Activity description

Go for a kitesurfing initiation session on one of the most popular spots of the Opal Coast, the magnificent Bay of Wissant, near Calais.

Bed&Kite's qualified instructors will take you to the Bay of Wissant and in particular to the Pointe aux Oies, two kitesurfing spots with magnificent landscapes: English-style cliffs, beaches and dunes as far as the eye can see, clear water and impressive marine fauna for a superb kitesurfing lesson.

The qualified and experienced kitesurfing instructors will teach you everything you need to know about kitesurfing in a friendly atmosphere, whether you are a beginner or an experienced kitesurfer.

The lessons are based on a pedagogical and individual approach. Each course is adapted to the participants and their abilities. You will learn how to: analyse the wind, manoeuvre your wing, manage and control the pull, relaunch, glide, safety systems (active/passive) etc. Even, for the most gifted: gaits, transitions and first jumps!

And if you want to spend the night in a local gîte? Ask Marc, your instructor, for information about the flat offered by Bed&Kite.
