Have you tried out kitesurfing before, but want to take your riding to the next level during your Greek kiteboarding vacation? This offer is to earn your IKO Level 2 (intermediate) and Level 3 (independent) certificates on the beautiful Greek island of Evia, which is only a one hour transfer from Athens airport!

The course operates out of the small fishing village of Lefkadi, in the centre of the southern coast of Evia. This is a perfect spot since it boasts 85-90 percent windy days from March through October and offers a wide variety of conditions: from flat water, to choppy water and even waves. Semi-private training is offered (1 instructor - 2 students), given by a highly experienced trainer who is fully certified by IKO, and all necessary equipment will be provided (kite, board, wetsuit, harness, helmet, life-vest, radio communication system) and boat assistance.

 

In Level 2 (intermediate), you can expect to learn the following:

 

F1    Enter and exit the water independently and safely while controlling the kite.
