Off-load kites and other equipment. Learn how to set-up the kite equipment. Detremine wind direction and learn about the wind window and how kite reacts. Then it’s onto more theor a pre-flight check and then onto the exhilaration of launching and landing the kite by yourself. Fell the power and adrenalin kick in! Then it’s onto learning how to pilot the kite in the power zone, rigging and adjusting a 4 line kite and piloting with a harness.

Hopefully by this point you will be flipping out totally hooked on kiteboarding and can’t wait for the next session! Back to your accommodation and a hot shower to ease those aches and pains from a hard days kiting.
