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

- 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

During the course, moments of theory on the ground alternate with practical exercises, for a total of approximately 5/6 actual hours of lessons, to which must be added the preparation times, the boat trip, and the alternation of the students (maximum three). To complete the program, therefore, it takes one or two days, even if not consecutive.

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).
