Program

During the first three hours, you will experience the power of the kite pulling you through the water and you’ll be hooked immediately! In only three 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 three to five days, and to keep practicing under the supervision of a kite school 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 kitesurf 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:

  • Complete theory
  • Safety systems
  • Equipment set up
  • Launching
  • Landing
  • Piloting a small trainer kite on the beach
  • Practicing with a bigger inflatable kite in the water
  • Body dragging
  • Water relaunch
  • Self-rescue
  • Waterstart
  • Riding with control

Location

This surf camp will be held at a kite and surf camp in Lagos. Set in the beautiful countryside, offering tranquil escape spot in nature, the kite and surf camp is located just six-minute drive away from Lagos and only 10 minutes away from the kitesurfing lagoon. Lagos was Tripadvisor’s Top Holiday Destination in 2015 and with fantastic restaurants, a great range of bars, and lively nightlife. You have the best of both worlds while staying at the kite camp.

Surf spots

Alvor lagoon

The strong Nortada wind in the summer and the big Alvor lagoon with waist deep water offer ideal conditions to learn and practice kitesurfing in the Algarve.

In the past, the PKRA Kiteboarding World Tour was held in Alvor, and recently it was stated again by the world sailor, Alex Thomson, that Alvor is one of the best kiteboarding spots in the world.

Meia Praia

Perfect for the trial lesson, Meia Preia is a 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

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.
