Kitesurf Course for Kids:

Basic Theory and Safety
and Kite control

This special course for children starts with a brief theoretical explanation of the functioning of the kite itself and of the other necessary elements for practicing the sport. The kids will see how to set-up the kite, by inflating it and connecting the lines to it. Also, the various safety systems of the bar will be demonstrated by the instructor, and tried themselves.

It is then time for learning to control the kite in the air. Special trainer kites will be used, generating less power for better safety, and with more reactivity for a faster learning process. They will practice by standing in shallow water, so no need to worry about falling down.

All the while the instructors will stay close to them, up to the point where the students will manage to the exercise autonomously
