Following on from the one and two day kitesurfing lessons, the third day of this course provides another full day of tuition to really master your board control and become an independent kitesurfer. Anyone can attend the 3rd day if you feel you are at the appropriate level whether or not you have completed the 1 or 2 day course with us previously. As with the second day of the course the third day is also 100% practical.

The lesson is completed with a debrief and individual suggestions on how to continue the sport. Each student is given a handout package including BKSA/IKO certification, magazines, stickers and information about suitable kites and boards to buy. There is huge amount to cover and learn in the 2 day kitesurfing course, if you are keen to take up and continue the sport we usually advise stepping-up to the 3 day kitesurf course.

Our course bookings are flexible so if you are unable to take days off work it is possible to complete the 3 day kitesurfing course over two separate weekends.
