Why Kiteboard Leashes Are Unsafe

Kitesurfing is generally a fairly safe sport where risk mostly depends on the kitesurfer himself. After our lessons you’ll know how to control the kite safely and you’ll know how to perform effective board recovery so you can continue progressing on your own.

Taking coaching to a new level

We never stop improving, learning new stuff and doing our best to get you in the world kiteboarding in the safest and most effective way. We not only use the world’s best selling and highest quality kites from Cabrinha, the famous Switchblades changing them every season for brand new kit. We’re also working hard on our own progress so our faceplants are quite a spectacular to see! To improve our coaching even further we have partnered up with BbTalkin’ – world’s leader in on-water coaching communication.

It also helps with our vocal cords getting stretched to max when we’re working with you on more technical stuff. Like riding upwind, first jumps, transitions or back rolls. Using high-grade audio mounted on water-specific helmets provided by Bern we can now clearly instruct you in real time when you ride. Without loosing our voice in the process!

As it always happens when someone locally buys new kitesurfing toys the wind decides to die off. No worries though, next week is looking amazing! So if there’s an element of your riding you’d like to work on give us a shout and we will set you up for a coaching session.

See you on the water!
Mahalo,
Jake
