This lesson is all about having fun and experiencing a good day of trying out kitesurfing. A Taster Day should give you a good idea as to whether you like the sport or not. If you do then it is advisable to do one of our 2 or 3 day courses. These will teach you everything you need to get started. The day begins with a Power kite lesson on Chesil Beach.This is a must and gets you to grips with learning the basics of flying/controlling a power kite. Once you have the basics of the trainer kite mastered, we take you to the clear, flat, shallow waters of Portland Harbour to harness the power of a real kitesurfing kite.
This is where the fun begins. Before you get into the water, your IKO Instructor will give you a full safety briefing on the equipment used and the site. You will be shown how to set up a kite and explained how it all works. Once in the water your Instructor will demonstrate the principles of kite flying; after which its hands on.
If your kite skills have progressed well throughout the day then you can expect to have a go at getting up on the board.
-What to bring with you-
You will need to bring a towel, swimming trunks/shorts, sunscreen (50+), some sturdy footwear i.e trainers (for land based kiting) and you may want to bring some sunglasses too. All wetsuits and protective wear will be included, however, if you have your own wetsuit then do bring it with you.
