Girl On A Board Kite School is a specialized school that teaches everyone. Our mission is to empower through sport. We focused on hiring instructors who love to teach and who want to create an atmosphere that is welcoming, safe and fun! Our teachers are all professionals and have all been certified to teach through IKO International Kiteboarding Organization. We focus on empowering you by teaching the why's behind what you do. We also ensure you leave us ready to practice on your own by covering essential skills such as launching and landing and getting in and out of the water on your own. To ensure our students learn as quickly as possible we use two way radio helmets, jet ski support, and we use brand new Cabrinha Switchblade kites. We offer lessons in English, German and Spanish
DAY ONE LESSONS
We have found the quickest way to teach is to start with land training. We skip the trainer kite as it can develop bad habits instead we use a 5 meter kite and short lines so that you are able to develop the confidence, muscle memory and learn the theory while you are flying the kite. On day one we teach you how to set up the gear properly, to read the wind and weather/ beach conditions to identify when it is safe to kite. At the end of the lesson we teach you how to launch and land the kite and self rescue.
DAY TWO LESSONS
Everything you learned on day one we get to practice in the water Tandem. This is usually the most fun as we get to play in the water together. We use full size kites and short or long lines depending on the weather. There are a few additional skills that you need to learn such as body dragging up wind and getting in and out of the water on your own.
DAY THREE LESSONS
This is the day!! You will be on your own with the kite and with a radio helmet or with jet ski support depending on what you book. You get to show off your kite control with adding the new element of the board. For some just coordinating the kite and the board is enough while others are able to control the kite and the board and are able to practice water starts and riding! Book your advanced lesson to practice riding upwind or to learn new tricks
