for the spontaneous

One-day basic course

This course is an introduction to the world of snow kiting. After a short theoretical part we get to know the kite material. Then the practical part begins. First you learn to steer and above all to control the kite, because this is crucial for the further steps.

As soon as you have the kite under control, further exercises follow to make it easier for you to move on your skis or snowboard.

The goal of the day is going the first meters with the kite. Until then you should be seized with the kite passion.

dive deeper into the matter

Two-day basic course

First you will repeat a few exercises from day one. It usually doesn't take long, but we want to show you how to use the material safely and in a controlled manner. Then it goes into more detail. You will gain practical skills: safe driving, the first controlled changes of direction and free movement on the terrain (even against the wind direction) with the kite.

The goal for the second day is that you can move with the kite independently on the snow. Of course, this happens under the constant supervision of your trainer. 

The full range

3-day intensive course

This course is aimed at everyone who really wants to celebrate success. On the last day you will make the change of direction perfectly, blindly steer the kite and collect kilometers properly. There is also more to discover because you don't just have to stay in the snow while snow kiting. You can also take off and experience the first jumps. Don't you think? Probably, this is also possible. At this course you can already go on a tour. There are no limits.

Snow is just frozen Water

Water2Snow course

Are you kiting on the water and already have experience? Then the Water2Snow course is the right kite course for you.

We introduce you to the world of soft and foil kites and show you how to deal with them correctly. We also explain the special features and differences between water and snow. You probably throw in: 'Snow is just frozen water'. True, but there are differences.

After the introduction, we quickly come to the more exciting part: gliding over the snow with skis or snowboard. One thing is certain, because it is a unique and completely new feeling. In addition, you can bridge the cold season and quench your kite addiction.
