Your perfect and safest way to start into the sport. We will show you all the important basics and self-rescue-techniques, so you can practise after the course on your own without endangering yourself or others. The main part of the course will take place on the water but we will provide the necessary theoretical knowledge, e.g. priority rules. At the end you will go through an exam to obtain an internationally valid kite license. This is necessary if you want to rent equipment from kite centres or perform kiteboarding on inland lakes. The 12 hrs basic course (within 3-5 days) is mainly recommended for people who have no major board sport experience. If you are already experienced with board sports, the 8 hrs course (within 2-3 days) should be enough.
