Trip Kite Surfing

1. What is kitesurfing?
Kitesurfing is the fastest growing water sport on the planet in recent years. This consists of flying a kite with 4 lines, of variable size depending on the wind conditions. 

The kite is attached to your body via a harness around your waist.

So you can use the power of the kite and the wind to glide over the water.

Kite boards (Twin tip) are bi-directional: you can therefore move in both directions. 

2. Is kitesurfing dangerous?
Kitesurfing is considered an extreme sport; but with today's technologies in kite design and safety systems, it can be one of the safest water sports with proper and professional instruction. At TripKiteSurfing, we are focused on learning that, while being fun, is very focused on the safety of our students.

3. How long will it take me to be independent?

Everyone is different and learns at their own pace. On average, most students need 9 hours of lessons before they are comfortable on the board. Sometimes, some students are already learning to jump after 7 or 8 hours of lessons. 

4. Should I be very strong or very muscular?

Nope !! Kitesurfing is a sport that requires finesse and the kite pulls in the harness.  

Kiteboarding can be learned at any age and does not require any particular physical condition. 

5. What is a typical day like during our stays?

- Breakfast made of fruits and the healthiest products possible

- Departure for the kite spot, depending on the wind and the weather, lunch on site most of the time

- Make way for lessons and fun

- Return at the end of the afternoon to the place of accommodation

- Free time then meal around a good bottle of wine, the meals are made of fresh products, barbecue, fish and local products

- Free time or time together at the convenience of each

- Sleep, then we start again 

6. The essentials to take with you during our stays?

- Good mood, eager to learn and share

- Sunscreen 

- Cap or hat

- Swimsuit/swimming shorts

- Necessary clothing depending on the destination

- Generally not essential, but a light wetsuit or a shorty can be ideal depending on  the place and the time we are going

- On the other hand, all the material to learn and have fun is included in our formulas with lessons. 

7. What if the weather gets involved?

This happens extremely rarely, but what happens if the weather conditions do not allow participants to complete their ten hours of lessons? 

At TripKiteSurfing, we have a policy that differs from most of our colleagues. You will be reimbursed in the form of a Voucher in proportion to the number of hours of lessons not taken. In addition, a 30% reduction (excluding lessons) will be applied to your next trip with us. Again, this has almost never happened because we carefully choose our destinations and periods when we organize our stays. 


8. What to do in addition to kiting and during free time?

Although our stays are focused on learning kitesurfing, it is always possible to organize excursions and others on the side. Depending on the destination, this can be: cultural visits, horseback riding, rafting, ... depending on everyone's desires. 


9. Is it possible to take additional lessons after the initial 10 hours? 

Of course, if you wish and if the conditions are met, you can take more hours of lessons at the preferential rate of 30Euros/person/hour.

10. Health hazards

Given the health situation, if it turns out that it becomes complicated to travel for one of our trips, it goes without saying that you will be fully reimbursed. We also advise you to take out cancellation insurance for travel by plane or ferry.
