I am not good enough for Flag beach I think as can't stay upwind yet. I understand Flag beach launch is quit narrow/short so there is no space for the walk of shame style learning there. Correct? Probably in a year time I will be good enough?
I think it’s ok for the both of you..
I know Flag Beach is a great spot as I have been to Corralejo before - but never to the kitesurfing beach itself...
I am a bit confused here though. Flag beach site does say that they have 3 km sandy beach at their disposal. But at the same time they do not teach kitesurfing on the beach (they teach from a boat) as they say it is crowded and can be dangerous at low tide (rocks).
I think teaching/learning from a boat is not that great (4-6 people in the boat each getting 20 - 30 mins in the water with one kite taking turns - so i heard). So they must have a good reason for it - i.e. not enough space may be?
I do not need instruction most of the time (I took about 8 lessons already and went solo about 10 times so quit comfortable to learn my myself) - but just need to do lots of waterstarts/riding downwind and gradually learn to stay upwind.
I know most people would see me as a nuisance doing this - unless there is plenty of space...
May be someone could actually confirm for me - is it possible /allowed for a independent beginner do the "walk of shame" kind of learning at Flag Beach Fuerteventura.
Is there enough space to do this? Is there a beginner area of the beach where one can to do this kind of learning?
