Simon Hiemer kitet mit einem Foil am Gardasee
Voraussetzung ist eine gute Kitekontrolle und es wird etwas Vorerfahrung mit einem Directional Board empfohlen (kann bei uns aber auch im Einsteiger-Foilkurs erlernt werden). Auch fortgeschrittene Kitesurfer sollten einen 3 bis 5 Tageskurs wählen um das Gefahrenpotenzial durch korrekte Schulung und richtiges Material deutlich zu verringern.

Wir empfehlen den Privatkurs um das Kitesurfen mit dem Foil besonders schnell & sicher zu erlernen! Durch gezielte Tipps können wir direkt auf Dich eingehen und einen schnelleren Lernerfolg beim Foilkiten durch ständige Betreuung erreichen.

Course Information

Daily schedule kite course

Registration & Introduction

We will meet at 12:00 on the first day of the course at the kite center on the grounds of Camping Monja in Brenzone. First we get to know each other and take care of all the necessary organizational points such as registration and payment to guarantee a smooth running of the kite course.

Ein Kitesurf Schüler lacht in die Kamera

Theory unit & material science

Now we prepare together the material for our practice session and you get to know our kite equipment as well as the safety system. Afterwards we will discuss the theoretical basics which you will need later for the water.

For the advanced kiter among you and participants in the private kite course we organize a separate theory. We will individually cater to your personal level and prepare you for your next kite session.

Der Kitelehrer gibt Kitesurf Theorie und Materialkunde

Practice session on the water

We go on the water already on the first course day depending on the wind (between 1 and 3 pm) after a short break and kite together for up to 4 hours. We teach in the group kite course in the buddy system with two students per setup, so you can regenerate in between and learn by observing other participants as well as the tips and analysis of your kite instructor.

Planning & Feedback

After the session we take care of the material (gladly over an after work beer) and the course schedule for the next day is discussed together. Since the daily schedule depends on the wind and weather conditions, the kite course can start as early as 7:30 am the following day. This means we go out on the water in the morning and the theory lessons then take place after the session.

In the evenings we often go out for dinner together or organize a BBQ at our

kite school at Lake Garda

.
