Why learn to kiteboard in Ilha do Guajirú?
This is why…
Our spot is perfect to learn. For 2 main reasons,
Ilha do Guajiru has consistent winds that blow in the same direction all the time, side-on shore. This means you are always being blown back towards the beach, never away.(always check your conditions before you start to pump your kite)
We also have the largest protected lagoon with the outside sandbar blocking the ocean swell and waves. This leaves us a flat and shallow riding and teaching area. In most spots, if you need to, you can just stand up! That’s perfect for beginners since they can always walk back to where they started.
Beginner Kiteboard Course - 10 hrs.
Kiteboarding is a fantastic sport but it is a little tricky in the beginning. To understand and feel how the kite flies, the power zone and how the wind window works…no worries is not easy, it's best to take a course with us. In the 10 hour course we’ll explain and show you everything you need to know. Starting with the basics of kite rigging and trimming through to step by step theory of kite flying, onto body dragging and finishing with board riding skills. Our course is 1-1 with our students, providing the best possible training and feedback. This has led to a 100% success rate with our students getting up on the board.
