Fancy a beginner kitesurfing lesson in the beautiful spots of Bali? Then join the professional team of Rip Curl School of Surf!
The cool thing about kitesurfing is that you only need to rely on the wind to speed up on the sea! However, before setting out in wild waters under the sun, you might want to learn a few technics. The professional instructors of Rip Curl School of Surf will show you how to control your kite on the beach before letting you try into the water. The International Kite Organisation accredited campus in Sanur is where all the kitesurfing courses take place.
KITE SURFING LEVEL 1 - KITE CONTROL
First things first, to kitesurf you need to learn how to fly and control your kite. This first lesson is all about setting up your gear and safety procedures, along with theory lessons on wind pattern knowledge. You’ll strap into your harness and start with a 2-line trainer kite before moving on to a 4-line kite. At the end of the lesson, you should be able to manoeuver a beach launch.
KITE SURFING LEVEL 2 - WATER CONTROL
Next step is going into the water! This time, the objective is for you to be comfortable in the water with your kite.
Before getting on a board, you'll try manoeuvering your kite with body dragging skills. You’ll experience moving in the water without a board, turning left and right and recovering your kite.
When you're ready, you'll strap a board to your feet and start riding!
This section of the course will teach you about water starts, correct board positioning and riding with one hand on the harness.
