The program of a five day kitesurf course **
Introduction of all kitesurfing materials, the wind and the ‘wind-window’. The basic materials of a kite surf set consist of the kite, bar, board and pump. The kitesurf instructor teaches you to use all of these safely and independently. You will also receive a wetsuit, harness and helmet during the kitesurfing course. You will also learn about a number of aspects of the wind, such as wind direction, wind speed and gusts. These are of course essential factors in kite surfing. After the explanation and explanation of all materials and the wind, the kite goes into the air and you learn to control the kite yourself. To control the kite for the first time and to feel the power of the wind is really cool!
On the second day you will continue with different exercises of downwind body dragging and upwind body dragging.Today it may be that the wind is slightly stronger / weaker than on your first day of lessons. That is why you will go with a smaller / larger kite. This way you learn to deal with different wind conditions and different kite sizes. Once you have successfully done all body drag exercises, the kiteboard can be brought in for the water start. The real work is about to begin!
On the third day of the course you will further perfect the water start and sail your first meters. The starting position of the kite, your posture and position of your kiteboard are the points for attention. In addition, you must be able to do the water start in two directions. At the end of day 3, the goal is to have really stood and surfed your first meters!
Day four of the kitesurf course you continue most of the time to continue kitesurfing at half wind, a “rakje” this is also called. The intention is to return to the same point from where you started. Points of attention are improving the position of your kite and bar, adjusting your posture and the direction of your kiteboard. Today there is also self-rescue on the program, where you learn to rescue yourself from an emergency.
On the last day of your five-day course, upwind kite surfing and a sliding transistion are on the program. The ultimate goal is of course to be able to cruise upwind, just like you do with a sailboat. This is even better and faster if you also learn the technique of the sliding transition. In addition, with the change of direction you stay above the water at all times, this is a super nice feeling to be able to completely independently and once you have mastered this you can call yourself a real kite surfer! Today the self-rescue on the program, while learning you to save yourself from an emergency.
