Level 1 Course (3h) :
The IKO level 1 Kiteboarding course starts with kite flying practices using the trainer kite. After you know how to control the trainer kite, the instructors will teach you how to set up a 4/5 line kite. With the small tube kite, you learn the steering, power control and practice a lot with the safety systems. You will also practice on regular landing and launching as well as water relaunching after a crash.
Level 2 Course (6h) :
The IKO level 2 kiteboarding course continues after you have mastered all the IKO level 1 exercises. In this course, you will learn how to generate energy with the kite and do some body- dragged exercises without the board. All exercises are practiced on both sides.
