Become a kitesurfer and get hooked on this exhilarating sport with Kite Republic.

The six hour Addiction Package is broken up into three separate lessons which is best done over different days. The first part of the lessons is two hours, consisting of the ‘Kite Pilot’ and ‘Hit the Water’ skills, then the next lessons consists of introducing the board into the mix, and aiming to get you up and riding and becoming an independent kiter.

The package is designed to take you from no previous kitesurfing knowledge and aim to get you to a stage where you know how to be safe out on the water and confident to be able to purchase gear and practice the skills you have learnt in the lessons.

This is the best value package for learning, and upon completion, you will also receive a free Kite Republic t-shirt, and IKO certification.
