Kite lesson Hoorn / Schellinkhout

For the region of North Netherlands we are giving kitesurfing lessons at Schellinkhout, Medemblik or Andijk. depending on the direction of the wind we deviate to one of these locations. All these kitesurf spots are located on the IJsselmeer, have flat and long shallow water which greatly accelerates the learning process of kitesurfing. At the kitesurfing spots we have a lot of space at our disposal which makes it perfect for kitesurfing lessons!

The day before the lesson it is communicated what is the best location and were the lesson is given.

We start the day with a brief introduction. The instructor explains the current weather conditions and briefly explains what we are going to do today. After an introduction we will start as soon as possible.
