Do you want to test "kite-foil ? 

At the moment, we often talk about it, it's the one that revolutionizes the world of kite, wind, surf and wake. The principle is simple: we add a kind of mast under the board which makes us take off from the water! Always pulled by the kite, the speed gives us the impression of flying! Activity to test for thrill seekers! 

A "side shore" wind, why is it better?

The side shore is the wind that comes from the water towards the ground, and that is parallel to the beach! The wind is ideal to start kitesurfing!
