The trade winds blow from as early as March through to Sept, summer is the prime season however there is sufficient wind for courses to run all year.

KITESurf School & KITESurf Lessons
The Kitesurf School was formed in 1999 by the owner of the already established and popular Windsurf centre in Corralejo (founded in 1987). In 2002 the Kitesurf School became an official IKO accredited kitesurf centre.
The coaching program has been developed according to the IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) guidelines and the aim is for students to become safe, responsible and self-sufficient kitesurfers.
The Kitesurf Instructors are qualified via the International Kiteboarding Organisation (or VDWS equivalent) and all have the necessary skills and patience to help you progress in a safe but fun enviroment at your own pace. For safety reasons and to ensure you get the attention you need on dry land and in the water, the kitesurf Lessons have a low student to instructor ratio. All students are placed with an instructor who specialize in teaching at a particular level.
All courses are run in open water with boat assistance. In summer this tends to be at Flag Beach and in winter months the location of the course may change to suit local wind and swell conditions. All the equipment used by the Kitesurf School is provided by leading kitesurf brand NORTH and the equipment used for the courses is specifically designed for beginners and intermediates with ease of use, progression and safety being the key factors.
The Learn to Kitesurf program is specifically aimed at those who have never kitesurfed before or those who have already done some power kiting or beach flying. Our kiteboard discovery program covers all of the steps on IKO level 1 and some from IKO level 2 including: safety, wind patterns, direction and effects, local kitesurfing environment, equipment setup, launching and landing techniques, piloting/flying a trainer and 4 line kite and mastering the wind window, body dragging, self rescue, relaunch and initial water start techniques.
At the end of the course, students are assesed and given a official IKO Kiteboarder Card stating the level achieved. This can then be used to further your instruction or rent equipment at any recognised IKO centre.
