Kitesurfing or kiteboarding is one extreme surface watersport that is really fun and exciting to learn! A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without foot straps or bindings. Just like paragliding or flying, the learning process of kitesurfing or kiteboarding is quite involved, and normally takes around six to eight hours of one on one tuition, before you become competent enough to take your own kite out to continue the practice.
In this camp, you will learn all the basic skills from safety, trainer kite, set up, onto flying the big kite, doing body dragging, downwind. Once you can body drag downwind and upwind without crashing the kite, learned the relaunching and self-rescue, you are then ready for the board!
