Training your kids

Level: Beginner (able to swim)

Kids are the future. And they are really fun to teach! Our team is appropriately certified and experienced in giving kids lessons.  We run multiple kids camps where we teach them how to kite, and we follow the IKO guidelines for teaching kids.

We use special equipment only for kids with kids harnesses, small kites and boards, short lines, kids buoyancy vests etc. This way we can teach your kids and get them out in the water in our super safe spot and show them the principles of kitesurfing.

Note: kids lessons usually progress at their own pace, and are restricted by factors such as wind conditions, weight of the student etc.  We try to keep the lesson fun, and never push it beyond the kids comfort zone.

Island Downwinders

Duration: 2hrs

Level: Level 2

The deal: We take you to a secret beach on the North-East corner of the island.  You set up your kites there and you get to kite downwind for 2 hours, exploring the magnificent landscapes, kiting in different sea conditions, trying all the tricks you want, while under the guidance and supervision of our instructors.  How cool is that?

It is an unforgettable experience, and you get to see parts of the island that you can only explore by sea.  The downwinders end up at Keros beach, in front of our school.

If it sounds too challenging for you, we also offer the mini downwinder sessions from our school until the South end of Keros bay.  These downwinders are shorter, less demanding, take less time, and are a perfect warm up for our main downwinder event.

Kiteboarding is an incredibly fun sport and it's a sport for everybody. Our goal is to make you an independent rider without skipping the important stuff, thus making it a super safe and exciting experience.
