Lessons or coaching
The lagoon offers a flat and shallow water area, perfect for beginners and freestylers. You can also reach the Atlantic and its waves going though the lagoon mouth. Mainly hit by light winds (12 - 20knots), we still recommend to pack a small kite in case we get one of these strong thermals during the summer months. Atlantic is around 20 degrees celsius so bring a 4/3 long sleeve to stay warm.

This kiteboarding lesson is tailored to ensure everyone in the group feels comfortable and safe while having an amazing time riding the kitesurf board and flying the kite as the instructors aim to advance your skillset to the next level without fear or apprehension.
During the lessons, you will share the kite, taking turns every 10 minutes. That will give you time to watch your friends practicing which is a really good way to learn from each other.
