The Discovery Course

The discovery course is perfect for those who are eager to explore this new and exciting sport by learning the basic skills. It is also for those who just want to have a fun and thrilling day.

What do you learn during the lesson ?

Basic knowledge about kitesurfing, the kitespot, wind and safety

  • How to setup the kite
  • How to fly the kite (70% of the lesson)
  • How to launch and land the kite
  • How to generate power with the kite
  • How to relaunch the kite after it falls on the water (water-relaunch)

This course starts with the theory about the wind direction, wind window, kitespot etc.. This is important because it makes you understand better how the kite works. After that you will learn how to setup the kite. This means pumping the kite and connecting the lines of the bar. This is pretty easy and takes between 5 to 10 minutes. Before we go into the water we go over the safety system of the bar. This clever system is the reason that kitesurfing nowadays is so safe and everybody can learn.

The best way to get to know the sport is to get into the water and fly the kite so this comprises the majority of the lesson. Our kitespot with flat waist high water allows us to go directly into the water with a real kite. This will make your kite control improve much faster. The kite control is one of the most important stages of the lesson. If your kite control is good the rest of the lesson will go easy. We also let you feel the power of the kite by moving the kite in a safe way. This is an amazing feeling.

After the discovery lesson you will be ready to progress to the next level.

Advanced Package 2

Foil Board & Wing Foiling

Accrokite Foil Board & Wing Foiling – Advanced Package
 
So why start Wing foiling? Because it’s so cool! We were surprised by the simplicity, the versatility and above all the feeling when sailing. There are numerous advantages that make the sport so popular. It is easy to learn, very quick to set up. Furthermore, It is not dangerous at all. And besides, It can also be done with offshore winds! One of the reasons is that the board floats, so you can always get back, even when the wind is dropping, because you can stand (or kneel) on your board.
 
Like Padle changed the tennisworld, Wing Foiling is changing the surfing world! The moment you start having fun is very fast and early but still technical enough to keep having challenges. Still not convinced?
 
So yes, there are some steps to validate before performing, but nothing too complicated, especially if you are already an adept of foil or water sports (surfing, paddle, windsurfing, kitesurfing etc.). (Wing.fr)
 
The most difficult thing in wing-foil: the water start!
 
To get up in wingfoil you have to forget the beachstart. Everything happens on the water! Here are the steps (Wing.fr):
 
Get in the water with your hydrofoil and the wing,
Sit on your knees in the middle of the board,
Still on your knees, place the wing above you so it doesn’t touch the water,
You can already start to move in this position by adjusting the wind grip of the wing, Still with the wing in the air, raise your front leg and stabilize yourself,
Raise your front leg and stabilize yourself, lift up fully with one leg in the middle of the board and the other at the mast, Pump your foil to gain speed.

Our Main Location

How To Find Accrokite

AccroKite IKO Pro Kite School is located at Bodega Hostel, Tong Sala. To reach us from the Main Pier at Thong Sala when arriving on either the lomprayah, seatran or raja ferry we are a short taxi ride away around 2km from the pier. Jump in a taxi when you get off the boat, there is a taxi rank with taxis going in all directions on the island, you’re looking to go toward ban tai or haad rin.If you would like to walk just follow the main road towards the big C Supermarket.

The entrance road is opposite Big C Supermarket, you will pass slumber party hostel, the old kobra gym on the left hand side of the road and you take a left turn at the end of the road and we are only 10 meters again turning right into Bodega Hostel. Go through reception and onto the beach we are on the right hand side just past the tree house!
