Make Me A Kitesurfer 6hr. Camp
Maximize your Lessons!
While kiteboarding is not an extremely difficult or physically demanding sport, we feel very strongly that every person who wants to get into kiteboarding should take lessons from an experienced instructor. At GoodWinds we have many years of experience teaching students how to become safe and self-sufficient kiteboarders and we have developed a Lesson Programme that covers all the skills required while having a very fun time!
All lessons, customized to your learning speed: Our lesson programme suggests the abilities and technical knowledge that a kitesurfer should have to safely and effectively pass to the next level. The levels presented serve as a guide for what a lesson should be like. However, since people have different sports backgrounds and experience, we go at the speed of each student. So, for example a lesson could have part of a level combined with another.
With our Boat Supported lessons, more value for your money:
We are the only school in Puerto Rico to use boat support for
every board riding lesson. The advantages of having boat support are
many. Standing on
the board for the first time is only the beginning of learning to
kitesurf. We teach in a real world scenario where the students will get
riding away from the shore and practice all the skills required to be
self sufficient, all this while having an instructor less than a few
feet from them. Students will be able to stand up and ride
for prolonged amounts of time, without fear of going far from their
instructor and will also be able to practice kite relaunching without
beach break and the weight of the instructor. No other teaching method
will get you riding faster!
