Need to Know
Your chosen session will begin with a welcome and registration, followed by a short classroom session, including safety briefing and information on the equipment you will be using. You will learn the basics of kite operation and how to use the wind to maximise speed and power. Then, if your sport is based on land you will have your first attempt at traction kiting, using the kite as your power source and resisting its pull, the power is then transmitted to the wheels. You will practice steering your board or buggy, and manoeuvre the kite to pick up speed and stop. If you have chosen kite surfing, you will first watch your instructor as they show you how to launch, land and fly the kite before having a go yourself.
