TEST DAY
A real lesson in piloting the kite, in which you will learn to manage the kite safely, alongside the instructor, thanks to the support of our boats: in practice, this is the first lesson of our basic course. It starts from the foundamental commands, to understand the behavior and responsiveness of the kite, then move on to the various maneuvers: then you will learn to take off and land the kite, and you will try to keep it in the neutral zone. A this time you will start to handle the power of the kite, using both the de-power system and the kite-speed to generate traction. These drills are held on board the boat, in complete safety, assisted by the instructor. The participation fee is 90 € per person. If you're not already a xkite member, also calculates our membership fee (10 Euros ).

KIDS KITE CAMP
The kite-camp are courses dedicated to children and teenagers, aged 10 to 16 years, both beginners and experts, with the formula "all inclusive" which includes room and board. The camp combines sport and fun in an intense group life experience: the students spend five days full-immersion, away from home, experimenting with independence from their parents and habits of everyday life.
From day to day, depending on the wind, we can alternate practical exercises in water and ground theory moments (meteorology, aerodynamics, maintenance and repair of the equipment, etc.). During the exercises in the water, the children are divided into groups as homogeneous as possible by age and experience. We adapt the equipment, teaching tools and exercises according to age, physical characteristics and technical level of each student. The guys just starting out will work mainly on the control of the kite, the basic maneuvers, and self rescue techniques. Most experts will train with advanced kiting techniques.
In addition to educational and sports activities are also provided moments of relaxation and play, to encourage socialization and the emergence of new friends.

Start: monday 9 a.m. - End: friday 6 p.m.
