Introduction course


You want to learn kitesurfing? Or you think it makes fun to try? Then get acquainted with kitesurfing by taking an introduction course. Taking this course you can get acquainted with kitesurfing in a justified and safe way. KiteAmeland likes to help you in the way by means of our professional, safe an nice way of teaching. 

In the first lesson we will pay attention to kite technics, materials and safety. We start the lesson at once by learning to know about the windwindow by flying a trainer kite. This is a smaller kite but with the same flying qualities as a big 4-lines kite. By these exercises you learn to know about the different zones of the windwindow. After training with the trainer kite you will have sufficient control to go on with the bigger 4-lines kite. You will first learn how to make a kite ready for use and after that how the safety system works. Already then we will go into the water for the first bodydrag exercises.

How much is an introduction course?

We think personal attention as much as possible by the kitesurf instructor most important. That’s why we make it a rule that an instructor works with 2 student maximally. In this way a student learns kitesurfing much faster and more effectively. A grouplesson (2 persons) takes 3 hours en costs € 90 ,- per person. It’s also possible to take private lessons. A private lesson takes per hour and costs € 60,- per person. From experience we know that after 3 hours the students get tired and the ability to learns decreases.

Overige informatie

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
