Learn to kitesurf, the third lesson

Once the water start and coming to a halt has been mastered, the third kitesurfing lesson is a huge leap where you will learn to kitesurf a longer distance. After independently setting up and launching your kite , you will independently walk to the edge of the water with the kite up in the air. Roel or Thijs will explain the theory on how to apply the ideal body position, sailing direction, keeping the power in the kite while kitesurfing, and how to manage yourself with different types of weather. When all of your burning questions have been answered, it is time to reach our goal of the course: independently being able to ride and sail!
