Hydro Foiling LessonsKitesurfing in Watamu, Kenya

Lessons start from $65 per hour and we would recommend that for at least your first lesson you take a 2 hr session to get introduced into the sport properly.  Lessons include all saftey equipment, the use of all equipment required and the radio helmets.

At Tribe we have developed a foiling program where we use slingshots school mast system where you can graduate from a shorter master up to a longer one.  This system makes the process of flying on the foil easier to grasp as it makes the foiling flight feeling less aggressive and gives you an opportunity of getting use to riding a board with a foil underneath, with out the repercussions of being thrown off the board every 2 seconds which is common when learning on alternative equipment.

To aid progression on the course even further we also be including radio coaching in our lessons using our BBtalkin two way radios. Having full time communication with your instructor is always useful when learning to kite surf. This is down to one being able to get more from each individual lesson by not having to wait to come back to the beach to get feed back. Secondly it allows for small tweaks on the fly that would not be possible without this system. This system particularly shines with foiling where the balance points are so finite at an early stage, allowing for the instructor to give you real time feed back really does make all the difference.

In order to start hydrofoiling you need to have good kite control so that all your focus can be placed on the board. If you are interested in learning this great aspect of the sport then we would expect a minimum level of riding ability. Helmets must be worn at all times !
