Kite lessons

Luna Kite School teaches in accordance with the international guidelines of the IKO ( This international lesson plan helps the student to learn kitesurfing quickly and safely. A basic level 1 lesson lasts about 5 hours. To be …..safely at least 2 lessons are required. During the lessons safety is just as important as fun to us. Classes are taught in groups of at least 2, private lessons are also possible. At Luna Kite School we find small groups are much more practical, you can learn from each other and there’s also a lot less waiting time.
Although a smaller group is more practical …if you don’t mind waiting a little for your turn ….we also teach larger groups like company outings and team building, email us for more information. We offer the complete lesson plan from Level 1 to Level 3 for absolute beginners to advanced.

Especially for the basic course, the program is specifically tailored to the student. We have noticed that the levels can vary greatly by the sporting history of the student. Some have spent many years at sea windsurfing, some have wakeboarded, snowboarded, sailed or have pilot experience and others haven’t done much more than play pool or darts. Our instructors are diverse and suited for any level of experience. Our goal is to turn every beginner into a confident and safe kitesurfer. Safety is just as important as fun here.

After a short break it’s time to put on the wetsuit. The beach session will be put in to practise in the water with more "power", also called bodydrag. Here the Board is not involved.
