bring your swimming clothes, water, sunglasses, a t-shirt, and sun cream.
