This camp is designed for the total beginner from trainer kite time, rigging and tuning an inflatable, all the safety releases, self launching, self rescuing and self launching. Then we get into the water for some body dragging with your instructor dragging behind you the whole time. From there we will go through the basics of getting up and riding, edging and proper stance. After you learn the basics you will be doing many downwinders with your instructor riding with you the whole way down. By the end of our 3 day camp you will be up and riding and feeling totally confident.
