Kitesurfing classes for beginners in Essaouira

If you're new to kitesurfing or lack basic knowledge of the sport, we can help you learn quickly and safely. Initially, we'll teach you the fundamental principles of kite flying, safety techniques, and basic wind concepts. Once you have a solid understanding of these fundamentals, your instructor will show you how to independently launch and land the kite, and you'll practice several exercises on the beach with a lower traction kite until you develop the necessary skills to control your kite safely. Our instructors use proven techniques to help you learn as quickly as possible. Once you feel confident in your ability to control the kite, we'll move into the water and start with "body drag" exercises and work towards getting you up on the board.

We offer classes in both individual and small group settings, with a maximum of four people per group. If you opt for a private kitesurfing lesson, you'll make faster progress with an instructor solely dedicated to helping and teaching you 100% of the time.

Frequently asked questions

In principle, a package of 6 hours is split in 2 hours per day, but we could change them depending on the weather conditions and students' abilities. Sometimes there are students who want to do a little more and do 3-hour class. Another more intense option is to do two 2-hour sessions in a day with a break between them. Everything as long as the weather conditions allow it.

Private Lesson (1 Person) Private kitesurf lesson 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 lesson 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.

There is no right or wrong answer here, and it completely depends on the student, we had students that only needed 4 hours to stand up on the board and kite back and forth, and some students took it a little longer to get the grasp of kitesurfing.

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.

In Essaouira, our main season is from April to end of October. We have Alisio Wind coming from North West blowing from March to November at approximately 4-5 in the beaufort scale, perfect for Kitesurfing. We start kite lessons at 10:00, but always depending on the wind. In the main season there's wind most days, it's likely that we can start the lessons early. The windy season starts to weaken in the end of October so we might have some delays, but we will alway keep you informed.

Our lessons are mostly on the main beach of Essaouira, where our center is located. There's some days that we have to search for wind 5 minutes away from the main beach, but we'll provide transport.

Yes, but only for private lessons. We use a walkie Talkie system, so that the instructor can speak to you in real-time. This makes it easier for you to adjust on the spot and it saves time to get the feedback from the instructor.

Essaouira is very consistent with wind, but sometimes it can fail on us unfortunately. In case of No wind, You will receive a full refund for the hours that you haven't been able to do.

If you cancel within 24h of your lesson, you will be able to get a full refund as well. Past 24h, the cancellation fee is 15% of the lesson price.
