Complete Kiteboarding Program (IKO 2)
Power is nothing without control!!
The goal of the Intermediate Kiteboarding Program is to use the theory and skills learned in the Full Intro Kiteboarding Program to advance your control of the four-line kite. Here, you will learn to pilot the kite while on land and in the water. During the water instruction, you will learn how to use the power of the kite to propel yourself through the water known as a "body drag." You will then learn the piloting skills needed to start getting on the board. You can choose the amount of hours you need depending on your skill advancement. It usually takes 4 to 6 hours after the full intro to obtain good control of the kite and understand the theory of getting on the board. Then, it varies from person to person how fast you start riding!!
