If your level is too low in kiting or teaching, we will ask you to improve in that area. Your profile will then be upgraded as soon as you reach that level (no additional fees).
A complete refusal could only happen if the candidate displayed serious unprofessional or dangerous behaviour.
You will then be asked to send a video of you performing those skills.
Note that you can record that video before the course in case the wind is too light, or if you are not familiar with the local conditions for example.
There are some rules to respect for this video, so please contact us or IKO before recording it to avoid any problems.
Kite theory and exams will be held in our workspace in Embocca in the morning, while practical sessions and live teaching will be split between Embocca and Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding school.
It takes 7mn driving to go to LEK. If you do not have a vehicle, the best option here is to ask a moto-taxi, which will cost about 2.5$-3$ per trip.
You can also do a quick dowwinder 🙂
It is not mandatory. Most people prefer to bring their gear so they can pass the riding test with a familiar gear, analyse it during the course and kite before/after the courses. We will however provide all the necessary gear (no extra fee) for any candidate needing it.
However please at least bring your harness.
No, we will provide all necessary equipment, including kites. Not every kite is suited for teaching, and you shouldn’t risk damaging your own kite during lessons. You can teach with your own harness, leash and helmet if you have them.
A spanish course will likely happen once a year. This year it is in November.
French courses may be scheduled in the future.
You can get a full refund of RKA’s fees (minus transfer fees) if asked up to 3 weeks before the start of your course. IKO fees however will not be refunded.
