Nevertheless, as every single sport you want to practice, there are some steps that are better to follow. For instance, at Fort Lauderdale KiteSurfing Co. they advise people to take into account the necessary steps to success in kitesurfing.
Steps of learning:
Step one Kite Control:We will travel to one of many large beaches in the area. We will discuss and practice Kite setup, Kite control, and etiquette.After a successful lesson in Kite control we will move into the water for a lesson on body dragging. Body dragging is the process of using the kite to propel you through the water in a desired direction without the use of a board.
Step two Body Dragging:After a successful lesson in Kite control we will move into the water for a lesson on body dragging. Body dragging is the process of using the kite to propel you through the water in a desired direction without the use of a board.
Step three Water Starts:Once the student understands the basics of kite control they will be instructed on how to perform a water start. A water start is the first step to standing up and riding on the board.
Step four Kiteboarding:It is now time to harmonize kite and board control for longer rides. We will provide step by step instruction on how to improve technique in order to accomplish multiple goal sets. At this place you can be sure that lessons are taught with a maximum of 3 students, so the instructor will be there for you as many times as you need him/her.
