- Don’t cheat on your level. You waste time and money trying to do things you can’t do;
- Remember that at sea everything is more difficult, so be sure that the theory is clear before getting out onto the water.
- The rescue service is guaranteed by the schools until 4.30 pm and if you are not taking a course or you have not rented the school material, each recovery will cost you € 50, so NEVER venture into waters far from the schools and NEVER go down in the water after 16:30 if you don’t have a nice full piggy bank;
- Equiptment and Costs. Buying new gear as a beginner may seem like awaist of time and money, for this reason we 100% advise beginners to first rent the gear, get used to the sizes of the kite that fits your weight and body size and go from there. There really is no use buying new gear as a beginner if you really want to invest in some equiptment your best looking online or in shops for second hand gear in good condition. For the first purchase, you should ask for some guidance from your instructor or even from the shop owners. Your first kite will always have a place in your heart.
- Kitesurfing is for everyone: being as it is a water activity and taking advantage of the hydrodynamic factor, it is a non-traumatic sport, errors are in fact forgiven by the “elastic” effect of the water which protects from bumps and injuries, which are much more frequent in widespread sports such as football, skiing or volleyball. This sport is aimed at everyone between the ages of 10 and over, there is no weight or height limit Kite is more of a technical sport than of strength and as in all disciplines of the sea a good aquatic quality, swimming skills and healthy and robust constitution is required. A particular physical form is not necessary, a normal gym training, where exercising all the muscle groups necessary for the athletic gesture such as legs, arms and abdominals, is sufficient to sustain, especially for the first lessons, the physical fatigue that will be encountered during the basic course and then later in individual endeavours;
- There are two types ofharness for Kitesurfing: the high or banded (Waist) and the low or seated (Seat). The low one does not rise because it has bands under the legs that keep it still and is highly recommended for beginners and for those with back problems. The high one facilitates the movements and is recommended for those who want to try free-style maneuvers.
- Even if kite can be practiced alone it is always better to have someone who helps you launching and above all keeps you in check when you’re in the water;
- Always be sure to be insured! Our School offers an all-inclusive insurance. Insurance is a good way to stay safe from legal problems towards third party and covers any incidence that may require health care, emergency care or first aid, covering daily allowances and hospital expenses. Furthermore, in some areas reserved for kitesurfing it is mandatory to have a specific insurance policy. Insurance coverage is valid against risks to third parties and for personal accidents due to accidents occurring during kitesurfing;
