Before you start jumping, you should know to ride upwind properly, body drag upwind (to pick up your board) and to relaunch your kite from the water – you are going to need it 🙂


Important thinks to know for attempting your first jump in kitesurfing:

  • You don’t want to be overpowered or underpowered.
  • You will need big space around you in the water 🙂
  • Water should be deep, at least waist deep.
  • Choose good wind direction – don’t jump if it is too onshore, as that is where you will end up!
  • Don´t use a board leash.

If you have your own kite, just bring it with. Our instructor will explain to you all details you should know about your kite and how to set it up properly.
