All courses include professional equipments & accessories (harness, life-vest, helmet and shoes) and suite your level, wind conditions and your weight! Our professional kite instructors know what you need to make you ride 🙂

VDWS - International kite surf license

An international kite surf licence is a must have at most kite spots all over the world to rent equipment!

With the VDWS kite surf license you get an international accepted licence! It includes a theoretical test and practical level confirmation, VDWS Work & Stylebook for reading and learning, online registration in the worldwide VDWS data file.

What you should bring

Bring a long sleeve lycra, a board short or surf legging (also you can buy those accessories in our surf shop in case you don’t have the option to get one in your home town), sun blocker, sun glasses – there are some special for surfing on the markets! Eat healthy foods and drink enough water to give your body the best requirements during your learning period!

Also we ask you to bring a beach towel and not to take the towels from the hotel over to the beach side!

Best times for a kite course

Whenever you are ready to start with kiteboarding!

Best wind seasons are from May-October & from December – February! During these months there are enough wind days to learn kite surfing during your holidays with us. However, it´s always good to have enough time to train the new learned skills after your kite course!

Boat Transfers & Boat Rescue

The surf school is direclty located at the lagoon. Advanced riders can start their kite in front of our lagoon entrance in accordance to the wind situation. However for all others and for those who prefer to start directly at the beach zone, we offer boat transfers at certain points in the morning and also after lunch! Just a 5 minutes boat ride and you are directly at our kite surf paradise!

Our safety boat is always at your disposal on the lagoon and will pick you up whenever you need it!

Frequently Asked

You offer individual trainings and group lessons – what do you advice?

Actually we only teach in a maximum group of 2 people per instructor as we know that the more students are with one instructor the less each student learns! 2 students can also learn a lot of each other while teaching! If you prefer 1:1, your instructor just takes care of you only!

So our credo is to offer high end profession in kite surf education to make you ride!  

Rent the new North Kites

Kite legends like Jesse Richman, Nick Jacobson or Jalou Langeree are among the team riders of the new North Kiteboarding brand. Recently Jesse Richman won the King of the Air with the Big Air Kite Orbit, where 24 riders from twelve nations went into battle in winds of over 30 knots, jumps of over 20 meters and performed the most extreme moves ever.

De Silva offers you the option to rent out those high end kites during your holiday or buy a new one in our kiteshop!
