BASIC COURSE

From the first approach with a kite to the first emotion with the board.

OUR SURPLUS VALUE
- one-to-one lessons, for a fast and safe learning
- we use support boats, so the instructor is always close to the student
- full equipment is included (kite, board, wetsuit, life jacket, trapezio, ecc.)
- we practice far away from the beach, so we have better wind and all the free space we need
- we use radio-helmets, so that we can always stay in contact with the students when they are in the water

DURATION
During the course there are moments of theory on the ground, and practical exercises, first by boat and then into the water, so it takes from 4 to 6 hours per student. Probably it will take 2 days to complete the program, but sometimes it's possible to complete the program in just one day.

PARTICIPATION FEE
The participation fee for the basic course amount to 260 euro. If you're not already a member of our club, you also have to consider the entry-fee of our association (€20).
