Kitesurfing in Denmark and on the Baltic Sea

Water, sun, and wind, add a kite and board and you have the ingredients for this awesome fun, nature sport in Europe's top location with ideal wind conditions. Kitesurfing offers a truly breathtaking dimension in the boardsport discipline. Due to the kite's uplift, kitesurfers experience a feeling of weightlessness. Kite School Tours has been RWTH Aachen's kite camp partner for 15 years. No previous knowledge is required; you just need to bring respect and love of nature and have fun learning something new with others, along with enjoying cooking together and bonfires together.

In our kite course we teach beginners not only theory but also practical skills like set up and take down, starting, landing, relaunch, trapeze technique, riding one-handed and "blind", body drags, water starts, riding, and coasting. Advanced individuals receive supervision while learning to ride upwind, carving jibes, switched stance, transitions, grabs, and big airs.

Arrival and Departure

Camps are held weekly from May 8 to September 25, beginning Sunday afternoons. It is possible to acquire the VDWS International Kite License. The optional additional week "Supervised Kitesurfing" is for everyone, who's heart jumps just while watching, and is the perfect choice for experienced surfers to be able to independently kitesurf after the camp.
