Our beginner kitesurf course in Tarifa is scheduled to be done in 3 days. We recommend a private lesson for beginners – it’s the fastest way for you to progress, progress will make you happy, and we want you to be happy!
Everyone progresses at a different rate but this is roughly what you’ll be doing on each day of the course.
Day 1 begins with spot identification, reading the weather and safety procedures. Then you’ll learn to set up and fly a trainer kite and a full size kite. You might move on to body dragging and even board starts.
Day 2 kicks off with a refresh of what you learn on day 1. You’ll probably do a recap of body dragging then some board starts and if your confidence and skill levels are high enough move on to some short rides downwind.
Day 3 starts with another recap, and everyone should be getting up on the board, trying some downwind riding and with a bit of luck and a following wind you’ll attempt some upwind riding and your first transitions.
For a detailed breakdown of the minimum we’d hope to teach you take a look at the day tabs at the top of the page. If you’re ready to learn more than that, we’re here to teach you how.
We’ll never push you harder than you want to go but we’ll always try and help you make as much progress as possible.
