Independent riding

Do you want to know how it feels to take your first steps on the water? If you choose this class, you will lay the perfect foundation for your kiteboarding development. We begin with a trainer kite on the beach, but quickly move to the water for the real work. After you have gained good control of the kite and you can do body dragging on both sides, we can grab the board and you can try to sail. Below you can read more about this kite surfing lesson on Bonaire.
