It is a perfect place to enjoy the local life / culture while meeting other kitesurf lovers.

Program

The classes take place with an instructor and one kite per pupil in private lessons or in groups of a maximum of two to three people. Several points are covered: riding safely, going upwind, transitions, tacking, first jump, etc. To progress, what is needed above all is to practice as much as possible. That is why Kite Verde also offers supervised navigation. You are not in class but you will be supervised by a teaching assistant to help you in case of problems. You should be able to go back and forth in both directions and be familiar with safety techniques to be supervised.

Expert surfers can enjoy twin-tip freestyle lessons, strapless surf kite, wave coaching, and downwind. You can learn about rotations (back loop and front loop), railey, kiteloop, unhooked, board off, one foot, grabs, etc. You can also have downwind session from Kite Beach to Santa Maria for one hour including the instructor's briefing or from Pedra de Lume to Kite Beach for three hours including transfer and briefing.

Notes

If the level of the student is not enough to rent, the lessons will be held in groups at the beginning of the week. Over three days, there will be two lessons per day for two hours each. If after the 12-hour lesson you are not yet autonomous, you can be kept under supervision for an additional 10 EUR per two-hour session.
