Full description
Try out one of the fastest growing water sports on your Gran Canaria holiday. A team of dedicated and experienced instructors will teach you the basics of kitesurfing or help improve your skills if you’re a more experienced kitesurfer. On this 2-hour program, you’ll start out with theoretical lessons in the shop and then head to the beach, where you’ll get to practice in safe wind conditions. Please note, there will be extra time added on for pick-up, driving etc.  During the summer the Canary Islands enjoy favorable winds, making it an ideal place to learn kitesurfing. The experienced instructors have your safety as a top priority, and only operate beginner lessons in conditions that are suitable and safe. The course is suitable for both beginning and experienced kitesurfers, as the instructors will customize the offering with advice and technique improvements for more advanced students. Your program begins at 10:00, when the wind starts picking up. The first 3 sessions are held on land, when you’ll learn to control the kite and understand wind dynamics. At the end of the course, get your official IKO program certificate.

    Expensive..we didn't get to kite surf due to lack of wind and had paid

    There should be better guidance on when in the year there is the greatest opportunity for the various activities, that the money is wasted / lost if no wind and we stood "stand-by" our entire holiday to wait daily if it became today the right wind. So we couldn't help but wait for the holiday to come to nothing.
