MYTHS ABOUT KITESURFING THAT STOP YOU FROM LEARNING IT!

I don’t have enough strength and stamina for this sport.

This is what we hear most often. What most people don’t know is that the force your kite pulls with is held by your HARNES – meaning no power is required. In addition, technique plays a big role in kitesurfing, which you will learn step by step in your kitesurfing lessons. If you compare it to windsurfing or surfing, kitesurfing is the easiest and fastest sport to learn and requires the least strength compared to the others.

I’m not very athletic, it will be hard for me to learn it

In the beginning kitesurfing is mainly about coordination and not about your fitness level. You will know this as soon as you start taking kitesurfing lessons. We agree that this is a full body workout and you will be exhausted after the first few classes. But your body adapts quickly to new challenges and after a few sessions you will have all the muscles needed for the task.

I’m too weak/heavy for kitesurfing…

Kitesurfing is based on simple physics. If you are very light, you will just use a small kite. If you’re a bit heavier, you’ll just use a bigger kite and maybe, depending on your level and the conditions of the place, bigger boards will be needed to give you more buoyancy.

It’s too dangerous for me!

Safety systems have improved significantly in recent years. Yes, I agree that the first ones who tried to drive in 2004 were completely insane! The first systems were very dangerous. But nowadays kite gear has a very high safety standard. If you learn to kitesurf properly, you will know all the safety systems on your kite and how to behave in risky situations. We will teach you all the systems and tell you when and how to use them.

A 3-day course just to learn it???

Most kite lessons take a minimum of 3 days (if you have good wind and individual lessons), which can seem quite long at first. Some people think that on the first day they only have to practice kite control on the beach without being able to get in the water,but with us we get in the water to practice on the first day because that is where it is safest.Learning to control the kite is the foundation for everything that will follow. Kitesurfing lessons are structured very clearly and at the beginning each step is a little challenging. This is exactly why we follow methodical learning steps and so learn in the fastest and safest way!

I’m too old for this extreme sport!

We have been teaching kitesurfing for over 5 years and have amazing students of all ages. Wherever we travel, I see kitesurfers from about 5 to 80 years old. When we were at Turks and Caix, Caribbean, there was a guy who was almost 80 and he was and walked on the sand pretty slowly and fixed his gear pretty slowly, but when he got in the water to ride, he rode much better than quite a few people we’ve seen. You are never too old.

Good to know that for your lesson always depends on the weather conditions! We confirm one day in advance whether the lesson can take place or not. Generally lessons are held in wind speeds of 12 to 30 knots, but we assess this every day. Rain, waves and possible thunderstorms also influence the decision! If you want to check in advance if your lesson can take place, you can use our wind strength forecast! Assuming that your course will run on your chosen date is possible, but always bear in mind that due to weather and wind it may cancel. Unfortunately, it’s not every day that there is wind in Greece. So sometimes you may need to reschedule your lesson through your account.
