Embat is the name of the sea breezes originated locally by the heating of the land with respect to the sea temperature. Learning kitesurfing in Mallorca in May it is 90 per cent guarantee as the thermal -Embat- blows most of the days.
It is also possible to receive winds from West-Northwest or North and sometimes from South switching in the afternoon to Southwest but unless there’s a deep low or high pressure area imposing themselves, the Embat will super impose over it.
This is basically the text we emailed to Peder and Hilde when they contacted Asociacion Aprende a Navegar looking for advice to book their kite course, considering that they had just two free days to dedicate to learn kitesurfing as they were travelling with the family.
Peder and Hilde became a kite club members of Asociación Aprende a Navegar on the 5th of May and they took the two days, 6 hours kite lessons, the first 3 hours which are included on their membership fee and one extra session of 3 more hours of kite tuition.
Peder and Hilde learned quite fast the basics of control of the kite and on their third hour of lessons
they even dared to start with their first waterstarts.
Through the following pictures we will see how Peder and Hilde are starting their kite lessons, progressing
and standing up on the kiteboard for just a few meters but in fact incredibly early for what normally takes to perform the first waterstarts.
Peder first waterstart after just 2 and half hours of kite lessons as he’s gaining distance and riding quite fluently
Now, after realizing that the ride towards the left suits him better
Peder happily, riding again fast and in control … and shortly, expectable end of his ride, he sunk, but with all honours. Congratulations Peder
