Kitesurfing Lessons - Independent

This level of the course is focused on honing your riding skills, controlling the board to maintain speed, riding in both directions and consistent edging. 

Depending how well you progress, the next step is to get the right pressure on the board and start to ride upwind. Once this is completed you will be able to ride out and come back to the same spot! No more walking upwind with the ‘walk of shame’.

We will teach you the ‘right of way’ which keeps everyone on the water happy without crashing into each other! Transitions are next, where you can change direction without stopping

At this level it is time to practice for most people, but if you reall want to push on, then self launch, riding toeside (where you use the board the other way around) and jumping will complete your IKO course program.
