Kiteboarding Fundamentals

Beginner's Kiteboarding Course Day 1


GROUP: 4 HOURS | PHP 9,600

The Beginner’s Kiteboarding Course Day 1 is meant to give you a full introduction to kiteboarding – from learning the theory and understanding how kiteboarders use the kite to harness the power of the wind, to experiencing the full power of a Leading Edge Inflatable (LEI) kite.

You’ll start the course with a classroom lesson (normally drawn in the sand on the beach as a whiteboard), learning the theory behind kiting – determining the wind direction and how a kite works to generate lift and power. Your instructor will then go over the parts and how to set up a kite, important safety aspects, and teach the basics of kite steering.

After the theory fundamentals, you’ll move on to using a small trainer kite, where you will learn the skills to contol and steer the kite to generate power in both directions. Once your instructor is satisfied, you’ll move on to an inflatable kite – and this is where the fun starts – body dragging!

With an inflatable kite, you’ll walk out into the water to feel the power and lift from the kite by diving it in either direction to drag your body through the water. It is expected you will crash the kite (quite a few times) – which is where you will learn to re-launch the kite in the water.

If you think kiteboarding is for you and you’d like to give it a go with a board on your feet, you can sign up for the Beginner’s Kiteboarding Course Day 2. But if you’ve got your heart set on learning and going all the way, take our three-day Full Kiteboarding Course which will take you from a complete beginner to a competent and independent kiteboarder.
