Good 2 Go

FULL COURSE

If you are keen to commit and decide to become an independent kiteboarder, this course will teach you all aspects of the kitesurfing sport from A to Z within a few sessions. At the end of the course, you will be qualified and certified with an IKO kiteboarder card up to level 3.
Certification standards were designed to validate a student’s achievements from  the first day you start to learn until your first jump
Once your course is finished and you start practising on your own, your goal should be to accomplish IKO Level 3 status followed by your independent kiteboarder IKO Level 3N status. 
We provide further lessons to acquire/refine skills and certify your additional status.
Note:  Most rental places require you have 3N status.
