Kitesurfing coursesThe very shallow waters, that you'll find in many locations in Limfjorden, make this fjord ideal for our kitesurfing school. We normally teach at Østløs or Krik, which are located a half an hour from the shop in Klitmøller. Kitesurfing is recommended for people who prefer adrenaline activating sports, because you get to jump high in the air and reach very high speeds. This is a quick-learning sport! Call and book a course to get going. The kitesurfing school only teaches people of over 50kg or 110lbs.
The kitesurfing courses are held in groups of max 4 participants (every 2 participants share a kite and board) under the professional supervision of IKO certified instructors. At the kitesurfing school we use the most up-to-date kites from North Kiteboarding. These are equipped with the latest safety systems in the market. Please note that the kitesurfing school is not responsible for the fact that not everybody learns equally fast.
All you need to bring to the kitesurfing course is a swim suit, towel, food and drinks, and warm clothes - we'll be at it all day.
IKO-Licenses are offered to all participants
Beginners' course( 2 hours – 1 day )
