This progression kitesurf course in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain is perfect for those who have some experience but want to kitesurf independently
There is a natural mystic blowing through the air…
This progression kitesurf course in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain is designed for those who have some experience but are not fully independent yet. We will cover all necessary steps to reach this level. Of course we will focus on getting up on the board and riding! But we will also look at (re)launching the kite, recovering the board, walking with the kite… Everything you need to learn to become an independent kitesurfer!
The lessons will take place in Castelldefels, the best kitebeach of Barcelona. Its a very long and wide beach with lots of space, so very good for beginners. Also the water is very safe as there are no currents or rocks. Cruising on top of the water, sharing the sun and the wind, lets go!
The progression kitesurf course in Castelldefels, Barcelona, Spain is divided into two classes of 2,5hrs each. We always adapt the lesson to your needs and learning speed. The following overview is an indication of what you can expect during the course:
LESSON 1, 1.1
Kite control and warming up
We start with the setup of the kite, a bodydrag and some relaunches, just to make sure you feel confident and safe with the kite today - as every day is different in kitesurfing! Also we will cover how to launch and land your kite on the beach and how to control the kite with one hand (as the other hand needs to be free for the board handling).
Ready for take-off
We will show you how to handle the kite and board at the same time: walking into the water while in control of both kite and board, putting the board on your feet, making sure you understand how to balance your body, and doing some small exercises to get you up on the board and riding short distances.
LESSON 2, 2.1
In this warm up part of the lesson, you will learn how to use your body and kite to bodydrag in an upwind direction to recover the board which you maybe lost after a crash. You will need to know this upwind bodydrag to become independent.
We will focus on your personal development and give you all the board tips necessary while constantly practising the waterstart. Focusing on the right body and board position, riding stance and kitecontrol while riding. The last class is for you to become completely independent and should make you feel ready to continue advancing on your own!
