KITEBOARDING LESSONS – TOP LEVEL INSTRUCTORS – RADIO HELMETS  
SAFE, PERSONAL, FUN

We are passionate about kitesurfing and love to share the stoke so that many can enjoy this incredible lifestyle with us. We believe anybody is able to learn how to kitesurf, from young to old, with or without previous experience in watersports. If you believe it, you’ll achieve it! 

We offer different packages of kiteboarding lessons, each designed to your individual needs. When you choose Kiteboarding Bonaire, be confident that our instructors have all gone through an extensive training course to assure a personalized methodology of training. Learning to kiteboard is best learned by breaking the process down into smaller, measurable skill sets fit to your learning needs. 

Beginner / Discovery

Curious if this is the sport for you? Discover the basics of kitesurfing in this introduction lesson: safety, wind direction, confidence and kite control. After a short introduction at our bus you’ll start off on the beach together with your instructor where you’ll learn how to launch, control and land with a trainer (smaller) kite. Once you've get the hang of it we set up a real kite and hit the water where you'll learn body dragging (the power generated by the kite which moves you forward on the water.) We adjust the beginner lesson to your personal needs and learning curve and use the lesson time as efficient as possible.

YOU WILL LEARN:
-What the safe conditions for kiteboarding are.
- What the 'wind window' is: there's a zone where your kite is pulled hard (power zone) and a neutral zone, where your kite isn't pulled so hard.
- Safely launching and landing the trainer kite.
- Controlling the trainer kite in the air.
- What to do if you lose control of the kite.
-Safety procedures for a real kite.
- Setup of the kite.
- Controlling the kite in the water.
- Body dragging to the left and to the right.
