EKO Level 3: Realizing Your Dreams of Kiteboarding Independently

After Level 1 + 2 you are considered an independent rider and you have 3 different alternatives:

a) To go out and practice alone/rent out equipment

b) Go out with the supervision of one of our IKO instructors

c) To continue lessons throughout LEVEL 3

By now, students are ready to get rocking! Kiteboarding dreams are now realized. The hard work pays off. Students practice riding toe-side, attempting first jumps, and learning to focus on advanced skills like controlling speeds by edging, changing direction without stopping, self-rescuing, self-launching and landing safely. These skills are honed to make the kiter independent on the water. Independent kiters can explore the world’s different locations, water surfaces and wind strengths! Upon completion of the course, students are certified an IKO Kiteboarder Level 3 with an IKO Member Card and can purchase equipment. At this level, the kiter becomes eligible to start a professional kiteboarding career as an Assistant Instructor.

Prerequisites: Kiteboarder Level 2 certificate or an equivalent.
