Tarifa's combination of glorious Andalusian sunshine and surfer friendly waves makes it a water sport lover's paradise. There's no better place in Spain for getting your first taste of the addictive world of kitesurfing.
This introductory course begins with an explanation of the basic principles of kitesurfing. We'll also cover safety and introduce you to your equipment.
Next, during the practical part of the course, we'll set you up on a static training kite on the sand, where you'll familiarise yourself with the different positions of the kite and its interactions with the wind.
If you have a double session booked, the next stage in your training will take place out on the water, where you'll practise a key manoeuvre known as the "body drag" (travelling through the water without your board).
If you've already completed two sessions, during your next lesson you'll return to the ocean, and begin practising the "water start" technique, which is where you launch yourself from the water using your board.
Our instructors will provide you with all the necessary equipment, so all you need to bring is enthusiasm! With a little persistence, you'll be master of Tarifa's famous winds and waves in no time!
