IKO Kitesurf Lesson Plan

IKO Kitesurf Lesson Plan

Learning to kitesurf is like learning how to drive a car. Some will learn quicker, whilst some may take longer. On average most people require 3 x 2 hour lessons to reach a competent level to head out on their own.

Evaluation and certification card is issued at each lesson so you can see your own progression and the level you have reached. The details is recorded on the IKO website and can be accessed by yourself or any IKO Schools around the world. With the IKO Certification Card, students are able to rent equipment from any IKO centres around the world.

IKO is the largest kiting organisation that sets the teaching program and governs all kitesurfing schools around the world.

Some of our happy clients

I just want to say thank you to 96.5fm for my prize of a one hour stand up paddle board lesson. Went along yesterday and had a great time. The trainers were excellent.

You guys have a great setup over at Sandgate and I’ll definitely be coming back more in the future. I had a great time and the instructor was very clear, and with great communication. He clearly knows his stuff. As well as the main kiting techniques he passed on a lot of handy tips that will help a lot in the future. I feel like I made good progress and have a lot more confidence to get out there! Thanks again.

Me and my partner received paddle boarding lessons through the site Red Balloon from my relatives overseas. We were a bit reluctant at first because we haven't used the site before. We had never been paddle boarding and always wanted to. Let me tell you that the instructor was amazing. He was very clear in what to do and took us longer than what the voucher was for (didn't make us feel like we had to rush back because our time was up). It was the best time and I definitely recommend Surf Connect to anyone. It was relaxing, calming and a great way to start the day. Thanks again Surf Connect! We'll definitely be back :)

I had a great experience with quickly processed orders and exceptional support when I had an issue with a broken chicken loop. Highly recommend for their efficiency and customer care.

5 stars service! Instructors were awesome, patient, and super friendly. Equipment was top-notch and made the whole experience smooth. From zero to hero: went from newbie to feeling like a pro! Location was stunning - turquoise waters and sunny skies. Overall vibe was chill and fun. Already planning a round 2 - can't wait! 🏄‍♀️🌊
