1) It’s social
Kiteboarders travel around the world for good winds and safe places to kiteboard. You are able to meet women from all over the world by joining a women’s kite camp. Many of our kite camps have been a blend of European, American, Canadian and Mexican citizens…all of whom came together to learn to kiteboard. Share your kite experience together and enjoy learning about other women from around the world. Keep in touch after your La Ventana Kite experience and you can travel to visit each other’s home kite spots.
2) It’s Less expensive
Group lessons are always less expensive. It’s nice to spend less on lessons and spend a bit more on your kite gear. During a three day kite camp you will be given skills to practice on your own in pairs. We familiarize you with the beach and are sure you are comfortable launching and landing so you can safely get in and out of the water. Even if you go out and just practice body dragging it will help you feel more confident if you choose to take more lessons after the camp is over.
3) It gives you a realistic baseline
We often have couples who learn together and for some reason the men have often already taken lessons but choose to learn with their partners. This creates an unrealistic base to compare yourself to.Learning in a group of beginners and other women you will feel no pressure to learn fast or slow you can progress at the speed you are comfortable with. We ensure you set the pace. Plus, The group always seems to give extra encouragement when a new kiter is feeling anxious or scared. It allows you to surround yourself with people who are reaching for the same goal.
4) It allows you to learn from each other
The group lessons can give you extra encouragement to go for it. You can learn a lot by watching someone else learn. Make the same mistakes, achieve the same accomplishments and be there to support each other. It helps speed up your learning process!
5) It gives you a group of practice buddies
After the lessons you will have a group of people who are probably at or close to the same level as you are. Even over long distances, you can help each other be accountable to keep practicing after the lessons. If you can, practice together by making kite dates and sticking to it. Until you are both totally confident kiters, we recommend having one person in the water while the other walks the beach to keep an on eye on you, help you to land your kite, and then switch.
