Our kite courses

Instructors

Our kite courses are always led by IKO certified instructors. This means that we teach safety and technicians according to international standards and that you can easily proceed with another school connected to IKO. More about IKO – opens in new window

Equipment

We use equipment from mainly Airush and mostly tube kites to enable you to go from snow to water, and because there is less tangles with tube kites during training. 

ÅreKite provides all kite equipment during the course and also accounts for any damage that occurs on the equipment during normal use. Should the student, negligently, damage the equipment by negligence, the student may be liable for compensation.

Number of students

We apply IKOs rules and have only one kite in the air per instructor. But if you were to get so far you can practice on your own during the course then you can do it. Normally we have a maximum of two participants per instructor, but if you want to be more people you may, but the training will not be as effective. At an extra cost you can book individual lessons, otherwise we will try to book another participant for the course time.

Own equipment

As a student you should bring your own helmet as well as ski or snowboard equipment. Also be sure to dress extra warm with the opportunity to take off layers if it were to get too hot. ÅreKite is not responsible for your personal equipment.

Physical fitness and illness

It doesn’t take any special physical condition to snowkite, but sometimes we may have to hike in snow a few hundred meters to get to where we’re going to kite. If you have any illness or injury, such as diabetes, which can affect you during the course, please notify your instructor before starting the course. We take your personal safety very seriously.

Coffee /snacks

Feel free to bring your own snacks /coffee depending on the length of the course. We will contact you before to agree on the location and if there may be a restaurant nearby. We always have hot drinks out on the mountain.
