Kitesurfing is one of the most beautiful and easiest water sports to learn. To kitesurf, we use a kite, which is our propulsion, and a board on which we ride. You generally need 10-15 hours of lessons in order to safely master kitesurfing alone. Our professional IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) instructors will guide you through the classes in a safe and pleasant way, adjusting the training regime to your predispositions.
At SKYHIGH Watersports Center, we use the latest, safest and most progressive IKO training system, witch allows us to use an inflatable kite during your very first class.
In the first hours of training, we will use a bar (control system) with short lines (as short as 2.5 m long), thanks to this the kite has very little power, it does not pull aggressively and is very safe, in this manner the steering of the kite works the same way as it would flown on longer lines. This innovation in the training system also allows us to teach children from 6 -7 years of age and relatively low weights.
Another positive aspect of the IKO system is our goal to make you an independent kitesurfer. Our instructors will show you how to get full control of the kite with all safety elements (SAFTY SYSTEM). after completing all the kite steering exercises, you move onto the different variations of body dragging.
Body-drag is an inseparable element of kitesurfing. It is a way of moving in the water without a board, using the power of a kite. We use it to move around, find a board or return to the beach when, for example, the wind drops. Body-drag training is one of the coolest stages of training, as the student starts to feel that the kite is really pulling and you are in control of it. Once you are done with all your body-drag exercises, you are ready for the waterstart with the board.
Starting with the board is one of the most difficult elements during the training, here the trainee must control the kite and at the same time concentrate on the correct positioning of the board. Synchronising your arms and legs is difficult at first, but you quickly get used to it and suddenly everything starts working.
When your waterstarts are good, we start downwind riding on the board and controlled stop. Next we will teach you how to ride upwind, which is our main end goal in training.
Going upwind allows you to freely control your course and gives you the opportunity to return to the same place on the beach from where you started.
When you master the above elements, you will become an Independent Kitesurfer which will open up great opportunities offered by the sport, such as freestyle elements, switch riding, jumping, wave riding- kitewave and recently the very popular Foil where you levitate on a board with a hydrofoil wing. .
The equipment we use are the latest Duotone and Ozone kites. The boards are from a Polish brand Nobile and Duotone.
The spot where we teach lessons – Porto Botte is characterised by blue shallow water with a sandy bottom, a sandy beach and a side-on shore wind, this combination is perfect for teaching and recreational kiting. Thanks to the thermals and the V-effect, our Porto Botte spot provides good wind conditions for kitesurfing nearly every day. The statistics are 70% chance of wind on our spot.
Our spot is an Authorised Kitesurfing Zone – KITE ZONE ONLY, which is intended for kitesurfers only, windsurfers ride in a different place, thanks to this the spot is safe and kite friendly. You will also find a shaded chill out area where you can take a break from the sun.
We also have a RESCUE vessel, which will take care of your safety whilst on the water.
Individual lessons are the most popular type of kitesurfing training. Lessons are one on one with the instructor and this is the fastest way to become kitesurfer!
