Welcome to our kite school webpage www.kitesurfingmallorca.com
The main objective of our kite-club is to ensure the lowest economic cost in the learning of kitesurfing for our club members, as well as to achieve this goal in the safest possible environment during their practices.
Our kitesurfing courses are usually divided into 3 phases of 3 hours each. The aim of the course is to optimize your learning progressively, receiving and helping you memorizing the necessary explanations, while keeping the safety of the student at all times.
Progression and success of our kitesurfing lessons can either be achieved in 3, 6 or 9 hours.
Obviously, this achievement it’s as result of personal skills, memory, and the ability to get the most out of its kite lessons by each student.
The graphic kite training time distribution above shows an ideal one-day 3-hour kite lessons period
1.- The average of students achieving this is 10-20 percent
2.- Between 30 to 60 percent of students require 2 days or 6-hour kite training
3.- The 80 per cent of students require 3 days or 9 hours of kitesurfing lessons
The first part of our kitesurfing lessons includes a theory to comprehensively explain to our kite students the efficient handling of a kite through the use of the kite bar. Understanding and memorizing this part is the key to success.
Once the technical explanations are finished, the practice is carried out in shallow waters.
The theoretical lesson is approximately 15 minutes. The next step in our progression of kitesurfing is to go through different models and sizes of kite to the practice of bodydrag and positioning in the kiteboard to start with the waterstart technique.
In the last stage of our kitesurfing lessons, the student will practice how to waterstart efficiently, stand on the kiteboard and enjoy the first rides in both directions.
We will keep your practices monitored until the end of your lessons, offering our students advice and clinics until they improve their kitesurfing stance and become efficient.
