RIDER PLUS

INDEPENDENT

Do you want to learn how to kiteboard by yourself?

Besides good kite control, the safety procedures, and riding on the board, we focus on independent riding in the independent riding plus class.

 

This means that you will be able to ride longer distances by yourself, and that you will be able to stay upwind (into the wind). 

The right body and board position are important skills you’ll learn to master.

If you’ve developed this technique and a feel for this, then you can ride by yourself!
