Kitesurfing

Although this action-sport was already invented in the 17th century by George Pocock, kitesurfing is now really hot in the watersportscene. With a big kite in the air and a board under your feet you’ll plain over the water in no-time. Thanks to the hip-deep waters at our spot it’s the perfect place to start learning the basics.
Lessons are given to one or two persons at the time so safety and quality are one of our main concerns.

Safety first! Although kitesurfing is pretty exciting, because of the up-to-date equipment kitesurfing is no longer an extreme sport. There are different safety systems which all have a place in our course. One of the first things you learn is how they work and how you can handle them. Kitesurfing without proper training is by our standards pretty dangerous and therefor fiercely discouraged. Because of being a VDWS watersportcenter we are equipped with al necessary tools to give you the best and safest lessons possible and this all in a one-on-one, or two, setting.

Are you ready to be the next kitesurfing legend? And you think you got what it takes to go across the water in high speed? You can start your training at Windy Waters, our experienced instructors can help you start with the basics or can teach advanced kite-surfers.
