KITESURFING FULL INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITY
The quick way to take your course when you are alone is to purchase a private course. In group courses you need to wait until we have 3 students to form a group | In the semi-private courses there will be 2 students.
Also for safety reasons we start with only 1 kite in the air and we share the kite among the group members. This makes it take more days and more hours to finish your level 1 and learning (more students = more time to finish.
Keep in mind that we do not know if you have had any experience before and how many people you will be in the course.
This is the example of the duration according to each option:
– Group Course | total duration 6 hours (2 hours per day) | You finish it in 3 days
– Semi Private Course | total duration 4 hours (2 hours per day) | You finish it in 2 days
– Private Course | total duration 2 hours | you finish it in 1 day
