The kite license

The Kite license serves as a qualification certificate for kitersurfers who have demonstrated their knowledge and skills in a practical and theoretical test. The training is very practice-oriented and renounces deeper theory, 1h with examination. Thus, the basic certificate is the ideal foundation for entry into the kiting.
