Camp Schedule

 

We strongly recommend booking a FULL camp (two weeks). Kiteboarding is a complex sport and it requires patience, determination – and wind!

Booking two weeks makes it almost certain that you will get enough windy days to achieve your kiting objectives.

 

Arrival day – saturday

– check-in, getting to know the location & the team

– group dinner

 

During the camp

– kiteboarding, of course! aprox. between 13:00 and 18:00

– SUP sessions in the morning, until the wind comes

– group trip around the island

– pool party & barbecue

  

Island trip, around days 3 and 10

We’ll pick different destinations each time so we don’t get bored. Exact trip days & schedule depend on wind forecast.

 

Departure day – saturday

Check-out and the long way home

   

 

The schedule is flexible and will be decided by the group, according to wind & weather conditions and the technical level of participants

Information will be delivered the same for everybody, but progress depends on physical readiness and wind strength

 

What if no wind? Price will be reduced to 400 EUR / week if you get less than 6 hours of kite time / week (equivalent to 3 windy days). A good windy week should give you around 10-12 hours of kite time.

Why Lefkada?

An easy to reach island with friendly winds and crystal water

Thermal wind

As dry land gets hot from the sun, the increasingly warmer air rises and is replaced with cooler air from the sea.

 

It’s a very predictable and stable type of wind, without gusts.

 

One big advantage – it always blows on-shore, so you can’t get stranded out at sea :)

A beautiful island

Who’s not into kiting can have fun on the water with the SUPs, snorkeling, or can check out various interesting places on the island:

– the castle of Agia Mavra / Santa Maura

– an incredible beach at Porto Katsiki, only accessible by 347 steps

– villages (and restaurants) of Poros, Nidri or Ligia, and others

– and we’re leaving some surprises unspoilt…

 

Hotel Kleopatra

 our hosts

You’ll find everything you need for a great holiday:

+ modern hotel overlooking the Ag. Nikolaos bay

+ spacious rooms

+ tasty breakfast to start the day

 First steps on the water

 

Before you start

– swimming at least brass and being friends with water (and soap)

– no respiratory or random crisis medical conditions (epilepsy, etc.)

 

 

Stage 1 – novice

why the kite flies, how to stay safe

+ wind window – wind directions & types, positioning against the wind

+ kite rigging – getting to know the equipment, preparing the equipment for flight

+ safety – information and systems related to safety on the water, safety drills, helping yourself, helping others

 

Stage 2 – pilot

fly the kite

+ launch & re-launch, landing – safely getting the kite into the air, and on the ground again, in groups of two

+ beach fly – flying the kite while standing on land or in the water, with the help of another student

 

Stage 3 – independent rider

your first moments as a kite-boarder

+ body dragging – moving through the water by using the kite, without a board

+ water start – moving on the water with a board on your feet

 

each stage takes around 2 days

all stages will be done in groups of two riders, so one can assist the other and together you can be independent as fast as possible

after the pilot stage, an instructor can watch over two groups / kites simultaneously

INTERMEDIATES

4 seats/ week

groups of 4 students / instructor

your own kite gear is recommended

 Discover freedom – go upwind

 

Before you start

– you’re familiar with the water-start & basic safety techniques

Stage 1

+ evaluate your technical level

+ fine-tuning your stance on the board and your kite control

+ edging and going upwind, so you can get back to your starting point

+ linking runs with fluid transitions

 

Stage 2

+ down-loop transitions

+ toeside riding

+ carved turns

+ loaded or boosted beginner jumps

 

Safety stage

+ deep-water self-rescue, with & without kite pack-down

+ what to do when kites get tangled (hint: release!)

+ recovering a board

+ getting another rider to shore by body-dragging

 

you re now a complete rider, ready for the sea
