Kite boarding (also known as kite surfing and fly surfing in Europe) involves using a power kite to pull a small surfboard on water. Kite surfing is a water sport for real adventure seekers! A three day package consists of about three to five hours a day.
The Three day beginners course gives you the skills to get up and going in a safe and confident manner and become IKO certified level two.
The courses are run in English and at the end of the course you will be issued with an IKO (International Kite Boarding Organisation) Identification card which allows you to rent kite boarding equipment from other schools anywhere in the world.
Safety is of the highest priority with well maintained boards, excellent equipment along with safety helmets and you will be taught in one of the beautiful bays where the water is shallow and safe for learners.
This is one of the most exhilarating adventure and thrill seeking sports available and to do it in the beautiful tropical waters of Koh Phangan is unmissable!
