  • IS IT HARD TO LEARN KITESURFING
    The truth is that everyone learns at their own pace. There is no maximum or minimum time frame to learn kitesurfing since everyone starts with different skills, expectations, and goals. With that being said, if we had to put a number down, we could say that most people are able to complete the first three steps mentioned above (learning to fly a kite, body-dragging in the water and get on riding) in an average of 8 to 14 hours of lessons (from total beginner to starting to ride). Often it takes longer than that, rarely it's less. Why does it take so much time? Well, you guessed it: there are many things to learn! And a good instructor will not only show you how to kite but will teach you how to become independent in all facets of the sport.

    Essaouira is also called "the wind city of Africa", and thanks to the constant wind, and huge open spaces for kiting, Essaouira is one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world.
