Description

Come and join us for a Windmadness Kite Boarding taster lesson for 2 hours.

This is a ideal little course to see if kiteboarding is for you! Harness yourself to one of the large kite’s you see scattered across the sky down St Ouens at the weekends.

In this course, we will get you piloting a Kiteboarding kite for the first time, explain the theory of the wind, the safety aspects of these kites and some basic setup techniques.

The course is run with 2 instructors to 4 students, you’ll all have a trainer kite to start off with, then when we move on the the bigger kites, you’ll have one between a pair, so this is the ultimate couples/friends course. Reason for this being that we are simply following our IKO standard’s/ethics of teaching.

Course layout is as follows :-

0-15 Minutes – introduction to kite flying, wind knowledge and weather info.

15-45 Minutes – Piloting of the trainer kite, basic steering, advance moves, launching and landing techniques.

45-75 Minutes – Assembling a Kiteboarding kite, learning the safety features, basic kite knowledge. (this is a key part of the lesson, so pay attention, as you’ll all be asked to do it after the instructor has!)

75-120 Minutes – Piloting of the kiteboarding kite for the first time, in pairs, so we can learn from each others mistakes. This will be performed safely in knee deep water, so this is where a wetsuit comes in handy.

What you need :- Please arrive 10 minutes early to sort out paperwork/payment. You’ll need suitable footwear IE Trainers, warm clothing, towel, water, sunscreen and a wetsuit (wetsuits available for a additional £5.00) :-)
