Power kiting or traction kiting is a great introduction into the world of all the other kite sports as well as being great fun in itself! Learning to fly the kite is a very satisfying process and extremely thrilling, you will soon be hooked and wanting to be pulled across the beach by a bigger, more powerful kite.
This powerkite course takes you right from the beginning with a short theory session about the wind and weather, equipment, safety and the wind window; all in the comfort of our centre's classroom. After that, the fun part begins where you start to use the power kites! You'll be covering; the set up procedure, safety system release, then you'll move onto launching, landing and relaunching, bar control and steering the kite within the 'wind window'.
Next you'll move onto a smaller kite to help you build confidence on controlling the kite. As you build up your flying skills you'll have the option to use larger power kites to further increase the pull and the thrill. The kites used are forgiving making your learning curve quicker, more fun and ideal for beginners.
