Kitesurf Lessons

Beginner Lessons

Working to the latest safety standards from the IKO and the BKSA, our beginner courses are designed to make learning to kitesurf easy for everyone. For those of you that are committed then our three day course is our jump right in option to take you from the basics to getting you up and cruising.

 

If you want to see if kitesurfing is really for you then just try out the first day of the course which works great as a taster. If and when you are ready to take on the next two days you can just top up for the remainder of the three day course. All our beginner lessons run on a 2-2-1 basis with the instructor. If you find yourself in the lucky situation where you are one on one with your instructor then course length will be reduced. The beginner course is designed to fit into 3 days. It is possible to fit the course into a 2 day period if you book in for a 1 on 1 beginner course.

This shorter downwinder gives you the option to explore all the individual spots that Watamu has to offer. Stopping at the Turtle Reef Sandbar on the way to take in the impressive views that Watamu has to offer. A great way to get familiarized with Watamu when you arrive on your kitesurfing holiday.
