Southcore Kite school BEGINNER COURSE

The beginners course of Southcore kite school Tarifa  consists of three main teaching sessions which we normally stretch over three days. The duration of each session is around 2 until 3 hours in dependance to your progress and conditions. Moreover the duration of the course mainly depends on its type. You have to keep in mind that private lessons will always be more efficient than group clases. Therefore we generally recommend private and semi-private lessons.

Session 1: Beach/ 2-3 hours

After you have completed the check in at our school the course starts with a small theoretical introduction to the world of kitesurf at our center. Our instructor will explain you the basic characteristics of the so called “wind window” which will be your flying area during the next two hours. Our teaching aims are the following

  • 2 and 4 line kite control mounting / starting / landing
  • Two and one handsteering of the kite
  • Walking / point landings
  • Power dives left and right side of the wind window
  • Experiential flying in the different zones of the wind window

Session 2: Water / Bodydrag

  • Balacing and positioning exercises with the kite
  • One handed side drags to the left and right side

If you have internalized all the exercises and the water start for you is no longer a problem, then your next goal will be upwind or upwind. Otherwise, you play as ever and a walk on the beach you will not be spared. Also in this and other learning processes we will be happy to accompany you.
