Our answers to frequently asked questions

how many hours of lesson do I need?

This differs per person, but the average student needs between 9 and 12 hours of kitesurf lessons to be able to go on the water independently. This means that you can ride left and right in a safe way and implement a controlled stop.

Is it hard to get the hang of kitesurfing?

Kitesurfing is an extreme sport and is difficult in the beginning, but under the guidance of our enthusiastic instructors your learning curve is fast and above all safe.

Is kitesurfing dangerous?

Kitesurfing is an extreme sport. That is why it is important that you learn the sport under the guidance of certified instructors. Never try to learn in by yourself and never go on the water on your own.

Our instructors ensure that you learn kitesurfing in a safe way with all necessary safety systems.

Can I book a group lesson on my own?

of course this is possible
We do our utmost to fill up all kite surfing lessons. It is possible that no fellow student is available on the day of your kitesurfing lesson.
You will then be offered a private or duo lesson at a reduced rate or we will move your group lesson to another date in consultation.
