Program

You’ll go through the very basic theory and techniques of kiting and Essaouira Watersports will teach you everything from how to carry your kite and to integrate the kiting skills by riding on the board on the water.

The goal of the experienced instructors is to make you feel confident and encouraging you in a safe environment where you learn as much as possible during the course.

The goal of the course is that you will feel independent and safe with the kite, so you can continue practicing on your own later once you become autonomous.

The very basic theory and techniques are:

  • Equipment and safety theory
  • Kite set-up
  • Know the use of the safety systems
  • Understanding the wind window and basic kite flying skills
  • Hand signals
  • Launch and land the kite
  • Re-launch the kite
  • Basic downwind body dragging and advanced upwind body dragging (water)

Location

Essaouira is known as Morocco's windy city. The beautiful medina with its smell of spices and thuya wood, gorgeous souvenir shops, and busy hustlers is listed on the UNESCO world heritage and is a magical place full of color and character!

The half-moon shaped bay of Essaouira is the perfect beach to learn kitesurfing with a great wind statistic and an almost unbelievably long sandy beach without any obstacles or rocks. Due to the Passat winds, there are good side shore winds nearly all year round. Shallow water and a sandy beach make this bay the perfect spot to learn kitesurfing in a fun and in a save way.

Essaouira Watersports is passionate about the ocean, the beach, and they take care of the environment. Therefore, it makes them proud that the main beach Essaouira Bay is certified with the label "Pavillion Bleu".
