Oulu Kiteschool Lappis Snowkite

During the lessons we begin going through the necessarily safety and theory details of this sport. After this we start with a small 2 sqm trainer kite to get the feel to the wind and kite controls. When we gain control of the trainer kite we progress to the bigger kites used for snow kiting.

The target for 3 hour intro course is to have ability to control big kite without skis and snowboard. Some fast learners might progress to skis in the first 3 hours. If customers want a full course they can book double the 3-hour course where the target is to obtain independent snow kiting ability.
