Downwinders

An organized kitesurfing trip along the coast

Take it to the next level

On downwinder with BLOW

What's more fun than kiting? We know it: Downwinders rock! We have been giving kitesurfing lessons on the Zandmotor for ten years now. Now it's time to go out to sea and explore the coast. We are happy to take you on this all-inclusive adventure. From taxi, guidance during the downwinder to a warm shower and a snack and a drink in our Beach House. Everything is fixed. 

There are 2 downwinders that you can choose from, these are based on your kitesurfing and downwind experience.

For YOUR safety, always choose the downwinder that suits your level. Nothing is more annoying than having to get out early or getting into trouble because the level is just a bit too high. A lot of downwinders are coming, so plenty of time to start with a short downwinder and then go for one of the long downwinders.

During the downwinder we always work with a buddy system. Buddies always look out for each other. For example, if your buddy's lines got confused, so you help each other on the coast so that you can continue together.

It is recommended that at least a buddy always has a phone with them in case of an emergency.

It is possible that you have bad luck along the way, it is your responsibility to always ensure that your material is up to date. If you are stranded, it is also your own responsibility to go to blow or the bus.

Please note: there is no bus or support along the downwinder. BLOW has instructors who can assist you, but are not responsible for stranded kiters.
