How to set up your gear
We teach how to set up the gear on the first lesson. During your following lessons with us, many times the equipment will be ready for you, so you can spend more time on the water. It is very important though to be confident when it comes to knowing the gear, so make sure you practice this part as well!
In this video you will learn how to set up your kite gear, what to check before you start to assemble, or during assembling.
Now it’s time to understand how to:

It is very important to know how to activate your safety and if it’s needed how to pack your kite in the water and perform wing-tip sailing to get back to the shore. In this video, you will learn all of this and of course, we will also practice it during your lessons with us.
Upwind body drag is a very important skill in deep water.
We will show the technique to you briefly, but in our lagoon, it is not a necessity since you can stand up anywhere and just walk for your board.
When you choose a kite spot with deep water you will need to master this skill!
- Pulling on the bar too much
- Oversteering the kite
