Kitesurfing is a wind powered water sport using a kite and a board to move across the water. Learning Kitesurfing you learn how to understand the wind and use it’s power to get your chosen direction and speed on the water.
When Kitesurfing you harness the power of the wind through a large parachute type kite. Although the name includes surfing, kitesurfing does not need waves, the wind is the only force needed to power you along.
Your Lessons with Kiteessence will take place mostly on the Dollymount Beach in Dublin. You’ll have a group of max. four people with one instructor. On the first session you’ll learn the theory of kitesurfing, you’ll learn how to control a power kite, how to understand the wind and it’s directions. You’ll also learn how to set up a kite and carry it on the beach, the safety features of the kitesurfing equipment, launching and relaunching. The second lesson will be your first time with the kite in the water. You’ll learn controlling the kite in the water, relaunching it in the water and going with the kite in both directions. From this moment on, you’ll start learning water starts with the board.
