In only 3 days, you will learn the basics and be able to ride a board. As long as your body weight is at least 45 kilograms, no one is too young or old for this activity (Kite School Portugal accept students from 14 to 75 year olds).
Equipment has become considerably safer during recent years, so kitesurfing gets your adrenaline levels up without being necessarily an extreme sport. Well, at least if you have this kind of equipment and know how to use it properly. At Kite School Portugal, they do. That is why they got their internationally recognized license from VDWS International.
To get going, Kite School Portugal recommends you to take professional lessons for at least 3 to 5 days, and to keep practicing under the supervision of a kiteschool after that, so you have a rescue service available if needed. Soon you will be able to fly your board across the oceans safely and with control.
You will have 10 hours of kite surf sessions. The goal of this course is to get you up and riding on your board and to learn how to go upwind. This program includes:

Perfect for the trial lesson, Meia Preia is huge long beach that offers great conditions to fly the power kites on land and try out first body drags in the shallow water. The offshore wind makes this spot only suitable for beginners or very advanced kiters. Intermediates should stay inside a safe lagoon.
Bordeira, Carapateira, and Milfontes have huge open sand beaches for kilometers and always waves waiting for you. But, Kite Surfing School makes the experience that is mainly due to thermic conditions. In this spots, the wind works better in the spring and autumn than during the summer.
