Your rider level will be assessed at the beginning of the course. It is in your own best interest to assign yourself to the correct course at the correct level.
Before booking this course you will need to have completed your 3 days IKO kitesurfing beginners course A. You should be able to perform water starts and having started to ride a few meters into both directions. You however cannot stay upwind nor do you feel comfortable, safe and independent yet and so this is the right course for you.
11 days kitesurfing course B - beginners II - will really get you on the board up and riding properly, riding comfortably into both directions, also in moderate waves, and do basic transitions (change of direction). And you will be able to stay upwind, the most difficult part while learning kitesurfing. This is the phase where most learners give up. But we have the ideal learning area directly on our beach, with a long 6km uninterrupted downwind passage. A very rare thing in the world! With this you can train on the water riding upwind, while drifting slowly downwind. At the end of the downwinder our Microbus will bring you back and you do not waste all your strengths and exhaust yourself walking back upwind, like you will have to do in most other schools. Provided that you have at least average talent you will after this kitesurfing course be able to kitesurf anywhere safely on your own.
Please note this very important point: Our location is particularly suited for kitesurfers, who want to learn riding upwind. This is the most difficult phase while learning kitesurfing. Most beginners fail and stop here in frustration. It often takes many months or years to learn riding upwind, mainly because you have to "walk upwind" all the time and the actual "net practising board time" is therefore limited to only a few minutes per day. At the KITEKAHUNAS beach we can drift many kilometers downwind and practise, and get back by minibus. Therefore our kitesurfing students have 1 hour or more "net practising board time" every day and often learn riding upwind within a few days, not months and years.
This is the reason why our A+B crash courses for complete kitesurfing beginners are so popular: Beginner kitesurfers come to Cape Town for 2 weeks and return home as real, fully independent kitesurfers, who can then go kitesurfing anywhere.
After this course you will be totally independent and comfortable as a kitesurfer. You will be able to kite in most kitesurfing locations in the world. People will respect your skills and spectators will enjoy watching you kitesurfing.
