Flying Gecko Kiteboarding Surf Camp in Turkey Program

Program

Kite hydrofoiling has come a very long way in just a few years. Today, with the latest high-technological gear, this amazing faction of the kitesurfing sport is more accessible than most riders would ever imagine. Hydrofoiling is a completely new discipline, a different experience than traditional kiteboarding with either twin tip or directional boards.

Besides your kite control, you can forget everything you learned to date, get riding in the lightest of breeze, and go upwind at an unbelievable angle, faster, and more effectively than a race rigged catamaran. This surf camp is geared for intermediate kiteboarders wanting to experience the stoke of hydrofoiling coupled with some potential twin tip action. The course will be performed over the first two days and includes the hydrofoil board and all other equipment required.

Safety

Please beware and don’t try this daring discipline alone and don't just "buy it to try it". You must attend a professionally structured foiling course prior to practicing by yourself to assure your own safety and progression as well as the safety of others on the water. It is safety first because you’ll be riding on a deadly weapon at eye-watering speeds that can injure if initially, you do not know what you are doing.

The Course

The 4-hour IKA course is 1 on 1 and consists of 4 stages split over 2 days.

  • Hour 1 : Land based theory and preliminary preparation
  • Hour 2 & 3 : On the water with 38cm short mast foil board with a foil kite or your own inflated leading edge kite, dependant upon wind level and your preference.
  • Hour 4: On the water with 61cm / 76cm long mast foil board with a foil kite or your own inflated leading edge kite, dependant upon wind level and your preference.

Location

The Foil Camp spot is located in the Cesme region of South West Turkey on the Aegean Sea in the vicinity of Alacati at the rural village Gülbahçe, a 30-minute drive from İzmir Adnan Menderes Airport (ADB). This place provides perfect conditions with over 250 foiling days per year. Gulbache is a typical quiet Turkish waterside village, near the historic town of Klazomenia which boasts the worlds first Olive Oil production facility (6BC!) it is full of ancient history as well as numerous seaside eateries and bars.

To the west lies the town of Alacati (15 minutes by car). Traditionally and still mostly a Mecca for windsurfers, Alacati not only has some great bars and restaurants but also some ideal kite surf spots too. Alacati comes into its own in the SW wind which prevails in the winter through to March / April and then makes guest appearances through the summer months dependent on weather patterns. When this blows, the huge area of shallow water across from the little port of Alacati at the mouth of the Karsiyaka Azmagi estuary is turned into an expansive water playground capable of giving space to all comers.

The wind tends to kick in around noon so if you have been foiling at Gulbache in the morning, wind permitting, why not try an afternoon twin tip session near Alacati in the afternoon? It's worth noting that Alacati is generally full of Turkish holidaymakers rather than overseas visitors so its colorful, got a great local feel and offers superb value for money.
