Course Evolution

This course is designed to get the most out of learning together.

One instructor for the two of you, radio helmets and if conditions and skill permits, 2 kites in your hands.


Notions of wind, setting up equipment, learning to fly the kite, keeping it still, taking off, landing, using one hand and the other…while on the sand, you will learn to master the kite perfectly.


Everything we learned on the sand will put into practice in the water. We will generate the power necessary to drag ourselves in the water (body drag). From here, the fun is already increasing.


Once we control the kite, we will start exercises with the board: put the board on your feet without forgetting that we have a kite to control, keep your body position – always back to the wind- and if all goes well, we will start to move the kite and try our first attempts to stand up on the board. This is the famous water start.

From here we only have to practice until we get to ride our first meters.


This varies depending on wind conditions, the type of course you are doing and on each person. We all learn at a different pace.

In a semi-private course you generally learn faster than with a group course as you have a dedicated instructor and will have the kite in your hands at all times.

For those with previous experience or who wish to advance beyond the basic level, we offer the possibility of adding intermediate levels that cover skills such as transitions, jumps, hydrofoil and kite surfing among other advanced aspects of kitesurfing.

These courses are designed to improve your existing skills and take you to the next level of mastery in this exciting water sport.

At the end of your course you are able to obtain international level IKO (International Kitesurf Organization) certification that will help you continue elsewhere or rent equipment.



Kitesurfing is a sport that must be learned correctly to avoid risks. That is why safety and the guidelines of a professional instructor must be taken into account.

At Kite Obsession we have courses designed for any level, whether you want to spend a day on the beach and try to control the kite, spend a weekend doing a new activity or learn everything you need to be an independent kitesurfer.

Additionally, if you already are a beginner to intermediate kitesurfer but need to remember concepts, we offer a “refresh” course and some more advanced courses to evolve from where you left it.

And, of course, we also have advanced courses to learn the latest strapless tricks, freestyle or hydrofoil.

Anyone who feels attracted and motivated to learn kitesurfing. The only requirement is to know how to swim and to feel comfortable in the water.

If you have the desire and motivation, we put all our efforts into helping you learn and becoming a happy kitesurfer.

Of course. We also have adapted courses and specialised monitors for children.

Generally, these courses will be taught on days with light or moderate winds.

The one that best suits your time, objective, budget….

Kite Obsession offers 3 types of courses depending on the number of students, always under the care and attention of an instructor.

Kitesurf group course: They consist of 3/4 students and 1 teacher. This course is designed for people who already know each other and want to enjoy their first kiteboarding experience all together. Each student has their own personal material (wetsuit, harness, helmet, vest). The kite is shared between 2 people.

Semi-private kitesurfing course: Only 2 students with 1 teacher. Each one has their personal material. 1 or 2 kites can be used depending on the students skills, the conditions and the instructor’s decision. It is the ideal course to share with a friend, a family member, a partner…

The real secret to progress quickly in kitesurfing lies in the time that the teacher is by your side. Therefore, a semi-private course is a good way to save time learning.

Private Kitesurf Course: This is the best way to learn, especially if you want to save learning time. The student with all the equipment and an instructor teaching and correcting at all times. This is the tailor made lesson with constant attention from your instructor.

Any of these three courses can be done by a beginner from level zero.

An instructor with extensive experience, dedicated exclusively to teaching kitesurfing in Tarifa with its particular wind conditions. All of them with an international IKO (International Kitesurf Organization) and/or National FAV (Andalusian Sailing Federation) qualification.

Most importantly, they are passionate about this sport and enjoy teaching and sharing their knowledge.

At the end of your kitesurfing course, if you wish, you will receive an IKO international level certificate, which will help you continue your course elsewhere or be able to rent material.

We provide all the material: wetsuits, harness, vest, helmet and all kitesurfing equipment: kite, bar and board from the best brands and quality such as Core, O’Neill and Crazy Fly. In our private and semi-private courses you will have radio headphones to always listen to your instructor.
Comfortable clothing, sunglasses, sun protection, cap or hat. Lot’s of water and above all, enthusiasm and energy because you are going to have a really great time!
It is very common that once you finish your lessons, you ask for more (meaning that you loved it!). Regardless of the level reached, the courses can be extended for as long as you need. There is no standard course. You can start with 2 or 3 days and increase them according to your evolution and your desire. There is also the option of adding more hours to the course since the beginning so that it adapts to your needs: 3-hour private course, 4-hour semi-private course, etc…

The first and most important is the experience of our instructors who will ensure your safety so that you can enjoy at all times.
We have new and top quality equipment, in perfect condition.

In addition, 3 rescue boats that will always be attentive to all students in the water.

And of course we have the civil liability and accident insurance required by the Tarifa city hall to be able to have a kitesurf school license.

We will refund your money. In Kite Obsession you only pay for the hours of classes you take.

If you need anything else, do not hesitate to contact us.


We are not just a Kitesurf school, we are a community that shares laughter, challenges and epic moments. Explore the opinions of our students and understand why each experience with us is unique.
