The ground school is the first step. Here we are in a classroom setting and cover weather, tides, clouds, how to determine storms and turbulence. We also cover the wind direction, wind window and different wind knowledge to become a safe and proficient kiteboarder. We go over the location risk assessments (LRA) and different safety features of kiteboarding in this area.
Finally, we hit the beach and apply the knowledge that we learned in the classroom to real live situations. Set up the four line kite, different parts of the kite/bar/&lines, how to handle the equipment, go over the three safety concepts and do self rescue situations on land. We plan for this lesson to be four hours give or take depending on the individuals skill level.
