Frequently asked questions
How do kite classes work?
Private Lesson (1 Person)
Private kitesurf class is where you’ll learn in the fastest and most safe way, because you’ll have 100% of the instructors' attention. The instructor will be exclusively with you and will fully adapt to your needs and your level. Your kitesurfing class includes a helmet radio communication system, in which you can talk to your kitesurfing instructor at all times, even if you are in the water. It is the most recommended option if you want to learn kitesurfing as quickly as possible or if you come alone.
Semi-Private Lesson (2 Persons)
Semi-private kitesurfing class is for 2 people, each student will have equipment for themselves, which is the maximum number of kites that an instructor can control simultaneously. In the semi-private class your instructor will be teaching two people at the same time, so both of you must have a similar level. In this class you progress quite quickly but it is not as efficient as a private lesson. It is the most recommended option if two people come together, you want to progress quickly and have a cheaper class than the private one.
Group Lesson (3-4 People)
In a class of 3 people, the price is much cheaper, it is usually approximately 45% cheaper than the private class, but the learning speed also decreases, because we have to share two kites between the three. If you come with your group of friends and you have enough time to attend about 8 hours of class, then this type of class is recommended. If you don't want to share a kite and learn faster, you will have to choose two different instructors, or book one class after the other.
4 people is the maximum that an instructor is authorized to teach at the same time, and there will be two groups of 2 students sharing one kite for each group. This class has a much cheaper price but it must be taken into account that we will only use the kitesurfing equipment half the time of the class.
If you're more than 4 people or want to do a team building event, then contact us and we’ll be happy to work out all the logistics.
How many kitesurf lessons do you need to learn to kitesurf?
In our experience, we saw that students that progress quicker typically have these traits:
- Are very interested and excited to learn, and listen carefully to the instructor.
-Had previous boardsports experience (wakeboarding, windsurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, etc.)
-Have a good overall fitness and body awareness.
For the classes we always recommend private or semi-private because you can progress much more in them. The students have a kite all the time and that is the reason for making more progress, a semi-private class consists of two students with one kite each and an instructor for both. The two students must have the same level more or less, so if you come you should only be lucky so that we have another student more or less of your level in our school, otherwise you will have to do private classes.
What is included in the lesson price?
- All the gear for kitesurfing (Kite, board, wetsuit, helmet, life jacket, etc)
- Insurance (Accident & 3rd party civil)
- Boat rescue service (During Levante)
- Loads of fun
When are the kite lessons?
Where do you teach?
But also it depends on the wind, if there is a very strong Levante in Tarifa, then we would go to Palmones, next to Algeciras.
Sometimes we also go to Valdevaqueros, football stadium, Getares, and other places according to the conditions.
Do you use walkie-talkies/radio communication system for the lessons?
What is your refund/no wind policy?
The students who have passed through our school tell you here what their experience has been, be guided by them to help you select the most suitable instructor and course for you.
Clases con Tomex Tomex es un gran profesional y me ha encantado compartir mis clases co el
Tomek is definitely recommended Tomek is a great instructor. He is not only funny, easy-going and likeable, he also knows what he is talking about. Due to Tomek, I managed to get my first meters on the board in under 6 hours! Great success!
Great instructor I hve return to Tomek for a private lesson. He is really great instructor and can explain good things. Lessons with him are fun. I will definitely come back. Thank you Tomek, hoop see you soon.
Jaén Pérez Tomek es un profesional, aprendimos mucho con el. Lo recomiendo!
Curso octubre kitesurf Fantástico instructor!!! Muy buena persona y muy buen profesional, nos ha enseñado la técnica y la pasión del kitsurf. Queremos volver pronto y que de nuevo nos encontremos con él.
Cool instructor I went out with my day on his 50th birthday. Tomek was our private instructor for the day. We both had the best kite surfing experience since we started 5 years ago. Tomek taught me my first backflip and showed me a few other tricks to improve my skills. He added humor to his lessons and made the experience enjoyable and fun with my dad. Was a great day !
Timid 15 year old found a cool instructor The last time I kite surfed was 3 years ago. I had previous lessons but never had the confidence to go out on my own. My mother decided to get me a private instructor to slowly get me back into it. Tomek fulfilled that task and more. He not only gave me confidence in my ability but he also motivated me. He managed to get me excited about the sport. I am thankful for Tomek for bringing back the joy of kitesurfing. I’m a timid person so Tomek made me feel comfortable with his calmness, patience and understanding. I would gladly surf with Tomek again the next time I’m in Tarifa.
He brings the joy back into kitesurfing ! I had four 2-hours private lessons with Tomek and he was excellent. I would have done more had we have better wind condition. He was very communicative and thorough with his explanations and instructions. He was super friendly and informative. I learned a lot from him and he bought back the motivation and excitement of kitesurfing for me. Thank you.
Excelente profesional Excelente monitor. Su profesionalidad y dedicación me han hecho avanzar muchísimo a pesar de mis pésimas aptitudes. Sin él no habría logrado deslizarme y cuento con volver para seguir perfeccionando. Un abrazo. Antonio Bazán
