Private lessons in windsurfing


If you come with a group of friends for a kitesurfing lesson or with your whole family we can recommend the group lessons always fun and very educational! With a group lesson you learn to kitesurf in exactly the same way as if you choose a private or private for two lesson. Your level remains the same, so group kitesurfing lessons are not necessarily cheaper than private or private for two lessons. If you look based on time yes. But if you look at how far you've come it's about the same.

So we recommend choosing the kitesurfing lesson that suits you best and not based on price. Book group lessons especially if you are coming with a group! If you come alone or together with someone you'd better book a package of private or private for two lessons!

A group lesson can only be booked with a minimum of 3 registrations, maximum group size is 4 students per lesson per instructor.

Reviews of Private Lesson Windsurfing

Top, just Top! Very nice club with only nice people. A private lesson (kite) from Eline.... If you already have some experience she is definitely recommended to continue learning. Visited the shop after the lesson and of course went home with some nice things. Thanks Soal for the nice experience
What a great location! Lovely stretch for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Water nice and shallow, so you can stand very far, perfect for beginners. In the store you can buy and rent. Highly recommended!!!
I had a great experience! The instructors were all friendly and when things didn't work out for a while, they were all positive. If you want to learn, this is the perfect place! Definitely highly recommended!!!

Structure Private Lesson Windsurfing

Steps Lesson Plan Private Lesson Windsurfing Workum | Friesland | Netherlands | Europe A private kitesurfing lesson takes two hours with us, you will learn how to set up the equipment, you will learn the safety rules, you will learn bodydragging, water starting & sailing!

We welcome you to Soalsurf!

Be present 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Report to one of our staff members.
They will put them on present and introduce you to the instructor who is going to give you a great day!

You can store your clothes and belongings in lockers, for this you have to bring a lock. The suits, trapezes and crash vests are replaced and cleaned every season. You may bring your own surf clothes if you have them.
Once changed into your surf suit, trapeze, crash vest and helmet you are ready to start your kitesurfing lesson.

The lesson begins in the lesson steps of the IKO. You start with a spot chick and building up the kite on the beach. Once you have done this you will learn to launch the kite and go out on the water with your instructor.

When there is sufficient wind, we go out on the water with a kite. That is with twelve knots of wind or more. When the wind is less strong we go kitesurfing on the beach with real kites. For this we have specially invested in Flysurfer Peak kites. These kites are designed for days with little wind.

Once the kite is in the air we will do first piloting. The kite will be handed to you and the instructor will teach you how to fly the kite in a safe and controlled way. Slowly you get better and better and you become the boss of the kite!
- you will learn the theory about the wind window
- you will learn how to take off and land the kite
- how to walk with the kite in the air
- what happens when releasing the bar and pulling your quick release

The next fun exercise you will learn once you have mastered the above is body dragging! With this you will fly over the water from left to right, through this exercise you will be prepared to steer in at the board start. Can you perform this perfectly? Then we will move on to real kitesurfing, before you know it you will be standing on the board and sailing from left to right!

The lesson is almost over. Together with the instructor your lesson is discussed. Feedback is given to further teach you how to kitesurf and a preparation for the next lesson.
At the end of the lesson you will receive an IKO account and access to the IKO app. With this you can easily check your progress and this can then be done at any IKO kitesurfing school. After you complete all the steps, you can rent equipment at all kitesurfing schools with your IKO certificate.
