With the insurance tool of the Association of German Water Sports Schools (VDWS) you are insured against damage to your own equipment or to the rental equipment. This has often saved us stress, which is why we definitely recommend the VDWS Safety Tool! You can find more information about this directly on the VDWS website.
The LakeUnited team is part of the kite camp and always on site. When guiding, we slip into the role of the tour guide, design the program, plan and organize meeting points, excursion destinations and everything to do with the camp. We make sure it's vacation.
You can contact the LakeUnited team on site at any time with any questions or requests. At some camps we have our own Feel Good Manager with us, who takes care of all your concerns and ensures that everything is relaxed.
With empathy and a lot of fun, our highly trained kite instructors will pick you up right where you are. This applies to beginners as well as advanced. In our high-quality kite lessons, we clearly see our strength in empathy and in working on a personal level. In order to improve your skills on the water and on the kite, we use different methods:
We like to work with video analyzes - during your lesson we will accompany you with the camera and discuss the clips with a projector in the evening. This method has already proven itself several times! Since little things, that one sometimes doesn't notice, often make a big difference, we concentrate on the details. A few small changes can lead to the desired success and subsequently more fun and safety on the water.
Your kite instructor accompanies you on the water with BB Talking radio systems and can tell you in a second what to do. The method is not only great for beginners, but also for advanced kiters: with the perfect instructions via radio, new tricks can be achieved super quickly.
Kites in our equipment pool are from Duotone and Flysurfer. We always have both, tube kites and soft kites, i.e. foil and single skin kites, in all sizes with us.
Twintip kiteboards are from Woodboard and Flysurfer, directionals from Duotone and foil boards from Levitaz.
Our safeguard packages are there to increase your kite range, for even more time on the water.
The safeguard package includes kites for very weak or extremely strong winds: If the 12 is no longer large enough or the 9 is too big, you can take a suitable kite from our equipment pool.
The light wind safeguard includes kites for very weak winds: If the 12er is no longer sufficient for you, we have a larger kite in our pool for you.
The first things you buy as a kite surfer are a wetsuit and a harness. These are not included in the camp price. You can rent a harness from us for € 25 / week (please let us know in advance). Wetsuits can usually be rented directly at the kite spot.
If you want to buy a wetsuit or a harness in advance, we have a few tips for you:
When it comes to wetsuits, we prefer Pro Limit. How thick you wetsuit is, depends on the temperatures at which you will most often go kiting. If you get cold quickly, a wetsuit in 6/4 makes sense, you can also use it in winter. For moderate temperatures, a wetsuit in 5/4 or 5/3 makes sense. If we go to Kenya, consider a shorty. We are happy to help you with questions about buying wetsuits for certain camps.
With kitesurfing harnesses, it does not matter whether you use a seat or a waist harness, the main thing is that it feels good to you. In this blog, our team rider Alex has dealt with the topic in detail.
