Learning to kitesurf
Step 1 - kite control

The initial steps of a kitesurfing course are on the beach and do not need wind. Before you can fly and control the kite, you will learn basic theory of kite flying and kite control so that you know how to position the kite. You will learn how to unpack and inflate the kite - and how to attach the kite to the control lines and to your harness. If there is enough wind on the first day, you might have the opportunity of flying a kite for the first time. When you know how to inflate and rig the kite, you will practise flying the kite on the beach. You will learn and practise kite flying exercises that you need to master before you can take the kite to the water.

Step 2 - body drag

When you are familiar with flying the kite on the beach, you are ready for the next step which is learning to body drag. This means flying the kite in the water but without the kitesurfing board. The body drag is where you lie stretched out in the water and let the kite drag you backwards and forwards. You need to master the body drag so that you can find your kitesurfing board if you lose it out at sea during the learning process, which often happens.

Step 3 - water launching and kitesurfing

Finally you will be ready to start practising launching, and kite surfing on your kitesurfing board. Your Magicwave instructor speaks Spanish and English and the first times you are in the water you will be wearing a helmet with walkie-talkie, so the instructor can give you instructions.

With the right wind conditions the three steps will take around three sessions of three hours and in theory can be completed in three consecutive days. As mentioned, it is difficult to predict wind conditions, so when you book your kitesurfing lessons, Magicwave will contact you when conditions look suitable. The time it takes to learn how to kitesurf independently varies from student to student, but most learners can complete a kitesurf independency course in 10 to 20 hours.

In the summer months it is not possible to kitesurf on beaches in or near Barcelona so you will need to drive north to the Gulf of Roses or south to the Ebro Delta for good kitesurfing. Magicwave also has a sailing and surfing school in the Costa Brava at St Pere Pescador in the Gulf of Roses where you can rent kitesurfing and windsurfing equipment all summer.
