The first day is run along the same outline as The Kitesurf Centre's 1 day kitesurfing lesson - an introduction to kitesurfing and the fundamentals, how to fly a small trainer kite, setup of a kite and bodydragging techniques in the water. As with all TKC courses, all of the necessary equipment is supplied.

The lesson is completed with a debrief and individual suggestions on how to continue the sport.
