Kitesurfing courses - are you ready for action?!
El Medano has the perfect weather condition for kitesurfing. The wind statistics are quite good considering that there is a 55% possibility of wind all year, with the exception of September and October. Although stronger in July and August those are also the warmest months.
The wind is strongest in July and August. These are also the warmest months however, the temperature here is very pleasant throughout the year.
Red Rock carries out classes safely in wind ranges between 10 to 30 knots. The wind is almost always from NE but occasionally the direction is from the SW. The school has a wide range of kites which enable them to teach safely across this wind range. In the bay of Medano with onshore NE winds, you will always be protected.
The instructors are IKO, FEV and VDWS certified. They speak English, German, Italian and Spanish so that you can receive instructions in your language.
The school prides themselves on having first class reliable modern equipment for you to use. Their huge selection of kites ensures you always have the correct size kite for the conditions on the day! For your first introduction to land based kite flying they use Flysurfer Viron kites and then progress onto Cabrinha Switchblade kites.
Your instructor will gradually increase the length of the lines of the kite bar. This will enable you to have more control and safety at the beginning and more power when you are ready.
All equipment you need is included in the course price, flotation vests, wetsuits, helmets, harness and leash.
