2024, it's pouring!

With 2 fantastic events planned again: Den TV-TAS and the IJsselmeer crossing. Because there is a lot of interest in both tours, here is an official press release so that you can prepare yourself as best as possible and how you can ensure that you are there this year.

In the course of next week we will announce who is on the next starting list. This year we will again work with the same system where the registration date is important, you must pass our screening and be put on 'Green' by the KiteActive team.

What level do you have to meet for Den TV-TAS?

You can handle a long downwinder (60km+), you have made several downwinders and regularly kitesurf at 25+ knots on the North Sea.

We are looking for people with the right level. That is why you first go through a screening with us if you have not yet been on one of our trips. If you want to participate, you must be able to provide one of the following items after your reservation:

  • Finish proof from Hoek to Helder
  • You have been on one of our trips and someone from our team confirms the correct level
  • Via a well-known app (eg, Strava / Garmin / Polar) a track record of a long downwinder of more than 60 km in 25+ knots
  • A track record of a jump of more than 8 meters high via one of the well-known apps
  • You give the correct answer to our questions that we ask the participants

What you must be able to confirm at all times:
1. Is that your equipment is in order (no old, worn-out equipment, if we see this before departure we will not take you with us)
2. You declare to us that you are fit and exercise regularly and have a good basic condition to successfully complete this trip

TV bag updates this year 2024

There are a few adjustments we will be adding to this year's tour.

  • The biggest adjustment is that this year we also want to hold the tour during the week, so there is a much better chance of multiple editions this year!
  • Stricter controls level, a questionnaire is sent to everyone in which your level is tested. Finish proof from corner to bright alone is not enough this year! You really have to convince us.
  • All participants must a membership number is required of the KNRM to show our support for our rescuers in need!
  • You can also raise more money for this charity.
  • During each downwinder, 3 wildcards are given away. Love our social Find out how you can qualify for this!!

If I register now, when can I join?

For this season there are currently approx. 160 people on the starting list. Of those 160 people, there are now +- 70 people with the level status: Green. Then you have to assume that many people always drop out at the last minute, because other things are more important in their agenda?!?! Last year we were able to make 2 TV-TAS downwinders, and this year there will probably be more because from now on we will also run the trip during the week, which means that you can still register.

Next week, February 14, the next participant lists will be announced and the next participants will receive an email. You will also receive an email if you are on Standby (there is a good chance that you will be able to join the next tour!!)

How can I best prepare?

Read the stories from the past downwinders to prepare yourself well: 'the story of Den TV-TAS

Make sure you are fit! Try to take all the kite sessions you can and make a downwind regularly. Don't forget to take challenging conditions on the North Sea (30+ knots). In addition, it also helps if you have a good basic condition.

Make sure your materials are in perfect order. We do not take old kites in poor condition on this trip. You really have to rely on your material for many parts. Make sure your lines are checked, your binding & fin screws are tightened. You must be able to trust your material blindly. Before departure, your equipment will be checked by our team. If it is not in good condition, you will be refused entry to the tour and you will lose your registration fee.

Check the conditions of the tour. Make sure you are not faced with any surprises!

What else do you need for the tour?

  • Waterproof (TV) Bag
  • Waterproof case for your mobile
  • Safe TRX watch (optional and available for rent and purchase from us)
  • Impact vest (available for rent or purchase)
  • Food and drinks on the go (energy bars)

Furthermore, we are of course very much looking forward to it!! Let's hope for a few nice weekends with a lovely NW or SE wind! The great wait has begun!

What level do you have to meet for the IJsselmeer crossing?

You have been kitesurfing for a while (more than 50 sessions) and you have already done a few downwinders. You can save yourself independently on the water and you know how to carry out a self-rescue. Standing on one leg for a long time or sailing upwind for an hour is no problem for you.

What you must be able to confirm at all times:
1. Is that your material is in perfect condition (not old, worn-out material, if we see this on Saturday morning we will not take you with us)
2. You declare to us that you are fit and exercise regularly and have a good basic condition to successfully complete this trip.

If I register now, when can I join?

For this season there are currently approx. 60 people on the starting list. Then you have to assume that many people always drop out at the last minute because other things are more important in their agenda?!?! Last year we were able to make 0x IJsselmeer crossings, mainly because you need specific wind that often coincides with a TV-TAS downwinder. A total of 50 people will participate in the crossing, so make sure you register as soon as possible and who knows, you might be able to attend this unique event this year!

Next week, February 14, the next participant lists will be announced and the next participants will receive an email. You will also receive an email if you are on Standby (there is a good chance that you will be able to join the next tour!!)

Make sure you are fit! Try to take all the kite sessions you can and do a downwinder regularly. Don't forget to take challenging conditions on the North Sea (30 knots +). In addition, it also helps if you have a good basic condition.

Make sure your materials are in perfect order. We do not take old kites in poor condition on this trip. You really have to rely on your material for many parts. Make sure your lines are checked, your binding & fin screws are tightened, and you can trust your gear implicitly. Before departure, your equipment will be checked by our team. If it is not in good condition, you will be refused entry to the tour and you will lose your registration fee.

Tarifa flight hacks > fly return for €110

Tarifa, the kitesurfing mecca of Europe. With its endlessly long beaches and high wind certainty, this is the place for kite surfers. As soon as you drive into Tarifa you understand why everyone is so lyrical about this. The impressive view grabs you every time. Tarifa is so south that you can even see Morocco. The entire town is designed for surfers, which you will notice from the many surf shops you come across and the chill vibe that hangs there. The Spanish hospitality mixed with the surf vibe creates a great atmosphere.


but how do you reach this top spot? We will help you with great flying tips!


Malaga (AGP) airport

Most people fly to Malaga. Below we have listed a few good flights for you. From Malaga you take the bus that takes you the last part to Tarifa in about 2 hours. The bus leaves directly in front of the airport exit, so no difficult search for the right stop.


The best option is to rent a car at Malaga Airport. Because it is off season, the prices for car rental are not too bad. Think of prices around €15 per day.

A group app will be created well in advance so that you can share the car with several people!

Seville (Svq) airport

It is also possible to fly to Seville and enjoy Spanish city life for a few days after your kitesurfing holiday. There is so much beauty to see in Seville. In the city you will be amazed by the beautiful authentic buildings with Moroccan influences. The advantage of flying to Seville is that you can rent a car here very cheaply.

The last option is to fly to Jerez de le Frontera. This is a small nice town located just above the coast. The route from Jerez to Tarifa is very fun to drive! If you drive along the coast you will pass the small surfing village of El Palmar de Vejer. As soon as the waves are good, this village is flooded with surfers. The waves here are also very good for beginners. Definitely worth a stop for the ultimate Spanish surf atmosphere.

Our stay in Tarifa

We have been staying at the WildHouse for three years in a row. This place has exactly what we are looking for: chill atmosphere, spacious garden, nice rooms. This year we have rented the entire WildHouse and we have plenty of space to make it a fantastic week! WildHouse is located on a hill overlooking the ocean. In the morning you will be woken up quietly by the sound of two donkeys that belong to the WildHouse. The DJ table and Soundbox are with us so we are going to have a party again in the evening.

The yoga enthusiasts among us have nothing to complain about, behind the WildHouse there is a beautiful yoga yurt, where you can start or end the day with a wonderful yoga session.

It promises to be a fantastic week! We have been heating things up with friends in Spain for a number of weeks. And we have already had some nice kite sessions. The weather is also wonderful! You can bring your swimwear, and that in February 😉 See you soon.

Why should you go to Zanzibar?🏄‍♂️✨

This winter we would like to take you to an exotic location that makes the heart of every kite surfer beat faster: Zanzibar! This enchanting island in the Indian Ocean is not only a paradise for sun worshipers, but also a kitesurfing heaven on earth. Let's kite together in the sun and dance under the African starry sky!

Why are you going to Zanzibar this winter?

Zanzibar is known for its pearly white sandy beaches, crystal clear lagoons and perfect wind conditions – the ideal environment for kitesurfers of all levels. From beginner-friendly lagoons to challenging waves for experts, this island offers a range of spots to improve your skills and learn new tricks. In addition, it is a unique holiday destination with a great atmosphere! Want to work on new tricks with other kiters or have a beer on the roof terrace in the evening with a spectacular sunset? Or swinging among the Rastafarians in the local reggea bar after being on the water all day? We could go on and on coming up with reasons why you should come with us 🙂

Cheap Flights to Zanzibar

We do our best to make your trip as affordable as possible! There are numerous airlines that offer good flight options to this paradise island. KLM flies direct back and forth from Amsterdam on Thursdays and Sundays. Do you want to save money? Then try looking for flights with momondo.nl to Dar es Salaam. This sometimes saves more than 100 euros. From Dar es Salaam you can choose to take the ferry to the island if you like adventure for 35$. Or you can take a local flight for 70$. Furthermore, it is especially good to keep an eye on ticket comparison websites for the very best deals. We are flexible in terms of dates and you can always contact us. Need help finding your perfect flight? Let let us know and we will arrange it!

Kitesurfing for beginners and advanced

We also call Zanzibar the kitesurf breeding pond. This is because the conditions cannot actually be better for learning it. Lovely warm, blue water, standing range, not too choppy, and no strong gusty winds. But also for the advanced kiter you can make great downwinders along the reef with clean waves. You can practice new tricks in the flat water lagoon and thanks to our team we ensure that you learn as much as possible on the water!

One-time Offer for you!!

To make this kitesurfing experience even more special, we offer a one-off discount of 15% on all our packages in Zanzibar! Book before November 1, 2023 and take advantage of this exclusive offer. When booking, use the discount code: FRIENDS 23

What else is there to do?

Zanzibar offers more than just kitesurfing. The island has a rich history and culture, with influences from Africa, Arabia and Europe. After a day on the water, sample the local cuisine, wander through narrow alleys in Stone Town, or join a spice tour to discover the secrets of Zanzibar's exotic spices.

We hope this newsletter has inspired you to take the plunge and brave the waves of Zanzibar. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned kite surfer, this tropical island has everything you need for an unforgettable experience.

TV BAG, Wad n TOUR! 💥💥

The third edition of our gem: The TV-TAS downwinder. An indescribable adventure that cannot be explained in words, but we will try anyway.

The run-up to a TV-TAS event is always exciting, how will the wind blow? What does it do again? What will the conditions be like? Conditions are everything for the success of this trip. Namely a pure WNW 5-6 bft. First the forecasts for last Tuesday and Wednesday were perfect, both days 5bft west. A day before departure the wind was much further north than expected, so you have to sail close to the wind on Texel with high waves and 5-6bft, this upwinder is a real challenge. Fortunately, the wind also looked good for Thursday, so it was decided to move the downwinder one day. As we got closer to the start, the forecasts for Thursday became less and fingers crossed 🤞 that the wind would be good.

The die was cast. Starting Wednesday morning with a club of 25 enthusiastic kiters! Around half past nine everyone was gathered at the parking lot in Julianadorp and with the last briefing we flew onto the water! Wonderful wind that would only increase throughout the day. With our course towards the North Sea we took off and soon arrived on Texel. At high tide there were wonderful waves here to jump over at full speed or enjoy sailing with your wave board. All you had to do was bend over and you were already in the tube 🙂
With a short break on the Slufter we continued to the first crossing towards Vlieland. The Vliehors is a gigantic sandbank and here we once again found great conditions! Wave after wave, turn after turn! In the late afternoon we arrived at the @badhuys for a delicious lunch! Then we had one more task waiting for us, making a beautiful crossing to Terschelling! A great crossing where you pass several sandbanks and sail through breathtaking nature. The bus was ready for us at West aan Zee and we were taken to the hotel in West Terschelling where we had a delicious meal and were told the stories of the day.

Day 2

Arriving at day 2 everyone hoped that the wind was stronger than the predicted 16 knots. When we arrived at the beach, the wind was blowing well (18 knots) and we flew away with great friends. There are no breakwaters at Terschelling and there are beautiful flat pools that you can fly past at high speed. In no time we were at the end of Terschelling where a penguin and a number of bird watchers were waiting for us. The bird watchers spent the night on the Boschplaat and confirmed to us that they were not penguins but guillemots. After a smooth crossing to Ameland, the wind was still good and we gained good speed with the group. Arriving at beach tent Sjoerd, this was our last exit point to decide whether we can make the long crossing to Schier. The wind was good, forecast steady, everyone was still fit and full of energy and with 25 km to go we smelled our chance to go for the TV-TA….S. At the end of Ameland we had a final stop/briefing before the crossing. There were some showers forecast but visibility remained good and the wind was on when we left. Once you start the crossing, you immediately notice that you are in a tidal inlet. A bumpy ride with waves from all sides. When we were halfway, the wind became less and less and the rising current pushed us strongly into the Wadden Sea. Because the wind was decreasing, we had to make a pit stop on a sandbank in the middle between Ameland and Schier. From the sandbar it was still a few kilometers to Schiermonnikoog and the front club decided to finish it with the wind that was still there (the wind had weakened to 10-13 knots). When I looked back I saw 2 kites on the water that I could no longer relaunch. When we arrived at Schier, we called our friends at the KNRM Schier to be sure and it was quickly decided to set sail. Part of the group stayed on the sandbank because the wind was minimal and the 2 kiters who were on the water tested their patience. The rescuers arrived in no time and picked the remaining kiters from the water and brought everyone safely to Lauwersoog.

In the meantime, the wind had picked up again on Schiermonnikoog and we sailed the last kilometer to Pole 3 to finish the downwinder with the rest of the group.

Safety

So much happens during a TV bag downwinder that you will definitely need a while to process it all. Today we are working on how it could have been prevented and are making evaluations to make the tour even better and safer for next time. Unfortunately, there is always the risk that the wind will abandon you when you need it most...

And that is precisely why it is so important that every kiter, but also every water sports enthusiast, is a member of the KNRM. It costs you less than € 25 / year and you already help the men enormously! Our tour also raised a nice amount for this fantastic charity and we hope that we will never need the KNRM again, but it is a very nice feeling that they are always there for us! 🧡🧡🧡

lessons-zanzibar-kitesurf
Structure of the course
9 hours in total, 2 students, 1 instructor, 1 kite set

Learn how to rig the kite, learn all about your material, bar extensions, line lengths, different systems, kite types, etc.

Perhaps the most important thing during your course. Learn to take off/land independently and safely on the beach.

Various safety systems are explained, emergency situations are discussed and a step-by-step plan is drawn up so that you can save yourself and get to safety at any time.

What about priority rules? What about the weather? With what wind force do you use which size kite? What should you take into account? Enough to discuss during our joint theory

You can't practice enough with this, 80% of kitesurfing is kite control and a lot of attention is paid to this during the course

What happens if you lose your board? Then you can safely reach your board or the shore by upwind body dragging. It is also good training to be able to fly your kite with one hand.

Every kite spot is different, every forecast is different. We teach you what to pay attention to if you want to go kiting yourself.

Get to know the power zone and steer the kite through the entire wind window to generate as much power as possible. A really fun exercise!

It is easy to relaunch your kite in strong winds, but can you also manage with less wind?

If everything else goes well, we have finally arrived at the water start! We're trying to get you on the board.

Towards the end of the course, a lot of attention is paid to independence. We sometimes let you practice yourself (together with the other student) so that you can help each other and practice independently.

Is everything going well? Of course, we will occasionally visit you after the course and provide supervision. We also give you tips and tricks when we see that you have arrived at a bend or altitude walk!

FAQ

You will practice as much as possible independently, together with another kiter. The wind often blows all day at our destinations, so there is plenty of time for everyone to spend hours on the water.

If it happens that the group does not suit you in terms of beginners, you may receive private lessons. If you take private lessons, you will complete the course a little faster, but it is also a little more intensive. Our rule is that 7 hours private lesson equal to the nominal one 9 hours of shared lessons. Do you really want private lessons? Please let us know in advance so that we can see what is possible.

In principle, our packages are always such that you share your kite with someone in the beginning. Why? You can help each other a lot in the beginning and learn from each other. This saves you expensive lesson hours as you are often not completely independent after 9 hours. If we see that you go faster than the rest and there happens to be an extra kite set left, we are not the most difficult and you can use ours! In any case, we do our best to send everyone onto the water as much as possible.

Do you still want one after those 9 hours? own kite set and does your instructor agree that you can handle this in terms of level? Then you can get your own kite set for an additional €30/day

We may then reassign you to someone of the same level. Depending on the group, we can also decide that you get your own kite. This may incur additional costs.

Do you listen to your instructor's instructions during our kite lesson? And does a kite break during the lesson? Then you are insured against this.
Are you not listening to our instructor? For example, the instructor tells you to stay in a certain area and you keep moving on because you (quite understandably) like it so much? Then you are not insured if you break a kite.

We recommend that you check your travel insurance carefully to see whether it also covers extreme sports. to avoid disappointment and hassle on holiday. We work together with Sportzeker and then you are always covered for everything!

In principle yes, if the instructor assesses that the conditions are good enough for your level, you can grab and test all sizes of the latest material.

One person picks it up faster than the other and that is really no problem at all. If we see that you need extra lessons after the 1 hours, our instructor will take you aside and discuss with you how many hours he thinks you still need. Depending on whether other people in the group need extra lessons, the extra costs are: €9/hour for private lessons and €60/hour for shared lessons. You can also decide to exchange your rental for the rest of the week for 35 hours of extra lessons so that it does not cost you anything extra that week.
