After that, you will take your first meters on the board. On the third day, we will concentrate on sailing. Eventually, you will be able to sail upwind in a controlled way after the full course.

Further information

For KiteAmeland safety is leading during the kitesurf lessons. When you have booked with us, we will contact you about 2 or 3 days before the lesson day planned. We can see the weather forecasts 2 or 3 days ahead and predict if the lessons can be given. If the lessons cannot be given because of too little of just too much wind, we will, together with you, find another suitable moment for the lessons. KiteAmeland has not set lessontimes, because of the wind direction and indicated location. Should the wind blow from the north we will give instruction at our location at the beach. In case of wind from the south we will work on the Wadden Sea being tied on the tide. Ameland is a real kitesurfing paradise because you can go kitesurfing with every wind direction!

  • KiteAmeland is active from April up to and including October
  • The lessons are meant for students of 10 and older
  • Kitesurflessons in wind speeds of 10 up to and including 20 knots
