Is it possible to learn kitesurfing in 2 or 3 days?
Here it is an interesting question. Which would be the right answer?
Ok. Too much wind is equal to disaster.
You will put yourself at risk. It is easy to damage the equipment and in any case, you will understand nothing because things happen so fast that you will be absolutely overwhelmed.
As important as the right wind force is the right kite spot.
A wavy spot and/or deep water will complicate things very much
it is almost impossible to control the kite when waves are crashing against you, and deep water will provoque you to lose control of the kite as you will have no balance
Equipment … to have the right equipment will simplify things highly
never underestimate the power of a kite, a small kite will not make things easier.
A small kite acts somehow as a whip, it will be very hard to control, also it will move much too fast for you to be able to dosificate the tension on the kite lines.

Summer in Mallorca it is a perfect time to learn kitesurfing. You may ask why? Quite simple. Summer in Mallorca has the perfect combination of elements that, blended adequately, offer the best guarantee to overcome the obstacles and learn to kitesurf.
This summer we had a group of 3 young german guys, ages 14 and 17. We already wrotte an entry to our blog some time ago with the photos and the details of the progressions of how Vincent, the youngest of the three guys, successfully managed to start kitesurfing in both directions on his second day – the fifth hou- of kite lessons.
Our entry today is about the oldest of our 3 guys, his name Xaver. The next collection of photos shows how Xaver progression took place and how he managed to ride, kitesurfing fluently in both directions. The equipment that Xaver used during his lessons and practices was, a flysurfer Peak foil kite of 12 mts of size and an XL door flysurfer kiteboard of 170×50 cms.
In a future entry we will add some more photos of the moment in which Xaver was offered the chance to ride with a high aspect ratio kite foil, the SONIC FR 18 mts of Flysurfer.

Happy kitesurfing lessons with Xaver – summer in Mallorca
