Best Kitesurfing school in the Dominican Republic
Kitesurfing has to be one of the coolest sports you can do on water. No wonder kids and teens want to give it a go. Most beginners are completely new to boardsports, watersports and kite-flying, so lessons start from scratch. Many have never flown a kite or done another watersport in their life. That’s no problem. Kiteworld teaches kids from ages 8 and up. Additionally the child must be at least 40kgs. For teaching kitesurfing and kiteboarding to children, we use kites with shorter lines which have many advantages – one being that less power is generated because the kite does not have time to accelerate, thus making the kite easier to control.
If a student has prior board-riding experience, plus the right one-to-one coaching, they could potentially be independent in a single day. Generally, most people need around 10-12 hours, or a course of three lessons to get up and ride along. By the end of a course, you will have the knowledge and skillset to make independent decisions and practice safely.
