JUNIOR KITESURF COURSE
KITE HOUSE SARDINIA
If your child is under 12 years old, it is important for you to choose school where instructors are “Teaching to Children” certified. Younger students need different approaches with extra safety precautions, attention and care during the kite lessons.
- Actually, there is no age limit in learning how to fly a kite, but we should consider not less than 30 kg of body weight. It depends on the child’s physical condition, maturity and experiences.
- It is absolutely essential for the child who will start kitesurfing, to be able to swim proficiently, not to be afraid of water and of course having the willingness to learn.
In our Kitesurf school – affiliated IKO Center – you will find kite instructors with “teaching to children” specialization as well as appropriate equipment for your kids’ size (harness, wetsuit, kites) and safety equipment like helmets and life vests.
The kite spot for lessons is Punta Trettu which guarantees a safe and easy learning thanks to shallow and flat water and constant wind.
Parents can take part to the course to learn how to assist their child, supervise them while assessing spot and conditions, preparing their equipment safely, safety and emergency procedures and so on.
Even if a parent is an experienced kitesurfer, we do not recommend teaching their kids by themselves, for a matter of safety and because it’s proved that kids will react differently with a non-parent tutor.
A big factor of success for children while learning kiteboarding is for parents to manage their own expectations regarding their kid’s progressionAs children get easily disappointed, loose confidence and quit, during the first steps we need to be encouraging them with a positive and constructive approach.. We have to let the child play, explore and learn at its own pace.
In conclusion, kitesurfing teaches children important life skills such as self-reliance, self-confidence, independence and social interaction.
- Price individual lessons (one student with one instructor) 50€/h.
- Price lessons in pair (two students with one instructor) 30€/h per child.
- Price lessons in group (three students with one instructor) 25€/h per child.
A junior class usually lasts 2 hours. As kids in general do not have the same endurance as an adult, you may book shorter-timed lessons if preferred.
- During all kite lessons, full equipment is included in the price.
- Students will always wear a radio helmet in order to ensure an effective communication with their instructor.
- At the end of the course each student will receive the IKO certificationEstablished in 2001, the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) is the largest kiteboarding organization in the world. – recognized worldwide – that attests the level reached.
Kite House Sardinia is the perfect place to learn @ Punte Trettu. Perfect setting, good instructors, very secure and safety and fun first ! We will be back for sure and it is a great spot and school and place to stay at Kitehouse Sardina with Daniele and his instructors as a very committed, patient and professional teacher, having fun at the same time. Our twins (10 years) had lessons with Daniele and loved it. They hardly speak English but understood him very very well. He made sure the keep the fun, learn fast, guide them by safety rules and made big steps. Full kite control, body drag and waterstart… ready to practice themselves now. Thanks!!
We spend two vacations here in 2019 and in 2020. Both times we had a great time. The site is beautiful, the house are comfortable and Sarah and Daniele are nice and very helpful. This year our son took kitelessons with Daniele. Our son loved it and learned a lot. We wish the owners all the best in this difficult season. See you next year
