Our Discover Kitesurfing Course is a one day introduction to kitesurfing following IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) guidelines.
We conduct courses from our kitesurfing shop on Thungwualaen Beach, Chumphon. This 3km long sandy beach is the ideal location for kitesurfing with shallow water, plenty space and usually a steady onshore north-easterly wind. You’ll get to enjoy a picture-perfect backdrop of white sand and palm trees.
We’ll start out with some kitesurfing theory discussing wind direction and safe conditions for kitesurfing, identifying potential hazards. We’ll cover how to setup a trainer kite and look at safety systems.
Next we’ll focus on kite skills. You’ll practice launching and landing a trainer kite and learn how to untwist lines whilst flying. You’ll walk whilst changing directions using the kite and wind.
Then we’ll proceed to setup a four or five line kite. We’ll go through a pre-flight equipment and settings check and cover in-flight checks. We’ll review communication signals and practice launching and landing the 4/5 line kite.
The next stage is controlling the kite whilst hooked into the harness. You’ll learn to understand the de-power system and all safety systems, and will practice more advanced kite flying techniques, demonstrating full control of de-power systems in-flight.
Finally you’ll learn how to pull the quick release and activate leash, to recover the bar and kite and to self-land the kite.
