The SAILING CLUB KITE SCHOOL programs are designed to help you quickly master the art of kitesurfing, in a fun and enjoyable way. At SAILING CLUB KITE SCHOOL we follow the IKO method of training, use the latest equipment, video and techniques to offer a comprehensive lesson package.
Mui Ne is an all year destination for kitesurfing. Our main season is November to April. With North-East monsoon generated winds, you can expect daily winds ranging from 10 to 20+ knots, ideal for kitesurfing.
Our Basic lessons are in two sessions of two hours each. The first session of Level 1 is on the beach, where we cover all the basics: suitable locations, weather conditions, kite set up, terminology, basic flying skills with a 2-line 3 meter foil kite, safety systems, depowering the kite, self-rescue, twisted lines, the landing and launching of a four line LEI kite, and water re-launching.
The second session looks at body drags, flying and controlling a four line inflatable kite through the power zone and at the edge of the wind window whilst in the water. Once completed and you show a good level of skill flying the kite, we then progress and concentrate on developing board technique and finally showing you how to get up on the board. 10 knots and over are required to successfully complete the level 2 course, and the session will be stopped should the sea swell and wind conditions become too much (over 25 knots) or too little (under 8 knots).
We will arrange the time and date for the level 2 lesson upon completion of the level 1, normally the following day. There is heaps of information to take in during the level 1 lesson, and a good break between sessions is s advised.
At the end of the level 2 session you will receive an IKO card showing your level of achievement, which can be used at other IKO centres around the world
