Kitesurfing is a sport that during the last years has become very popular in Mallorca island.    Alcudia, in North Mallorca, definitely has one of the biggest and perhaps the most beautiful beaches of our island.

The only particular thing to consider and keep in mind is that, we are not allowed to use Alcudia beach for kitesurfing purposes during the tourist season.

which means, from 1th May until 30 October, the beaches are populated and there’s a service of life savers which among their obligations, is to monitorize and care for the safety of beach users

We will have to wait then until the end of the tourist season, from 1th November and until 30th April, when the beach is empty, to profite the chance to kitesurf on it.

It was during this period, when Martina and Toby visited us, he, already had some knowledge of kitesurfing, she, a total beginner.

On a day of light-medium Southeast breeze we arranged the kite lessons for Martina



In the first photo, on the broad part of the beach not far from the Port of Alcudia, free of any obstacles and without anyone who may get annoyed or hurted, we started our kite lessons


The first kite we chosed to start the training was a Flysurfer “Cool” model, this is a open cell softkite, which is very easy to control and which offers a great stability and handling


On the next step, once Martina is managing enough control while standing, she starts to fly her kite while laying on the sand which gives her the possibility to make the precise movements with the kitebar, which she will later do on the water when bodydragging

After that, arrives the moment to get on the water, this time flying a relaunchable kite


Practicing standing up, then on her knees and on a further step, bodydragging


Then arrives the awaited moment to change to a bigger size and start positioning on the kiteboard


Martina stand up on the kiteboard and starts riding. This first track, thanks to the shallow waters of Alcudia beach will be in direction towards the beach


And in the last photo of this small kite report, we can see Martina riding in perfect control and kitesurfing in both directions


This kitesurfing lessons took place during 6 hours, taken on 2 consecutive days.
Martina, definitely, was a skilled kite student.
Congratulations Martina, we wish you a kitesurfing life full of success.
