The 2 Day Kitesurfing Course is ideal as an entry into the sport. The first day follows the same outline as the 1 Day Kitesurfing Lesson – an introduction to kitesurfing and the fundamentals along with how to fly a small trainer kite, set up and tuning of a kitesurfing rig and body dragging techniques in the water. The second day then goes onto more advanced body drags and introduces board start theory and practise.
2 Day Kitesurfing Course – Outline
- Recap of site assessments and LEI kite set-up
- Own set-up and tuning of LEI kitesurfing kite
- Controlled downwind, directional, upwind and balance body dragging
- Introduction to boardstart theory
- Boardstart practise on The Kitesurf Centre’s unique Board Start Trainer
- Boardstart practise in the water
- Recap of emergency packdown and self-rescue techniques
Part 1 – Safety & Setup Recap
Day 2 starts with a quick recap of the safety and theory you covered in Day 1, including site assessments and the setting up of the kitesurf kite.
You’ll get the chance to set up the kite on your own this time, showing the instructor what you’ve remembered from Day 1 and putting it into practise.
Once this is done you’ll head straight out to the water to cover any of the body drags you didn’t complete on Day 1.
Part 2 – Advanced Bodydragging
As soon as you’ve recapped the setup, it’s time to head out into the water to go through the rest of the bodydrags. In total, you’ll cover the following bodydrags:
The upwind bodydrag is one of the most useful skills to learn as a kiter, if you ever lose your board or get out of your depth, it’s the best way to get back to it.
Part 3 – Board Start Theory & Practise
Once you’ve completed all of the bodydrags and have gained a sufficient level of kite control, it’s time to introduce you to the board.
Our unique board start trainer is a fantastic way to get you used to the movements you need to go through in order to board start. It’s a great opportunity to practise without the kite as there’s a lot to do and it’ll take a few attempts!
Once you’ve had a few attempts, it’s time to head back into the water and try it for real! It might take a few attempts, but there’s plenty of time for you to try and before you know it you’ll be up and riding along!
Part 4 – Lesson Debrief
At the end of the lesson, you’ll head back to The Kitesurf Centre’s main building for an end of session debrief, where you’ll receive your BKSA kiteboarder card and your log book. The instructor will mark off on your card and log book which levels you’ve achieved. If you’re back the next day, the instructor will let you know the plan for the next day and give you some individual exercises to practise before you come back. The instructor will also send you a message in your booking account with anything you need to cover, post session recaps and any recommendations they’ve given. This is super useful in the future if you decide to come back another day!
