Location of THE lessons
We are based in Castelldefels beach because it is simply the best beach for kitesurfing near Barcelona. Steady southwest winds, shallow water, flat seas, plenty of space and warm temperatures even on winter make it the best kitesurf spot in Catalonia.
When the wind is quiet in Castelldefels we go to Sant Pere Pescador in Gerona with South-East wind forecasts. We organize the trip days in advance and offer you the possibility to take in our van students and ex-students who want to join the adventure.
When the wind blows from the east Sitges or Vilanova are good kitesurfing spots.
At the beach in Castelldefels
If you are lodged in Castelldefels, we will pick you up at your accommodation.
If you are coming from Barcelona or Sitges by train the meeting point for departure is Cafe 2112 in front of Castelldefels Beach Train Station, R2 Line.

The way we like to do it
We only do the lessons in private (1 to 1) and semi-private (2 to 1) because experience tells us that it is how students make the most of their time.
It usually takes a beginner between 8 and 10 hours to get ready to continue practicing on their own. The objective of Basic Kitesurf Course is for the student to independently control the kite on the air, the WaterStart technique to stand up on the board and start sailing.
We believe that at this point it is convenient to give the student the freedom to choose between: A) continuing with lessons or B) venturing with the safety of knowledge to practice on their own until they can sail fluently. It does not take many more hours. Normally in another 20 hours of practice, you learn on your own to go and come back to the beach without falling.
You should bring:
Coat for the lessons on the sand. With the wind, after a while, it gets cold on the beach.
Swimming trunks (even in winter for use under neoprene)
Waterproof sunscreen (we sell if you forget it or can not find a waterproof one). It is important that it does not get into your eyes.
Is kiteboarding adequate for me?
As extreme as kitesurfing seems, it really only takes an average physical condition to be able to practice it.
We adapt our teaching techniques to the way you learn best and we have picked adequate gear so that you learn quickly regardless of your previous experience with water sports. If you're thinking about it, we would say kitesurfing is probably for you ;-)
