3 Day Kitesurfing Lesson Gift Voucher
Lesson Duration: 17 Hours (6 Hours Day 1 & 2, 3 Hours Day 3 – Day 3 is run as a 2 person private)
Cost: £299 Weekdays, £349 Weekends / Bank Holidays
The 3 day kitesurfing lesson is aimed at complete beginners and a great introduction to the sport.
Following on from the 1 Day and 2 Day Kitesurfing courses, the third day of this course provides another full day of tuition to really master your board control and work towards becoming an independent kitesurfer whilst filling in any gaps in your knowledge. Day 3 of this course is taught in groups of 2 to really allow you time to progress your board riding.
The 3 Day course covers the same as the one and two day courses, with the addition and further practise of the following skills on Day 3:
- Competent board starts
- Speed control with board edging
- Control amongst waves
- Initiating steering and turns
- Advanced weather and tide analysis
- Advanced site assessments
Part 1 – Consistent Board Starts & Controlled Runs
The main focus of Day 3 is to perfect your board start and begin to introduce longer, controlled runs. Once this is mastered, you’ll begin to learn how to control your speed, start to turn and even ride upwind.
Technique & Stance: Once you’re up and riding, you can begin to work on your stance, body position and balance to help give you more control, feel more comfortable and look cool when kiting.
Controlled Runs: Alongside mastering board starts and producing long, controlled runs whilst keeping constant power from the kite, you’ll start to learn board edge control with the aim to ride upwind.
Slide Turns: Once you’ve learned to ride, it’s time to learn how to come back! With the additional time in the water that Day 3 offers, you can learn to control the board better and begin linking the runs you do by initiating some turns, sliding the board around and continuing on your way.
Part 2 – 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!
You’ll also receive a handout pack with exclusive packages for students and voucher with money towards an equipment package. The instructor will go through the equipment with you individually offering recommendations and giving you the opportunity to customise the package.
Day 3 is the day you get on the board – the most exciting part of the course and the bit you’ve all been waiting for! First going through the basic steps of board starts with our simulator, you’ll then head out in the water for an entire day of practising getting up on the board and doing your first rides with prolonged power delivery from the kite. Feeling the wind on your face as you skim across the water and the joy it brings you is the culmination of three days of effort from you. There’s no feeling like it!
As this is a group lesson, you will be in a group of up to 4 people. If on the day there are only 1 or 2 people, the lesson will be run shorter, to the equivalent of the monetary value for private tuition.
All of the equipment is provided.
