LEARNING KITESURF – 3 DAYS/9 HOURS – AND THE 4th DAY FREE PRACTICE

Learning Kitesurfing is easier than you think! With only 3 lessons (each one 3h long) we can teach you kitesurfing and we guarantee you will be riding alone by the end of the 9th Hour, or we will give you an extra lesson for free, as simple as that. And if after 3 days you are ready, you will have our equipment to continue practicing under our supervision. We will train you till we feel you are ready to be independent in the water.

We are giving lessons in Hurghada, El Gouna, Soma Bay, Makadi Bay and Safaga, choosing a different kite spot depending on wind conditions and where your hotel is located.

Our instructors can speak English, Italian, Russian, German and French, they are experienced and qualified to ensure a safe and professional environment where to learn kitesurfing. All lessons will be private, if possible, meaning that it’s one student/one instructor. We teach using IKO standard and at the end of your course, you will receive an IKO Card certifying your kitesurfing level. For more info on IKO, click here.

Simply contact us and we will arrange everything: we will provide all equipment needed, and help arrange transportation from and back to your hotel.

FULL COURSE SCHEDULE

Day 0

The day before our lessons, we will meet at your hotel and move to the kitesurf area for a coffee and to plan the lessons ahead (that strongly depends on the wind forecast for the week).

Day 1

trainer-kite

We will start with the wind theory and you will get familiar with all the kitesurfing equipment. You will understand the kite spot and the wind conditions of the day. All safety measures and systems are explained, tested and learned.

You will prepare the kitesurf gear and learn to fly the kite independently. You will learn to relaunch the kite in case it falls in the water.

Day 2

You will learn to exit and enter the water while controlling the kite. You will learn body dragging downwind and upwind (the ability of moving in the water using the kite).

Day 3

You will finally get your kite board and learn to waterstart. Your instructor will correct your mistakes, till you will be able to ride your first 50 meters without stopping. You will learn the right way of rules, in order to kitesurf among other riders.

Day 4

If you still have energy, you will be kitesurfing alone, but under our supervision. 

TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING

  • A classic Full schedule 9h course needs 3 days to complete – at the end of the 3rd day typically a student is able to ride for very short distance independently and safe – further practice is of course necessary for riding longer.

  • Check our Price table below, we teach privately with max one instructor per 2 students – never more, to make sure that you have plenty of time in the water.

  • After that day, you are welcome to join us when we go kiting (for free). You will of course need your own equipment or rent some equipment from us – check below our rental prices, they are super competitive!

  • It’s easier and you avoid having to carry around cash with you! Plus, you will help us organize our awesome instructor and make sure the equipment is ready and reserved for you!

  • Sunglasses and high protection sun cream for your face. Both very important items.

    You will be using one of our wetsuits or rush guards (if needed) to protect you from cold water (winter only) or the Sun (every day).

    Also reccomended shoes for the water – diving shoes are typically used by our students, but we do provide water shoes in case.

A GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY

Once you learn kitesurfing, you will probably end up paying a lot of money on kitesurf equipment, boards and accessories every year, so we tried to keep our teaching prices under control. We feel that 350€ for a private instructor for 3 days (plus an extra day for free practice under our supervision) is a very good deal. A lot of kitesurfing center organize kitesurfing lessons with 3/4 students per instructor and make you pay by the hour – our way is different, we do not teach with a clock, but we teach you till you can safely ride independently. With our guarantee that you will have fun and learn kitesurfing in a safe and controlled environment, under the supervision of a qualified IKO instructor.

If possible, our lessons will be private – that means you will have one instructor 100% dedicated to you. There will never be more than 2 students per instructor.

In the middle of the desert, one of the biggest lagoon that Hurghada has to offer – shallow water, no rocks or reef, side-shore super stable wind, perfect conditions for learning in total safety! I will upload a video soon, but for the moment I’d rather keep it a secret…

We also teach during our kite cruise in Egypt – with perfect wind conditions and super flat water, the kite spots we will visit during our kite cruise are ideal to begin your kitesurfing adventure or to improve your skills.
