Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use seat?

I learn with a seat harness, after a while I moved to a waist one. my experience is that it is a bit easier to learn with a seat harness, it does not slid up, it feels fine even when overpowered. It frees your back, which can be good for people with back problems, on the other side you lose freedom...

Re: Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use seat?

Change / edit title of thread at the end from seat to waist and the question will make more sense Maybe people taking lessons are out of shape with no 6 pack washboard to keep the waist harness from riding up Plus kite with students is always high up while learning They don't commit yet keeping it ...

Why do schools keep using the seat harness in lessons but most people use waist?

Equipment that you get in the lessons can be crucial to your progression. One that I think is curious is the harness selection. If you notice most schools give you a seat harness, but most people including the instructors use a waist one. If the seat is so good why don't more people use it? https://...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

- find school:location suitable for learning. Not crowded, chest deep, easy entry, steady winds, no wave action (at least to start with) That is where I started in the video series. The best option is the one you describe both for instructor and student. These conditions are not close and not every...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

Kiteschool market is kind of not really a market of choice: When there are several players there are choices. - kiteschools are tied to travel destination/location. What does rating matter if you can't go to learn. This is true if you can't go there on vacation. Many kiters are vacation kiters and ...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

I guess that makes it ok then :o 1.- Nobody but you said it was ok. And it's also your opinion that the teaching isn't serious. I teach instructors and I'm a serious person and I take my job with much responsibility. Saying things are bad without an alternative or a way to improve is easy, especial...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

IKO always requested that instructors have the medic first aid. The school I mention is against the IKO saying they are ripping the money and that they know better. I have found that all the people I find that are against IKO are mostly against doing things correctly. nstructors The problem with IK...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

Well, other than that the lessons cost is nearly zero - instructors usually just hang out around bored and have plenty of time to share experience and give free advice If you want to learn you should get tuition from someone that takes their job of teaching seriously and responsibly. Having friends...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

It is so sad that people will not learn our great sport due to an irresponsible instructor who sees his profit. Heard many stories where people got hurt due to accidents and gave up because of this. So thx for your video and explaining what beginners should look out for 👍🏻 Trying to cover the main ...
