Individual lessons Level 2 - Zanzibar

Level 2 is for kiters who have taken lessons before and want more comfort and guiding on the water. Your instructor will start at your level and lead you to progression through kiting in Zanzibar.

A normal day

Start the day with a visit to the gym or straight to the exotic breakfast with a variety of fruits, pancakes, omelets and fresh juice. The wind is calmer in the morning, and if the wind’s not strong enough for kiting, we’ll do other activities, such as snorkeling, volleyball, strolling in the local village, or simply relax between the palm trees, giving our bodies time to prepare for the kiting ahead. Our kite center is only 10 minutes away when you walk along the beach, and all our instructors are IKO certified. There will always be fun and social evening activities, such as a bonfire, Masaai show, movie nights, drinks at our bar and maybe heading out to the nightlife of Paje.

Who is it for?

Are you dreaming about the first board start, upwind riding and more confidence and control with the kite? This is the course for you! You want extra help on the water to become a safe and independent kiter. Your coach will adjust the course to your level and your goals, and you will make a plan for the week together. We want you to have fun with kiting, feel safe, be hooked on the sport and meet new fun people you can travel with later. At the spot, you will find a large beach where it is safe to launch and land your kite, toilets, restaurant/bar, kite shop with repair facilities, shaded areas where you can chill between the sessions, and a great atmosphere with music. We think the most important thing is for you to have fun in the water, get a thrill from kiting and meet loads of great people at Lapoint Kite camp Zanzibar.
