About the courses
Snowkiting and landkiting courses are held in Šumava – basic, one-day and multi-day courses.
All courses include
- Teaching kiting theory
- Safety of kiting
- Rental of all necessary equipment for snowkiting
In the introductory snowkiting or landkiting course we will introduce you to powerkiting, both theoretically and practically.
The aim of this course is to give a short general introduction to powerkiting and to familiarize the participants with the basic skills in controlling small kites, safe take-off and landing. In the introductory course you will learn what this sport is actually about and whether you would enjoy it enough to take up e.g. to multi-day courses or buy their own kite outright. The familiarisation course is the starting point for any other course.
Within the scope of this course it is not possible to master kite riding.
In the course you will learn the basic principles of powerkiting both theoretically and practically – including kite riding.
The aim of the one-day snowkiting or landkiting course is to learn the basic skills with small and large kites, safe handling of equipment, mastering take-offs and landings, preparation for first take-offs and also your first kite ride.
However, the possibility of a ride is influenced by your abilities and also by the weather conditions. If you ride a snowboard, we recommend a two-day course.
In this course we will teach you how to safely control several sizes and types of kites. We will also teach you how to ride safely behind the kite, including returning to the launch site.
In the first part of the course, we will introduce you to the necessary theory needed to master the kite, introduce you to safety when flying a kite, show you several types of kites and guide you through the training, after which you will be ready to ride the kite itself. The second day is focused on the riding itself and its gradual improvement. Our experienced instructors will be with you throughout the course.
In this course you will be fully initiated into the secrets of kiting and riding a snowkite, buggy or mountainboard, including the simplest tricks. Designed for those who want to pursue kiting to the fullest and at the highest level. The five-day course is the best choice to enter the world of powerkiting.
In the five-day snowkiting or landkiting course, we will introduce you to the complete theory, including all the rules and principles of riding and information on how it is done at different spots and competitions. After mastering the actual kite ride, we will focus on the driving errors that we will try to eliminate. We will teach you how to ride safely between multiple riders (evasive manoeuvres, crisis situations). This course is usually divided into several dates or we recommend to take it at one of our camps.
