KITE SURFING PUNTA CANA



If you love the ocean, the breeze and adrenaline then kite surfing is just the thing for you to try during your vacation in Punta Cana. The Kite Surfing School is located on the beach at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana which is an ideal place with good wind and ocean conditions.

The IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) certified instructors will teach you the skills and techniques of kite surfing from the ground up – or from the beach to the ocean! The instructors have more than 7 years of experience and have successfully instructed more than 1000 students since 2008. In just 3 days, you will go from zero to hero, as they say and learn everything you need to go kite surfing on your own.

When you graduate, you’ll receive an official IKO Certification vCard, which will be registered on the IKO website (www.ikointl.com) and will serve to verify your skill level if you go kite surfing in more than 60 countries around the world. With your IKO certification, you can also rent equipment from other locations and go surfing on your own. You can, of course, build on your skill level in the future if you decide to take your kite surfing to another level.

Start your journey to become a certified kite surfer in just 3 days with our private or small group lessons! Private lessons are for 1 person and group lessons are for minimum 2 persons.

IKO Level 1 (1 day): This level is the discovery level where you learn the basic concepts and techniques of kite surfing - on the beach. During this 3-hour course, you’ll learn about wind windows, safety, kite surfing theory, kite control, configuration of a powerful kite, launch, landing and self-rescue, how to control the kite on the ground and on the water.

IKO Level 2 (2 days): This 2-day course includes the instructions of IKO Level 1. This next step will teach you how to make your first body drag with down-wind and body drag with up-wind. You’ll learn how to make your first exits to the water and how to take short flights.

IKO Level 3 (3 days): This 3-days course includes the instructions of IKO Level 1 and Level 2. Learn how to do long rides on both sides and up-wind – the final steps before becoming a kite surfer and being able to surf on your own!

Advanced & Freestyle: If you need more instructions after completing the 3-day course or want to learn more advanced & freestyle techniques, these lessons are available. Transportation is not included when booking the advanced / freestyle lessons alone.

Tandem Kite Surfing: Not sure if kite surfing is for you? Or do you just want to try but not on your own? Choose our 30-minute tandem kite surfing and let a private instructor take you surfing on the ocean. This can be a good introductory to kite surfing if you’re curious about the sport but not sure if you want to fully commit. Tandem kite surfing is only available for persons weighing no more than 130 lbs. (60 kilograms). Transportation is not included when booking the tandem kite surfing alone.

WHAT'S INCLUDED: Pickup in hotels in Uvero Alto/Bavaro/Macao areas (not Punta Cana or Cap Cana), IKO certified kite boarding instructor, all gear and equipment.

It is imperative that children who want to kite surf can swim proficiently and are not afraid of the ocean! All children must be accompanied by an adult (18+ years old).
