Second 5-6 hrs: Water Starting: Harness the Power of the Kite as You Fly!
Its time to get wet and feel the power of the wind gliding you over water. This Intermediate Level course is designed to transfer the skills you practiced on land to the water.
Students will feel for the first time the powerful vibrations of the wind from their kite and will learn to harness it. Students learn to gain power and drag with control both down and upwind, acquiring the skillsets that lay the foundation for a safe ride on the water. Students will become proficient at the MOST VALUABLE SKILL IN KITEBOARDING – how to come to a controlled stop! Water starting on their boards, students will change directions and recover their boards. Graduates will be able to rent equipment, practice under supervision and be certified as a Kiteboarder Level 2 with an IKO Member Card. Students can then progress on to the next course to learn to ride independently and do a few tricks like the first jump!
Prerequisites : Kiteboarder Level 1 certificate or an equivalent and ability to swim.
