Kite Control & Body-dragging - The cornerstone to learning kitesurfing.

The next step picks up where the first lesson finished and gets you straight in the water. It starts with body drag techniques such as upwind and downwind body dragging (this is the skill to teach you to retrieve the board after a crash without a board leash). We incorporate one hand control at this point, releasing the bar in the water then retrieving the bar and re-launching from the water. We include a practical self rescue emergency scenario.

This part of the course is all about becoming stable with a fully sized power kite. Bodydragging is the ability to go up wind or against the wind. KNS instructors are very hand-ons in this part of the course because we want you to learn the fast and safest way possible. That is why we stay with our students until they can prove they are stable with the kite, change direction smoothly and efficiently, and have shown their instructor you can water re launch your kite unassisted. The amount of time spent in this part of the course varies between students.

What you will learn:

    Launching & landing procudures
    Determine the wind direction
    Wind window/ Introduction of the clock system
    Power Zone and neutral areas
    Launching & Landing
    Safety Awareness
    Dealing with the shorebreak and other kites
    "Let go of Bar" reflex action
    Emergency Self Rescue (practical)
