PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTIONS

All lessons are being accomplished by qualified instructors within the teaching methods of the VDWS. Within our group courses 2 students (buddy system) are sharing a kite. When you share your experience it is more rewarding, and it is also safer.

YOUR LEARNING SUCCESS

In principle, no previous knowledge is absolutely necessary for becoming a kitesurfer. But having board skills and being comfortable in the water really helps decrease the learning curve.

OUR LEARNING SPOT

Our learning spot at the Ringkøbing Fjord offers a huge area with shallow water. This makes the spot suitable for beginners as well as intermediate kitesurfers.

EQUIPMENT INCLUDED

With Westwind.dk you get all kitesurf equipment which is recommendable for a safe training. To stay warm you get A 5/3 mm wetsuit from Rip Curl. Please note that we don't hand out neoprene shoes, gloves or beanies. You can get your shoes for a special price.

We are teaching with kites from Duotone

YOUR INSURANCE

During your course the kitesurfing equipment is covered by us. As soon as you are training on your own we recommend an extra insurance like the VDWS Safety Tool. You can apply for it at the local surf centre or online.

VDWS SAFETY TOOL

GETTING CERTIFIED

At the end of your kitesurfing course you can buy your VDWS kitesurfing certification. The certification is based on the VDWS Level System. Enjoy the benefit of your certification and rent your kite equipment with any VDWS ktiesurf school (from Level 3).
