Kitesurf Drop-Offs in the Sea
For autonomous kiters who wish to practice kitesurfing far from the crowds, we offer drop-offs in the sea. After preparing your own equipment, or renting equipment from our school, you are taken by boat to a zone defined by the instructor off the beaches. The drop-off in the sea must be reserved in advance with the Kitecenter.
Kitesurf Courses for Beginner Children and Adults
Thanks to our kitesurf school, we will introduce beginner licensed or non-licensed children and adults to kiteboarding by teaching them beach departures on directional boards. We will help intermediate levels progress with jibes, jumps, passes and other rotations, and allow experts to continue to progress with personalized kitesurfing courses such as our freestyle coaching to master the kiteloop, or new supports such as foil or strapless surfing. We also offer specific formulas for children and teenagers, with beginner courses (to become an autonomous kiter), improvement, and even competition training. Our kitesurf club also offers drop-offs in the sea and supervised navigation.
High-end Kitesurf Equipment
Obviously, to practice this sport in the best conditions, good equipment is essential. Find in the shop of our training center the sale and rental of high-end kitesurfing equipment such as boards, kites, neoprene wetsuits as well as harnesses.
Aquatic Activities for Everyone
Our kitesurf school also welcomes associations, groups, and corporate committees that organize professional seminars with an incentive or informative character, in order to motivate teams in the relaxed and stimulating setting of a kitesurfing initiation. In addition, we offer aquatic activities such as windsurfing, diving, paddleboarding, jet skiing, towed buoy, jet ski, and water skiing. And also land activities such as karting, cycling, and golf for those who do not want to get wet J.
