Activity description

Come and learn to kitesurf in the ultra green Irish capital of Dublin! Take in the lush landscapes as you learn from a team of expert instructors who love nothing better than sharing their kitesurfing techniques with others.

The IKO Kiteboarding programmes are designed to help you learn in a safe way while your IKO instructor respects your rhythm and takes you through all the steps so you can reach your goals.

360 Kitesurfing provides lessons for individuals on a one to one basis and for groups on a ratio of 2 students per instructor. To ensure you progress as quickly and safely as possible they use professional Cabrinha, Nobile, Wainman, Mystic, Dakine and Airush equipment.   

The courses are divided into three stages ans the total length of the course IKO level 1 and 2 is 8 hours. However, it can be extended if that is necessary - to 12 hours

For the time of course we provide 2016/2017: kitesurfing equipment (kite, bar, board), helmet, wetsuit, harness, buoyancy aid. 

The completion of the IKO courses is confirmed by receiving an IKO card that is valid around the world and will enable you to rent kitesurfing gear in any country you like.
