It is essential that you take at least one introductory lesson otherwise you will be endangering yourself and those around you. Unlike other schools in the kitesurfing lessons Perth area we believe that to learn efficiently the group size of the lesson must be kept to a minimum, so lessons will be conducted with only two students per instructor. This guarantees that you will get the time and attention you need and gives you greater value for money.

1st Lesson

The requirements for your first lesson are a willing attitude and that’s it!!! In this lesson we will take you through the setup and safety aspects of the larger inflatable kites before its time to hit the water. Here you will learn further kite flying skills with 6m2 – 9m2 kites on half length lines. These skills include water re launch safety release, launching/landing before finishing up with a solo body drag and self rescue. The first lesson is the most important as it teaches you all the basic procedures and skills you need to kite safely.

2nd Lesson

This lesson takes everything you learnt in the first lesson and applies them to bigger kites and more power and gets your ready for the board. Now that you have learnt all the safety techniques you will spend more time in this lesson learning the skills you need to fly the kite with a board. There are a lot of subtle tips about body positioning and kite flying that you will need to have as second nature before you’re ready for the board. You also need to show that you’re capable of retrieving your board before you get to try the board.

3rd Lesson

Having completed all the other necessary kite flying skills it is time for you to put it all together and use the board. In this lesson you are one on one with our instructors using full length lines and a slightly bigger kite.
