Individual lessons Level 2 - Portugal

Level 2 is for kiters who have taken lessons before and want more comfort and guiding on the water. Whether you are dreaming about your first boardstart, upwind riding or jumping, this is the course for you. In level 2, you will have a personal coach, who will start at your level and lead you to progression.

A normal day IN PORTUGAL

We start the day with a delicious breakfast at the villa. Our host will tell you about the day, the forecast and our plans. We will bike down to the kite center, where our boat will take us to the kite spot before the wind picks up. You will be closely supervised and taught from the level you are at. Come home and enjoy a cold beer at our balcony with new friends after a long day in the sun with hard work. If you want, you can join our team for dinner at one of the local restaurants in Esposende before checking out what the nightlife has to offer.

Who is it for?

This package is designed for kiters who have taken lessons before on snow or on water. You want extra help on the water, either to become a safe and independent kiter, or to start with jumps and rotations. Your coach will adjust the course to your level and your goals, and you will make a plan for the week together. You will most likely kite at our home spot, which is a river mouth with flat water. We think the most important thing is for you to have fun in the water, feel safe, get a thrill from kiting and meet loads of great people you can travel with later at Lapoint Kite camp Portugal.
