Learn to kitesurf the right way with Loving Surf.


Learning to kitesurf is an investment. Most think take a kite lesson then hit the waves. But kitesurfing is an extreme sport and should be taken with precaution. Without the training and proper knowledge could put you and others in danger. 

Typically we recommend at least 6 hours before attempting a waterstart level. Progression may vary on conditions and the student’s abilities.  It is crucial to understand that part of the learning process is to emphasize all safety procedures and practice them in order to be a safe kiteboarder. Safety protocols are in everyone’s best interest and allow the most fun in the water!

We want you to be autonomous and enjoy the wonderful world of kiteboarding with others. Loving Surf coaching methods are based on the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) standards, the worldwide authority to train and certify kiteboarders and instructors.
