The huge sandy beach and the windsurfing and kitesurfing spot at Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento is in a class of its own. It’s hard to find a spot that offers so many different conditions all at the same place. The speed track in Risco del Paso in front of the center really lives up to its name. Depending on the tide there is a large shallow area in front of the center, which is superb for intermediate sailors. Another advantage when the tide is up are two shallow water pools which are used for beginner lessons, giving the students a very safe feeling. Kite lessons are held to the left and separate from the windsurfing area.

Kitesurf instruction

At our professional wind- and kitesurfing centers, you will start out by learning the perfect technique for handling the kite before you're allowed to take off for the first time, and you will acquire all the skills needed to skim over the water after only a few hours and learn the basics of high jumps. "Cruising", as it is called, can be a lot of fun, too - you don't need to make daring jumps from the word 'go'.

Our centers always provide the latest and best North Kiteboarding equipment. Each center carries kites and boards specially geared to beginners' instruction. It goes without saying that we use the most up-to-date safety systems, and our experienced and fully certified instructors teach kitesurfing in an environment characterized by a maximum of safety, allowing you to learn the sport without danger or frustration.

We offer semi-private courses with 2 students and private courses. This gives you an opportunity to try your hand at this exciting sport. After completing this course, you will usually already have mastered the control of the kite and, with a little bit of luck, be able to cruise to and fro.

By the way, kitesurfing and windsurfing ideally complement each other – try both! Do you feel an urge to try out this sport? Do you want to become the master of the kite, get ready for extreme jumps and be airborne? Then take off with us…
