Semi private Kitesurfing Courses Tarifa

It is also important to know that the instructors with the most experience at Kiteobsession will be the ones in charge of teaching the semi-private classes.

This course can be for any student, for a total beginner with cero experience or if you have done it before and you would like to continue with your progress improving faster.

Attention to Detail

How many days will a semi-private kitesurfing course go for? However many you’d like and need. Classes usually go for 3 hours a day, but if you’d like more hours we can adapt to this without a problem.

LSemi-private courses are tailored to you because we have students that start with cero experience but others have done it before, so with the daily planning of the classes we can adapt to the needs of each one of our students.
This type of course is often recommended to people that have already started a course some time ago and would now like to continue to learn from where they left.


There are also kitesurfing students that after a group course would prefer to switch to a semi-private course to allow for more time with the instructor and the kite.

But above all and because of the conditions in Tarifa, many beginners with cero experience will want to learn in a semi-private course from day one to guarantee the maximum attention from the instructor.

Kids – Kitesurf Tarifa

Let’s not forget about the kids, since we have a semi-private kitesurfing course specially adapted for kids. It goes for 2 hours with an instructor dedicated for kids. Thanks to our experience we know that 2 hours is ideal for kids, on top of being less expensive.
Within our team we have numerous instructors that specialize in working with kids and making sure they have a great time, learning faster and above all safely. Instructors like Toni, Córdoba, Clara or Jesús will be the right choice for younger students.
The big difference between a group course and a semi-private one is that with the semi-private class the instructor will be next to the students 100% of the time, since with the group lesson the instructor will need to attend the other two students that might be far away, and you end up having the instructor with you only half the time.

If you would like to start from cero with a semi-private course the progression will be much faster, saving days of classes. Many times you will progress the same in 3 days of semi-private lessons than in 4 or 5 days of group classes… Although the progression will always depend on each student.

You will have more time to enjoy practicing with the board and the kite. Some students will be able to ride back to where they started or reduce their walking time back to the starting point. The usual question… ¿How many days will it take me to ride? It all depends on each person. There are students that are able to achieve this in 2 or 3 days and others will need 5 or 6… Either way, with a semi-private course you will save hours and days, learning faster and in less time.

When you finish your course, if you’d like we can give you a certificate of the level achieved in accordance with the IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) which will allow you to continue your course at another spot or to rent equipment if you have made it to that level.

All kitesurfing gear is included in the course.

We supply the full equipment: wetsuit, harness, floatation vest, and the kitesurfing equipment, kite, control barr and board of the highest quality brands like Cabrinha, Naish, Brunotti and O’Neill.

Radio helmets so you can always listen to your instructor even when you’re in the water.

We also have all the insurance and licenses needed to practice this activity in Tarifa.

We work with 3 rescue boats.

What do I need to bring to my kitesurfing course?

Comfortable clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, lots of water or juice to drink during the class and above all lots of motivation and energy because you will sure enjoy it.

Safety and experience


Why do I need to take a kitesurfing course?

Kitesurfing is a risky sport and it’s very important to learn it the correct way, having safety as a priority and under the guidance of a professional instructor.

At Kiteobsession we have kitesurfing courses for every level of experience, from people who would only like to spend a day at the beach and try out how it feels to fly a kite, to those who want to spend the weekend practicing a new activity, or those who want to learn everything they need in order to become an independent kitesurfer.

Also, if you already have some experience with kitesurfing but need to be reminded of certain concepts, or would like to have an instructor by your side, we have refresher and advanced courses so you don’t have to start from cero and you can pick up from where you left at your last course.

And of course, we also have advanced courses to learn the latest tricks in Strapless, Freestyle or Hydrofoil.

Who can take a kitesurfing course?

Anybody that feels attracted and motivated to learn kitesurfing. The only requirement is to know how to swim so you can be comfortable in the water.

If you want to do it and feel motivated we will do everything we can to teach you and help you become a happy kitesurfer.

Can children learn how to kitesurf?

Of course they can and we have courses adapted to kids with instructors that specialize in children. The only requirement is the child must weigh at least 35kg. Although it will also depend on the strength of the wind and this is why these courses are only taught on light to moderate wind days.

Which course should I choose?

You should choose the one that most suits your time schedule, goal and budget… There are 3 types of courses according to the amount of students.

Group Kitesurfing Course. With a maximum of 4 students per instructor. Each student will have his own personal equipment including wetsuit, harness, helmet and floatation vest, plus a kite to share between 2 students. In short: 4 students, 2 kites, 1 instructor.

This is the course that students usually choose when they want to learn from cero, and especially if you’re travelling with friends or family. You can take as many days of kitesurfing group course as you like, from one to any number of days.

Semi-private Kitesurfing Course. Two students only with one instructor. Each student will have his own personal equipment, and we can use one or two kites depending on the students’ skill level, the conditions of the wind and the judgment of the instructor. This course is ideal to share the experience with a friend, a daughter/son or your partner.

The biggest secret to improve faster with kitesurfing is the amount of time you have the instructor’s attention. This is why the semi-private course is the perfect way to save time on your learning process.

Private Kitesurfing Course. Without a doubt this is the best and fastest way to learn, especially if you would like to save time or days of your learning process. The student has the whole set-up for himself and one instructor to teach him and give me instant feedback.

Any of these three types of courses are suitable for a beginner with cero experience.

Comfortable clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, lots of water or juice to drink during the class and above all lots of motivation and energy because you will sure enjoy it.

What can I do if I would like to continue after I finish my course?

You can continue to take more classes, however many you want or need. Students usually want to extend their first course.

According to the level that you’ve reached, you will be able to add extra days to your group course or choose to do a private (or semi-private) course to make the most of it.

What are the school’s safety measures?
