Find your edge on this IKO Level 2 kitesurfing course in Phuket.
Build on your water confidence and get airborne on this 3-day intensive kitesurfing course in Phuket. Learn how to put your previous experience into practice, building on your in-water technique and mastering your kite control to ensure you’re downwind riding in less than a week!
Based in Chalong Bay, this activity centre operates on Friendship Beach in Phuket – considered to be one of the best kitesurfing locations in Thailand due to its shallow, calm and sandy bottomed shoreline and medium wind speeds suited to beginners. During April – October lessons are also conducted on Naiyang Beach in northern Phuket.
Meet your instructor at the activity base for this IKO Level 2 training course. An intensive 10-hour lesson plan over 3 days, your first day starts on the beach with a trainer kite – learning how to read the wind windows, control the kite and manoeuvre safely in the shallows. Once you’ve nailed the essentials, it’s time to get in the water and attempt your first water start with your IKO Instructor. Over the next two days, you will put your skills to the test- learning how to use the kite power to body drag in all possible directions, water re-launch your kite, self-rescue, recover your board; and become proficient enough to begin riding on your own! On completion of the course, you will receive an IKO accredited certificate and card.
Phuket is one of the best kitesurfing destinations in Thailand, with good wind all year round. Offering the ultimate environment for fast and safe learning with flat and shallow water, medium wind and a wide sandy beach, courses are run depending on the season in Nai Yang Beach (Nov – March) and Chalong ‘Friendship’ Beach (April- Oct).
