IKO Level 1: Discovery
Approx 2-4 hours
At the end of level 1 you will have had your first taste of flying the inflatable kite. This level takes two to four hours to complete. You will learn to assess the suitability of a location and the environmental conditions. When you master the trainer kite, the power zone, terminology and basic communication signals we will have you set up the inflatable kite (the big kite).
IKO (International Kiteboarding Organisation) is all about safety. You know how to set up the kite, now it’s time to learn how to use its safety systems and the power/depower trim. Time to finally fly the kite in the water for a bit and you are ready for level 2: intermediate.
