The Level 1 Water course teaches full size kite setup / packup, safety, proper procedures for launching your kite and entering / exiting the water and more...

The course is taught at a lake using appropriately sized kites depending on the wind speed and students size / capability.

The purpose of this class is to get the student comfortable in the water with a full size kite, able to confidently maneuver the kite to control power, perform a self rescue and to possibly start riding the board!

This is the material that we typically cover in the Level 1 Course:

Level 2F - Downwind Drag

  • Enter and exit the water independently and safely while controlling the kite
  • Water re-launch the kite
  • Body drag downwind
  • Maintain correct kite position in the wind window
  • Change direction to the left and right while body dragging
  • Self-rescue and full pack-down in deep water

Level 2G - Upwind Drag

  • Upwind body drag to recover board
  • Upwind body drag holding the board with one hand
  • Enter and exit at the same point while upwind body dragging
