Previous Day: Check weather/wind prediction for next day. Arrange time to meet at kiteboarding academy next day.

Typical Session: Meet at kiteboard center, prepare and load kitesurfing equipment into vehicle. Head into the desert area next to the sea for 1st kite session.

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.

End of session: Recap on what you have learned, all help pack up the equipment and the head off back to the kite center. 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.
