What weather conditions are needed for a session?
There are two things necessary to kitesurf: water and wind! We want to make our courses as effective as possible and to ensure your quick progress we carefully watch the weather conditions. Ideal wind speed for us is 12-30 knots. If the wind is not strong enough, you’d struggle keeping the kite in the air, if the wind is too strong, the conditions make kite control very difficult. We organize our sessions only in good weather conditions so it might happen, that we postpone or reschedule your session just to make sure you get the best value for the price you pay us.
