KITESURFING in Viganj, at the best spot in Croatia

Our kitesurfing school has been operational for over 6 years with a constant supply of high quality instructors who speak Croatian, English and German. The school is just 40m away from our main camping site. Among our equipment quiver, we have 3 speedboats, and an array of kites and boards for every wind conditions. The kites range from 9m2 to 15m2 so that we can work in all conditions.

Our team is made up of multiple instructors who hold an IKO licence with many years of experience. We purchase new gear every year to ensure safe and reliable conditions for our students. After a longer testing phase, we have made the choice that it is best to use Gaastra kites which have proven themselves in our conditions. We also have a variety of NPX  harnesses, neoprene wetsuits and swimming vests in all the necessary sizes. The rent of all the equipment and the speedboat that you will be using during all of the listed kitesurfing courses,  is included in the price. Bring your friends and family along, and get an extra 10% discount on all surf school offers for a group of 4 and more!

BEGINNER COURSE

320€ /288€*/

The Beginner Course which we offer in Viganj, Peljesac – Croatia, has 6 lessons over estimated 5 days. Learn all the necessary skills to become an independent kiteboarder with a certified IKO instructor. We find that dividing the course into multiple days makes the learning curve better for our students. The course is done via a speedboat which constantly follows our students during the course. On the speedboat are one or more instructors that give tips and corrections to students. Our instructors are also there to jump in and assist the students, and show them how everything is done. With our school, the students are best taken care of since our skilled team is always behind them. 

The school days are divided as follows, however we are flexible and tend to adapt the lesson according to the student’s level

1st day – spot assesment, kite setup, basic handling, safety steps, launching and landing the kite, self landing

2nd day – going out with speedboat, learning to control the kite in the water, body dragging.

3rd day – moving and turning in the water without the board, riding upwind without the board, self rescue

4th day  – water start with the board on, gliding on water (going upwind for fast learners)

5th day  – improving your riding skills and becoming a kitesurfer!
