  • What is a trainer kite?

    A trainer kite is a purpose-made kite that flies due to air passing through the cell walls of the kite. It is small, lightweight, and designed as a training aid for learning to kitesurf. They are safer and easier to fly than a power kite and are a great tool in teaching basic kite flying skills and techniques. A trainer kite typically has two or three lines and is controlled using a bar or handles.

  • Can my kids have a go?

    Yes! Playing with a trainer kite is a safe and fun activity, suitable for the whole family. Kids under 6 years of age may struggle to hold onto the kite. However, our certified instructor will be there to help them hang on!

  • Is it difficult to learn?

    Learning how to fly a trainer kite is safe and easy! And it’s a great first step to learning how to kitesurf!

  • What if I learn really fast?

    If you show quick progress during your kitesurfing lesson, if time permits, we will give you the opportunity to try out a powered, leading-edge inflatable kite.
