FAQs

KITESURFING FAQs

Kitesurfing is a wind-powered watersport consisting of a kite and a board to propel you across the water.

Some have never even put on a wetsuit. For safety reasons, you should be comfortable swimming in open water.

You don’t need lots of muscle strength. However, a general level of fitness will help you progress faster, give you more stamina and help you avoid injuries.

Beginner sessions are essential. As well as getting you up and riding as soon as possible, our experienced personell will guide you through all the essential safety procedures and all you need to know.

You will follow the below steps… not necessarily in this order:

  • Launching, landing and control
  • Body dragging and re-launching
  • Evaluating an area for safe kiting conditions
  • Understanding wind direction, strength and gusts
  • Setting-up and packing down your equipment
  • Safety procedures and what to do in case of an emergency
  • How to stay upwind
  • Rules and rights of way on the water

Most people need around 10-12 hours, or a few sessions to get up and riding along.

SUP FAQs

Stand up paddling is the kind of water sport in which you stand on a board and paddle. The board is bigger than a surf-board and a lot more stable. Stand up paddling is easy, fun and suitable for everyone with basic condition and balance.

Basic condition is enough for enjoying this easy and fun sport. We also require that you can swim, because there is a slight chance of falling from the board.  A smaller child can share the board with an adult, and the adult is fully responsible of the safety of the child.

Hopefully you won´t get wet, but there is a chance for that. The board does not flip over, so the only way to get wet is to lose your balance and fall off from the board.
We recommend to start the paddling on your knees. You can try all the turns first on a knee-stand-position and once you have become familiar with your board it is safe to stand up. We give you all the instructions you need before we send you to the water with the board.

Best clothing for supping is the kind of clothing you would use on a fast speed walking round. Don’t wear too loose clothing. Also, very long trousers are not recommended as they might get a bit wet. On a very warm day also swimming suits or bikinis are recommendable… as a bonus you´ll get a nice tan!

All beginners will get full instructions for supping before getting to water.  Just get ready and book a session.

WINDSURFING FAQs

First hour gets you a solid foundation in the basics. You definitely need more hours to enjoy sailing in higher winds.

You will be in the water and be active – so dress for comfort. Bathing suits and board shorts are fine, you may want to wear a rash guard or t-shirt you don’t mind getting wet for sun protection. We do have wetsuits to fit most people if they are necessary. You may want water shoes, but it is fine to go barefoot too. You will want to bring sunscreen.

No problem! We emphasize in technique and balance when learning to windsurf and we have beginner’s gear that is light and easy to handle.

Of course! Windsurfing is a great sport for people of all ages. The only requirements are that you are comfortable in water, able to get from a sitting or kneeling position to a standing one and that that you really want to learn to windsurf.

Yes. You do not have to be a fantastic swimmer, but you do need to be able to swim a short distance and most importantly be comfortable in water. We provide life vests if you request them ahead of time.
