Zero to Hero - Level 1, 2, 3 & Progression Kitesurfing Course

The Zero to Hero learn to kitesurf course includes all four lessons as below. We will do our best to make sure you get the lessons as close together as possible, your schedule and kitesurfing conditions permitting. We find having your lessons close together is the most effective way to learn kitesurfing. For example in an ideal world if there was a good forecast one week and we can fit all your lessons in to one week, then we will and you'll be ready to go practice kitesurfing on your own by the end of it. The more availability you have, the faster you will learn.  Completing your course only at weekends will always take longer than if you have the flexibility of being available 7 days a week. 1:1 Zero to Hero courses for people available 7 days a week usually take 2 to 4 weeks to complete and for those available only on weekends it usually takes 4 to 8 weeks to complete. 

All equipment, wetsuits, boots or shoes and protective gear is provided. However it's always more pleasant and comfortable to wear your own wetsuit if you own one, or if you feel like treating yourself to one have a look HERE. It's also a great idea to get yourself a trainer kite to practice on before your lessons, and inbetween lessons, you'll get better value for your time in your lessons if you have already mastered some basic kite flying skills. Have a look at our selection of trainer kites HERE.
