Upgrade course: Depower Soft- and Race-kites

From only 5-8 knots the soft kites (mats) are stable at the zenith due to their extremely light weight. A good introduction to handling and trimming the kites will save you from many unpleasant situations in the water. Self rescue, assembly and disassembly as well as take-off and landing are the contents of this training - as well as steering, as well as the specific characteristics of the kite.

The minimum requirement is a good knowledge of steering kites and how to react to steering mistakes. Incoming airflow, stall, drag and slack are no longer foreign to you and you will gain a better feeling for soft kites.

After a softkite course with us you can rent softkites with different setups and continue to practice, test and gain experience.
