Kitesurfing progression classes in Cape Verde
You have already done a few hours of kitesurfing and you want to continue?
Here are the details of our “intermediate” courses that will allow you to get back to basics and progress quickly.
The course takes place with an instructor and one kite per pupil in private lessons or 1 kite and 2 pupils in group lessons (2 or 3 people maximum).
• Safe navigation:
You learn to be more confident in your ability to kite. You get up with each waterstart, you improve your kite flying technique, you go in both directions sides without falling down. You learn priority rules when navigating and to ride in the middle of other kitesurfers. You learn how to self-rescue so you get out of difficult situations (breaking some gear, the wind drops, an injury).
• Going upwind:
You learn to edge and steer your body in order to go upwind. This then allows you to ride in all directions (downwind, sidewind, upwind).
• Transitions, tack transfers:
We teach you how to turn around, make switch transitions, jibes, so you improve your navigation technique.
• First jump:
Kitesurfing is a 3-dimensional sport. You are autonomous and ride both ways without any problem while going upwind, then it’s time to learn how to fly. You learn how to make your first jump and land it safely.
Then add style to your jumps with a grab or a rotation.
