Kitekurs at Larkollen

Norway Kitekurs

Larkollen & Sletterøyene

When we think of to learn to kitesurfing, we dream of finding large, deserted beaches with a stable wind. But finding such beaches in Norway is no easy task. Oslo Kiteskole searched ... and finded it . Sletterøyene are a set of islands south of Oslo, with flat, grassy and stable winds from all directions, these conditions are perfect to take our first steps in kitesurfing. In this place there are also beaches to bath, good walks, wildlife, birds and excellent conditions for camping. We have boats that take us there and will follow us throughout the whole weekend course.

Weekend courses starts friday 20hs and finishes sunday 15-16 hs

About Oslo Kiteskole

Why Oslo Kiteskole?

Oslo kiteskole proposes a better way so you can get the most out of the course. Oslo Kiteskole is the only school that can stretch their teaching hours from 7am until gets dark, why? because our school pitch camp on the islands during the weekend with the participants, this gives the participants the opportunity to practice many more hours. With us you are the one who set your limits.

Oslo Kiteskole is one of the few schools working in deep water with the participants from the first day of course, depending on the wind conditions and the skills of the participants. All Participants wishing to go to deep water should give the necessary level for this purpose. We have boats that give us the necessary assistance throughout the whole weekend course. Each participant can take the break when needed, our school is concerned that there is always an instructor available when the student is ready.

At night, the participants sit around the fire, make a barbacue and talk about all the things the have learned during the day.

We take you to a unique experience!

Practical kiting

We started when the wind comes no matter what time. We still flying the kite on land several hours until until we have very good control, if there are good wind conditions, we can train for more than 12hs! And if wind conditions permit and participants have good control, we go to the the water!

We learn bodydraging downwind, directional bodydraging, bodydraging upwind and relaunch the kite from deep water. If there are good wind conditions we can try waterstart.

Sunday

Sunday we hold on until 15-16

Depending on the level of each participant we continued the day using all the knowledge learned, if wind conditions permit we continue to try to work on the water with the "waterstart".
