Kitesurfing

Not much – just yourself, something snug to wear under a wetsuit, and a towel and some warm clothes to put on afterwards.

We recommend private lessons if you’ve never tried kitesurfing before as this gives you 100% of the instructor’s attention, but semi private lessons can work too. It’s probably best to wait until you have a basic level of competence to try group lessons as they might not give you the level of attention you need at first.

Kitesurfing is safe as far as anything is safe – if you do it properly, listen to the instructor, and follow the safety guidelines then it’s really unlikely anything will go badly wrong.

Nope, we cover that.

That’s pretty unlikely in Tarifa, but if it does happen we will either reschedule your lesson, offer you another activity to an equal value or refund you if you paid in advance. It’s not your fault if the wind doesn’t blow!

That depends on a you really, but usually for a beginner 3-4 hours a day is about right.

No, but anything that helps you with balance might be useful. That could be anything from snowboarding to ballet to football. But nothing’s necessary.

That’s a pretty individual thing, but most people are up and riding on their own after about 12 hours of instruction. Some sooner, some later. But we’ll get you there.

Kids learn particularly quickly, but because of the power of the kites we’re careful about teaching the younger ones. We have developed a special methodology for kids lessons, but usually we recommend they are at least six year old before learning.

No – a basic level of physical fitness is helpful, but kitesurfing is not especially physically demanding unless you want to try some of the more exotic tricks and jumps.
