The first IKO assistant course of 2019 completed.

May 27, 2019 | Category: Uncategorized

20/24 Mai we had the pleasure of teaching 5 eager kitesurfers how to be an IKO assistant. Our group was a mix of Italians and a German candidate so we run the course in English.

The first day we had rain so we met inside and did theory and kite repair.

Every student got the IKO assistant Manual (a 160 page book). This manual is the guideline for the course. It covers in depth the kite equipment, the weather, lesson plan and lot’s more. Besides that every candidate received a laminated the IKO visual lesson plan, the Right of Way Rules, international signals, the certification standars and the Wind Window.

From day 2 we had perfect weather and met everyday at the beach of the Wind Riders school. Robbie the owner of the school put up the tent so that we had a big place of shadow to cover theory.

On the beach we did a lot of simulation, a demonstration of a beginner lesson. Practicing with the trainer kites and teaching each other the visual lesson plan of a beginner lesson.

On the water we did 2 riding tests. One with light wind, one with strong wind. The candidates demonstrated: upwind bodydrag to the board, with the board, riding tooside, jumping in both directions, gybing, recovering a person in the water, selfrescue, safely taking and passing a kite from the student. Then we had 2 teaching session with real students. The went through the lesson plan with eas. And both test students fell in love with our sport and are coming back for more kitesurf lessons! Because we are teaching on Lake Garda the candidates also had the chance to launch and recover a kite by using a boat.

After 5 very intensive days we finished with a theory test. All candidates pasted and left with their IKO Assistant diploma! For me it was an extra special course. It was the first one after haven taken a 3 year break to take care of my suns (now 2,5 year and 10 months). Teaching this course reminded me that I loved running assistant courses, teaching medic first aid and RYA powerboat courses. So there will be more courses scheduled soon 🙂 Are you interested?

We speak english, german, holland, and italian, we are Iko and VDWS certifield but

We organise kitesurfing lessons but also wakeboard, safari and sup tour

very special also Downwinders from Bel Ombre to Le Morne

The wind is usually sideshore left, sideways onshore. The more Eastern the wind, the gustier the launching conditions. Here, you should go for the 10hrs position with your kite and run approx. 10 – 20 to the lagoon before taking off. The entire area is surrounded by a belt of reefs as most of Mauritius is. Bel Ombre is divided into two areas: one wave spot and a huge standing range with shallow water. The standing range is ideal for beginners and encompasses about 700 m x 300m.

Scanning the beach and its surroundings you will see a strip of grass (approx. 20×60). This is where most of our courses are held. Next to it we are facing deep yet turquoise water, ideal for kiting shallow waters or instructing learners from a boat. Here, an 80-meter strip of corals is lining the shore, a red buoy distinguishing it. You can skid over it but shouldn’t jump and avoid at low water. After passing the lagoon, you will be confronted with the reef, which needs close attention when the tide is low. Beyond the reef, you will be facing the open sea with waves for beginners and advanced kiters if headed towards lee (waves comparable to One Eye). Waves between 1 and 4 meters can be found here – ideal for kiters and breaking wave beginners. Please note, that very high swell can entail strong current and that low water requires running deeper into the sea (approx. 30m). As we, KiteGlobing, hold the exclusive right to use this spot, it is never crowded.

on the day there are restaurant at the beach, sunbeds, pool, bar, volleyball court, pool table, table tennis, playground

Mauritius offre very safe place not criminal, every local people are smiling and very friendly, and the place in some area is so quiete that it is so funny the dogs are sleping in the main strret…

We are sure if you visit you will fall in love

you can find flight from the main city in europe, sometime the directly and some time with th stop in Dubai, fantastic just to visit the airport and make shopping before your best Holiday ever

Models for one day at the Wind Riders kite school

May 6, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Models for one day at the Wind Riders kite school, Limone Lake of Garda.

MAMBA BEACH kitesurf

While we were waiting for the afternoon Wind called “Ora” to start our kitesession we had a little photoshoot…

It all started out as fun.  How many photos or selfies do we make every day or every week? We send a photo to a friend, to a relative as a special way to show our mood in a little more original way then writing it. So why not show the new North collection with the logo of Wind Riders with some pictures? Exactly in the way that we use every day . So the photoshoot started and It’ has been a very fun experience. A smile is a simple thing but beautiful and has so much value. Everything looks more shining if there is one smile. A smile can not only bring something positive for a moment but can sometimes last forever. With our photos full of smiles we want to give you a moment of happiness and give you all the positive energy that the Garda Lake has.

Have a look at our photos

We took the pictures at our kite centre, located at Limone between Camping Garda and the 2 fantastic bars: “ Mamba Beach” and “Cherenguito,” where the young people come for aperitivo spritz, to talk and have fun just hanging out sitting by the swimming pool watching the view of the Lake turn from green to blue. Wonderful colours just like our north t-shirts! Thanks a lot to all the friends kite instructor: Elena, Max, Simona & Bianca. Thanks to our manager instructor Robbie who has been our official photographer and director during this photoshoot. Not bad if somebody can teach you Kitesurf and also can make a professional photo, right?

See you soon in Limone,

Monica

 

super spring kitesession on the 2nd of April

April 8, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Nice spring afternoon kite session with a good ora blowing.

Yesterday we had a nice session. The ora blows when the temperature difference between day and night is big. Which happens at lake Garda from mid march until mid november. (the other months it stays sometimes to cold to get this temperature difference). We had 23 degrees and where kiting with 12 meter fully powered with our small freestyle boards.

Only one other kitesurf school was on the water and that is exacty the beauty of kiting in the spring on Lake Garda. You have the whole lake almost to yourself! We went out with 4 lifters. Me (Robbie) went out on the new North Hydrofoil, Monica was jumping around with North Soleil girls board and our two lifters kited with there own equipment. After the session we went to Mamba beach for a nice hot drink and enjoy the last sunshine of the day.

Do you want to have a great kitesession on an almost empty lake Garda? Then come kite with us in April. Are you scared of the cold? Even if you lift with your own equipment we give you a neo racer jacket to stay warm during the boat ride.

Sailing and Kitesurfing in October !

October 8, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Even there is no summer temperature anymore the October is still perfect for sailing lessons with the catamaran and for kitesurf lessons. There is always wind so lake garda is a nice spot for kitesurfing and other water activities. Especially in October we have most of the time strong north wind. So the people enjoy the kitesurfing and the sailing. We provide you with wetsuits, life jackets and shoes ( for gloves it´s not yet cold enough 😉 ) so you feel still comfortable if it´s getting colder while having long sessions in the water. We bring you with the power boat directly to the kitesurf spot. You follow the wind and there is a lot of space around you. You learn immediately how to react in deep water and advanced riders are lucky to have the wind shuttle. You can choose between SUP, Catamaran, Dinghy, Kayak or Kitesurfing – there is something for everyone.

Even there´s only time for a long weekend or a few days, next to our surf and sailing school Limone Watersports at lake garda, Italy is the nice Hotel Villa Romantica which have great offers for this month. We have a lot of different courses you can choose. Just contact us if you want a tailored offer.

We are looking forward to welcoming you !
