What Kitesurf Level do I have?

Do you already had a kite course and do you like to come in Sardinia, at the Punta Trettu Kite Beach, to improve your kite level? Do you like to attend a kite course but you don’t know which kite level do you have and you are wondering if you are still beginner or intermediate or advanced? In this post we will try to help you to understand your kite level.

#1. Am I beginner or Advanced?

Taking into account the kite level scale, we can divide kitesurfers in 2 main groups: Advanced and Beginners.

Advanced on kitesurfing are people that are able to ride upwind (they have reached the Kite Level 5) and they can solve all emergency situations while kitesurfing.

Beginner on kitesurfing are people that have never done kitesurf or people that did kitesurfing lessons in the past but have not yet reached the Kite Level 5 (beginners are people that are not able to ride upwind and that are not able to solve all emergency situations).

#2. Which is the Kite Course for me if I am not Advanced but I had Kite Lessons in the past?

In case you are not completely beginner as you have already some kite experience, the best way to choose the right kite course is to ask directly to the kite school which is the most suitable kite course for your level and needs. Usually a good kite school do not start a kite course from the beginning if you do not need it, but will check your kite level at the first kite lesson starting from the skills you need to improve.

  • the average time needed to most of people to complete each kite level is approximately 3 hours of kite lessons. So, with a kite course of 3 hours, you should be able to get one kite level, with a kite course of 6 hours you should be able to get two kite levels, with a kite course of 9 hours you should be able to get three kite levels, and so on. For exemple, if your Kite Level is 3 and you would like to get Kite Level 4, you would need approximatly 3 hours of kite lessons (so you would need a kite course of three hours).

Anyway, please note that the individual attitudes to learn kitesurfing can be very different from student to student. Those attitudes can depend on age, athletic and mental conditions, etc, and therefore the time needed to learn kitesurf can be different for each student.
