Our Group Lessons are based on the IKO lesson plan to teach you all the basics from total beginners up to practicing in the water. IKO level 1 & 2 should be your choice to create a good foundation.

One IKO instructor holds our Group Lessons with 2 students on one Kite. The International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) splits the way to learn how to practice Kiteboarding in 4 levels. Level 1 Discovery, Level 2 Intermediate, Level 3 Independent and Level 4 Advanced. In this small group of 2 students in IKO level 1&2, you get all theoretical and practical exercises to be able to handle the equipment, do the setup, fly the kite safely, enter and exit the water with the kite in the air, control the kite with the board on your feet and practice watersart. After this course, you can either continue in a group or in private lessons to practice riding in all directions including upwind to become an independent Kiteboarder. All students are certified with the IKO according to the level they reached throughout the course.
