2hr hour Group Body Drag Kiteboarding Lesson
2 or 3 hours Group Body Drag Lesson (R790 / R1185)
We recommend between 2 to 3 hours for your body drag session, this would be for students that have already done kite control and know and understand all the steps from the 4 hour beginners course as well as the advanced kite flying skills – It’s important that you feel comfortable and familiar with the kite.
Before your first body drag your instructor will explain and show you how things should be done before you go into the water independently while controlling the kite. You will then use your kite to generate power and use that power to body drag yourself safely back to the beach.
Instructors will be always in touch with you by using our radio helmets (safest way for a fast learning process). Once the body drag lesson is done you will be ready for your first water start.
