What is kitesurfing?
Kiteboarding is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics all packed into one extreme and incredibly fun sport.
A kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard - with or without footstraps or bindings.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need much strength to kitesurf, as you are hooked into a harness at all times. Many young children kitesurf all the time with no problems whatsoever. Our youngest kitesurfing prodigy was merely 7 when he started!
Kitesurfing lessons Brisbane
Just like paragliding or flying, the learning process is quite hands on but also theoretical. It normally takes around 6-8 hours of one-on-one tuition before you become competent enough to take your own kite out on the water to improve your skills independently.
Most people take two-hour lessons at a time. In the first two hours, you will be in the water flying a full-size kite. You will be introduced to all the basic skills - from safety, trainer kite, set up, onto flying the big kite, and doing downwind body dragging.
Once you are capable of body dragging downwind and upwind without crashing the kite, as well as learning relaunching and self-rescue, it’s time to get you on the board.
The initial two hours will cost $200, then $180 (10% discount) for every subsequent every two-hour lesson. Once you’ve been trained you will need some kitesurfing equipment. Luckily, we can help! At the end of your lessons, you can claim back the costs of your first 4 lessons ($380) as discount when purchasing our equipment sets from our kitesurfing shop.
Lesson PlanFirst Lesson: 2 Hours
0-60minutes (on land): Safety, right of way, theory, location assessment, wind direction, set up, safety & depower systems, handling of equipment, launching and landing knowledge.
61-120minutes (on water): Launching and landing on water, relaunching, flying skills and body dragging.
Second Lesson: 2 Hours
121-240minutes (on water): The student will recap and practice everything that was learnt in the first lesson. Once the student has attained good control in their flying skills, i.e. not crashing the kite, not being out of control, and are able to body drag up and downwind successfully, the student is ready for board start. The second lesson will conclude with learning how to self-rescue.
Third Lesson: 2 Hours
241-360minutes (on water): In this lesson, the student should be able to demonstrate all skills and basic knowledge learnt in the previous 2 lessons: from setting up by themselves, launching, landing, flying skills, body dragging to getting up on the board.
Similar to driving, some people pick it up fairly quick, some need a few more lessons to have good confidence and control. Based on your performance during these lessons, your instructor will advise you whether or not you are ready to purchase our own equipment and go on your own, or if you still need some further instruction.
