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:
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 kite surfing lessons. Not every kitesurfing school considers safety & quality of paramount importance.
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 kitesurf centers in the Netherlands.
2. Experienced Instructors
Do the instructors have proven experience and are they certified according to the applicable standards? BLOW only employs highly trained IKO and NKV instructors with a background in technology, sports & health. Because they have years of experience in teaching, they can clearly convey 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 be well maintained and use new equipment during all its kitesurfing lessons. The likelihood of accidents increases the older material is used. BLOW renews all kites and bars 2 to 3 times a year so that we always work with the latest material.
During the season, all material is checked every few days by the BLOW instructors. To ensure the safety of our students during a kitesurfing lesson, helmets, impact vests and lycras are mandatory.
5. Customer friendliness & 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?
As with snowboarding, it is nice to start on a blue slope without bumps and steep slopes. This principle also applies to kite surfing; you learn kite surfing 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 do lose your board, you can walk through the shallow water and easily find your board again.
With BLOW you always have three options. You can kite surf in a private, duo or group lesson. Each choice has its own advantages. The size of the group lessons is a maximum of 3 people to ensure the safety and quality of the lessons!
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 is allowed to teach children. We are an internationally recognized IKO kitesurfing school and children from 6 years old can learn power kiting and from 8 years they can learn kitesurfing. We firmly believe that everyone can learn to kite surf!
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!
This always depends on the experience and weight of the student and the parts 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. Kitesurfing lessons are only 5 km from Scheveningen and you can park for free. In short, the ideal place for kitesurfing lessons. This location has the following characteristics:

The best location for learning kite surfing
Nice kite or just fancy a nice hot shower? Walk behind the kitesurfing school and there you will find them: 3 hot showers with a view of the dunes. The solar water heaters warm up the water during the day by the power of the sun so you can take a warm shower. Do not forget your towel?
