Kiteboarding Cyprus

 

Our school offers kitesurfing lessons and it’s based in Limassol. Most of the days the lessons are taking place at  Paramali beach and some days at Akrotiri beach, always depending on the wind. Paramali beach is located in the middle of Pafos and Limassol which makes it convenient for residents of both cities to attend the classes easily. Both beaches are ideal for  kitesurfing lessons and riding and with combination with the warm climate it makes Cyprus a superb spot! Our school can train from beginners to advance riders who just need that extra boost that will take them to perfection. We strictly follow IKO guidelines as they are shown below.The school uses the latest kitesurfing equipment called Airush which are proven to be the best for 2015 .Select one tab in order to see all the details. The lessons can be either individual or in a group, group lessons meaning 2-3 max students per instructor. Our school has 3 qualified instructors ready to help you through this amazing process of kitesurfing in Cyprus. After the completion of the course all the students receive an IKO certification card that enables them to rent equipment in other kitesurfing spots all around the world.  Usually the students attend IKO level 1+2 and after some training period they can also attend level 3.
