TWO HOUR LESSON
Please note: When you purchase a lesson via our website a RIDE team member will be in touch to book in your lesson within 24 hours.
Semi private Lessons are for you and a friend to learn the art of Kitesurfing together. This is a more cost effective method of learning to kite surf and gives students the ability to step back and observe another student. This can be helpful if you find a skill harder than you anticipated by taking a quick step back while another student uses the kite. Getting to watch their achievements or mishaps can be extremely helpful at mastering specific skills and is a great way of sharing memories of an experience you will have for the rest of your life. We pride ourselves on creating a safe learning environment with state of the art equipment and a rescue craft available at all times. We provide assistance by having an instructor with you in the water or radio communication with your instructor throughout the lesson to enhance your progression. With our experience of teaching water sports over the past 18 yrs we have the knowledge and experience to give you the success your striving for.
