ADDICTED TO VITAMIN SEA? JUST GO ON MORE ADVENTURES & BE AROUND GOOD ENERGY! CONNECT WITH PEOPLE, LEARN NEW THINGS, GROW!

Whether you prefer to go at your own pace from the very beginning or have completed the Intro package and just need a couple more hours to boost your confidence, private lessons offer instruction tailored to your skill set. Your own IKO instructor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience on all kitesurfing equipment. Some kite surfers have already taken lessons before and don’t need to do the whole 3 day course. For these people we offer a day by day lesson package which includes an IKO license. You can do any amount of lesson time per day, on a day by day basis until you feel confident to go out on your own by renting or buying your own gear.
