info & faq
What is wind warranty for kitesurfing lessons?
We cannot control nature. This is why we have the so called “wind warranty” on all our kite courses.
Wind warranty means:
If you somehow can not complete all or part of your practical kite course because of the wind, you will have the opportunity to complete the course during the season and throughout the coming season without additional cost. We have an optional offer if you’re living in, or will be visiting Stockholm. You will be able to finish your lessons with our cooperating kite school in Stockholm. You will get a voucher which will be valid one year.
Wind warranty applies when:
- The theoretical parts of the lesson have been completed, and we cannot proceed with pratical parts of the lesson.
- The wind is too weak or too strong.
- It stops blowing, or that it decreases so that it is not possible to fly a kite.
- The wind increases and it starts to blow too much to fly a kite.
- The wind is extremely gusty.
Don't I need to be strong to learn kitesurfing?
No, kitesurfing is not about strength.
It´s more about finding the right technique.
What is the minimum age to learn kitesurfing?
Some children start kitesurfing early as 8 years, but they stay under strict & permanent supervision.
In general the average age to start is about 12-14 years old, depending on physical conditions.
IKO advices the minimum age of 12 years, because then children can understand and respect the power of a kite.
What is IKO?
The International Kiteboarding Organization is the world’s leading kiteboarding organization specializing in kiteboarding education, promoting safe practices and enhancing the standards for the industry.
