KITESURFING

Kitesurfing is a surface water sport combining aspects of wakeboarding, snowboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding, skateboarding and gymnastics into one extreme sport. A Kitesurfer harnesses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard, with or without footstraps or bindings.

You’re in Safe hands, our instructors are certified by International Kiteboarding Organisation!

You'll be participating in a water sports activity - expect to get wet! Acceptable clothing includes; swim suits or quick dry athletic wear. It's also handy to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Two piece swim suits are allowed, kindly dress conservatively while arriving to and leaving the station in respect of the local culture. Due to safety regulations, arrival in incorrect attire will cause you to loose your session without a refund. For more information please refer to the Useful Information page on our website: www.beachculture.me/usefulinformation
If you cannot swim that is okay! All you will need to do is book a private one on one session with our certified instructor. Contact us now on: +973 3303 6362 to book your session and get started!
Due to the nature of our sessions, weight restrictions do apply. The recommended maximum weight is 100kg | 200.5lbs | 15.7 stone. If you are an athletic person and feel confident in participating, book now. Please note, if your instructor feels your safety will be at risk they have the right to refuse your session without a refund or reschedule. We recommend book a private one on one session if you're overweight in order to get the best experience possible.
Seems simple, but varies according to your weight and what wind strength you will be out in, and what conditions your local spot will offer. Generally starting with a “Freeride” with full safety features will help you progress quickly and safely. In most cases this will be the Kite you stick with as it offers performance with ease of use. For boards you are looking again to start with the Freeride board which has generous flex, and enough width and length. Speak to us or your local shop to get the right information on what you need. Beware of local advice as some will guide you into gear which you may not be ready for.
Compare it to driving a car! By a proper practical and theoretical education plus a responsible attitude, risk gets minimized. A complete and professional schooling is the base requirement. Only a kiteschool is able to teach you decent handling of equipment and how the evaluate miscellaneous situations.
Besides the ability to swim, nothing else is required. Although physical and mental fitness is advantage, we will provide easy access for everyone, not that sporty.
First of all: Wind plus at least one Kite including a bar and a board. As you own more kites of different sizes, you can handle different wind conditions while on the waves.
Generally, we provide you all basics within the first two days and you should be able to get a few meters of surfing without falling within the first three to five days. Of course, talent, skills, motivation and natural predisposition influence the progress of improvement. Don't forget, if it takes some time...don't become desperate, be patient! That's how we all did it! 🙂
