snowkiting courses

geilo, hardangervidda, norway

Learn how to harness the amazing power of wind and ride with your snowboard or ski wherever you want!

get freedom to ride wherever you want  within two days

We strive to teach you how to enjoy snowkiting literally right away. That's why we only offer private or semiprivate lessons. This offers us to give you one-to-one attention from the very beginning and use the time effectively. Once you start riding we use walkie talkie to stay in touch with you.

What you need to learn to become an independent and safe rider?

1st Day  - introduction to  snowkiting  & first rides

  • QUICK THEORY BRIEF - The instructor will explain to you the basics you
    need to know about the wind, weather, spot and equipment selection

  • EQUIPMENT AND KITE SET UP - We will choose together the right 
    equipment and show you how to prepare everything for your session

  • SAFETY SYSTEMS - You will try three safety steps couple times during
    the lessons. 

  • KITE STEERING - The instructor will explain to you how to use the bar to
    steer the kite and you will practise this while standing on walking around.

  • LAUNCHING & LANDING - You will learn how to launch and land the kite
    both as an asistent and as a rider.

  • WIND WINDOW THEORY - a bit more theory necessary for riding

  • FIRST RIDES - whenever you master kite steering you will start with your
    first short rides or starts

2nd  day - mastering riding & first turns

  • We will go through all the staff from the 1st day and we will encourage
    you to prepare everything yourself - choose equipment, kite set up, kite steering etc.

  • And then we will spend a lot of time practicing your riding skills - first
    rides, starts and stops, how to adjust your speed or power in kite while riding, how to go upwind and downwind, turns etc.

  • The time spent on this lesson varies a lot. Generally, the beginning is quicker on skis, especially if you are a good skier. On snowboard it is your experience with other board sports which matters. 

how can i practice after the course?

  • When you are able to safely ride by yourself, you can rent our equipment and start riding independently

ski or snowboard?

The answer is not one or another, check the points bellow and find what suits you best!

  1. Ski, because they are just easier for the beginner - you can stand and to start riding you only need very small power in a kite to star moving. On snowboard to start riding from sitting position is the trickiest part. 

  2. Snowboard, because you are a snowboarder..

  3. Ski, because you can have smaller kite for your weight than on snowboard.

  4. Snowboard, because you would like to come to learn kitesurfing on the water. 

  5. Skis, because you can always come back walking if the wind drops

  6. Snowboard, if you want to learn jumps or freestyle later - it is much more fun.

  7. Just choose something for now - you can ride both later anyway :-)
