Kitesurfing baptism

The team will use equipment for teaching (kites, boards, etc.) appropriately to each student and its respective level. At the end of the course, you will be certified with an “IKO Kiteboard Card” and evaluate the school and the monitor through a questionnaire being one of the copies sent to IKO.

In this kitesurfing baptism, you will be made a presentation of all the material used as well as to safety rules, namely when practicing this sport. The practical component is to learn how to command the ground initiation kite. You will learn the maneuvers that will allow you to lower and lift the kite among others through a series of exercises. The duration for kitesurf baptism will be one and a half hours for two persons.
