How are working the Kite Lessons in Villasimius
In Villasimius, the kite course for beginners are organized and divided in 4 steps with whom you will progress till the water start :
- Step 1 on the beach, 2 hours) – Theory + Setting Up of the Kite + Control of The Kite
- Step 2 (on the beach, 2 hours) – Control of The Kite (Phase 2) + Similation of the Water start
- Step 3 (on the water, 2 hours) – Re-Launch of the kite from the water + Body Dragging (with and without board)
- Step 4 (on the water, 2 hours) – Water Start Phase.
To the people that will book the first 2 steps, after the first 3 hours of lessons (step 1) we will lend you (for the rest of the day) a Kite Trainer (totaly safe to be used after 3 hours of lesson) in order you could improve your kite control! In this way, at the second lesson (step 2), you will have a plus for continuing your kite course!
Step 3 and Step 4 of Kite Lessons will be on the water. In these phases we will use a boat to move away from the beach and from bathers in order to be able to kitesurf safely. In these two phases, we will use two way radio helmets: Instructor and student can communicate with each other and stay always connected.
If you are not a beginner, you should tell us which is your kite level (we can properly understand which is your kite level if you tell us how many hours of lessons you have already done), then we could decide togheter wich is the best lessons for you.
