KTS40 Windsurfing Mixed Adventures

Windsurfing is a technical sport that requires extremely solid foundations. Precisely for this reason KTS40 focused in creating courses that follow the philosophy of understanding and knowing how to do. In fact, every lesson regardless of the level is always made up of a succession of small steps, each composed of a theoretical part and a practical part. Even in courses for children, while not neglecting the aspect playing-technical, there have been adopted methods to achieve an effective learning environment so that the young learner can then improve without undue effort.

  • All tuition

  • All equipment

This package doesn't include accommodation. However, we do offer on-site accommodation at an additional cost.

There are four double rooms, one triple room and one quadruple room available, all of which are furnished with the necessary amenities including a private bath/ shower and balcony. If you’d prefer a private apartment, the residence offers one bedroom apartments and a studio apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and balcony. General facilities on the campsite include outdoor BBQ area and gardens, tennis court, WiFi, restaurant, a small supermarket and onsite laundry facilities.

You'll then move on to theory lesson on the first rule of precedence, and practical exercises include position sailing and beam reach.

KTS40, following VDWS teaching methods and guidelines, has developed a program that encourages the learner to develop practical skills and, with the addition of theory sessions, to fully understand the techniques of sailing. This guarantees a fast, fun way to learn. The KST40 training course consists of 10 consecutive steps. The first 3 steps are usually grouped together into one lesson. For anyone who already has sailing knowledge and experience, the choice of which step to start from will be accurately assessed with an expert instructor. Individual lessons can also be incorporated to help you make quicker progress. Each step lasts 2 hours. With more students present, the first lesson may last 2 and a half hours. Lessons are in groups of at least 2 students.
