Why learn with us?

At 414 Kiting we offer snowkiting & wingfoil lessons from December-May for all levels, and most ages (we recommend that children be at least 35kg). We offer both group and private lessons with our experienced team of IKO/IWO-qualified instructors, who between them are able to run lessons in quite a few languages.

  • Lessons for all levels
  • Safe and spacious learning environments
  • New equipment
  • No kite-sharing once you’ve learned the basic controls
  • An awesome team of highly qualified (and all IKO licensed), experienced instructors
  • Flexible course dates
  • IKO/IWO certification at the end of your course
  • No wind? Then you don’t pay – we think that’s fair!

Lessons every day of the winter

  • Our lessons are available for all levels from complete beginner through to advanced.
  • We don’t restrict you to set course dates or days, so whether it’s a one-day taster or a longer course we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Small groups

  • Our group snowkiting & wing foil lessons have a maximum of 3 students and we give each student their own equipment as soon as they’ve mastered the basics of steering.

Safety comes first

  • Our incredible and multi-lingual team of instructors are all IKO/IWO certified, and all our water-based teaching is done from boats in the safety of the middle of the lake.
  • Our courses are run with the only the latest F-One equipment, and are designed to make learning as safe and fun as possible – no corners cut.
