Why
Blow Kitesurfing school

BLOW Kitesurfschool started in 2013 by Toine & Chris, 2 friends with a passion for kite surfing. In recent years, this boy's dream has grown into one of the most professional, funniest and most famous kitesurfing schools in the Netherlands.

This is partly because we teach on one of the most secure kitesurf spots in the Netherlands "The Sand Motor" and because we only work with a team of experienced instructors! Our kitesurfing school is equipped with a modern shop where kites, board and accessories can be bought / rented after your lessons. Behind the kitesurfing school there are changing cubicles, sustainable hot showers and there is even the possibility for the real die-hards to store their own kitesurfing equipment safely and insured.

We also have a restaurant where you can have a delicious lunch, dinner or just warm up by our fireplace after your lesson. In short: everything you need for the start of your kitesurfing career.

FAQ

Learning kitesurfing without kitesurfing lessons is extremely dangerous and difficult. We at BLOW Kitesurfschool we strongly advise against this. Compare it to snowboarding a steep slope without experience. Apart from the fact that it is scary, you also run the risk of a terrible accident.

Kitesurfing lessons make kitesurfing less less dangerous and painful. In addition, there are a number of other advantages:

  • Learning kite surfing is a super fun process
  • You learn kitesurfing faster
  • You do not need your own stuff
  • You learn to estimate risks
  • And during the kitesurf lesson (s) you will get to know a lot of new people

Most of the accidents that happen in the kitesurfing world happen to 99% by beginners who think they do not need kitesurfing and therefore make the most crucial mistakes. By taking kitesurfing lessons at a good kitesurfing school with experienced instructors, you ensure yourself safe, personal and especially fun kitesurfing lessons.

You can not learn kite surfing in 1 kitesurfing lessons. From our experience we see that novice kitesurfers need about 3 to 5 kitesurfing lessons to get a good grip on kite surfing. It is important that you learn not only the practice but also the theory so that you can always kite safely and independently.

You should always pay attention to the following points when you want to follow safe and good kitesurfing lessons. Not every kite surfing school has a high priority on safety and quality.

1. Certified kitesurfing school
Please note that kitesurfing schools are certified according to the leading quality marks: IKO / VDWS / NKV. BLOW Kitesurfschool is certified as 1 of the 6 IKO kitesurfing centers in the Netherlands.

2. Experienced Instructors
Do the instructors have demonstrable experience and are they certified according to the applicable standards? At BLOW, only highly trained IKO and NKV instructors work with background in technology, sport & health. Because they have years of experience in teaching, they can clearly communicate both theory and practical exercises.

3. Maximum group size
Check how big the groups are in a kitesurfing lesson? BLOW Kitesurfschool uses a maximum of 3 students per kitesurf teacher in a group to maintain the safety and quality of a kitesurfing lesson. With more than 4 students, the quality of a lesson quickly decreases.

4. New Material
A kitesurfing school should always use well maintained and new material during all its kitesurfing lessons. The risk of accidents is greater as older material is used. BLOW renewed 2 a 3 once a year all kites and bars so we always work with the latest equipment.

During the season, the material is checked by the BLOW instructors every few days. To guarantee the safety of our students during a kitesurfing lesson, helmets, impact vests and lycra's are mandatory.

5. Customer Service & Service
- Is the kitesurfing school still available for further advice after the kitesurfing lesson?
-How is the school well known and what is the reputation of the kitesurfing school?
-How about certification, when will you receive your IKO certificate?

6. Location
As with snowboarding, it is nice to start on a blue track without bumps and steep slopes. This principle also applies to kite surfing; you learn kitesurfing faster in flat and knee deep water. That is why BLOW gives kitesurfing lessons on the Zandmotor in Kijkduin. In this lagoon you do not have to take into account rough waves and currents so that you can focus 100% on your board & kite. If you have lost your board once, you can walk through the shallow water and find your board easily again.

With BLOW you always have three options. You can kite surf in a private, duo or group lesson. Every choice has its own advantages. The size of the group lessons is maximum 3 persons to ensure the safety and quality of the lessons!

  • Private kitesurfing is the most effective way to learn kitesurfing, but can sometimes be very intensive.
  • Duo kitesurfing lessons are very effective and you can still learn from each other.
  • Group lessons are the cheapest option. You can learn from each other, but if you already have experience you will make progress less quickly.

On average, a novice kitesurfer between the 3 a 5 lessons need, so we always recommend to take group lessons in the beginning so you can reduce costs while learning everything about kitesurfing together with your buddies! After you 3 day course is it wise to take 1 or 2 kitesurfing lessons (duo or private) to put the dots on the i so you can really independently kitesurfing with enough self-confidence!

We believe that everyone can learn kitesurfing from 8 to 80 years old!

BLOW Kitesurfschool is the kitesurfing school that children can teach. We are an internationally recognized IKO kitesurfing school and are allowed to learn children from 6 years old and learn kite surfing from 8 years. We firmly believe that everyone can learn kite surfing!

Without wind it is not possible to learn kite surfing, because a minimum number of knots is needed to keep a kite in the air. On the other hand, there is a maximum of the number of knots to safely provide kitesurfing lessons. On average, 70% of the lessons will continue!

  • Minimum wind: 10 nodes (3bft)
  • Maximum wind: 30 nodes (6-7bft)

This always depends on the experience and weight of the student and the components that we want to teach the student.

"If a kite surf lesson does not go ahead, we always contact (e-mail, telephone, SMS) with our students so they do not come for nothing."

The home base of BLOW Kitesurfschool is located in Kijkduin, just below Scheveningen! Our favorite place to give kitesurfing lessons is in Kijkduin on the flat and knee-deep water of the Sand Motor.
