Together with the student, we discuss from lesson to lesson, how and in which direction to continue. The lessons are for you, they shall be about what YOU NEED and would YOU like to learn RIGHT NOW.


This tailormade individual instruction model and our kitesurfing lessons require a high degree of professionalism and flexibility from our instructors. This is why, at our kite school in Sri Lanka, we hand-select our instructors which are all IKO-qualified professionals and follow the IKO methods and standards.
