Do you have questions? We have answers!

It always blows at least 16 knots and often even harder. In the afternoon the wind sometimes decreases a bit so it is also good to bring large sizes. the Golden rule: Bring all the sizes of kites you have!!

Have done a downwinder at least once and can sail upwind independently and perform a self rescue.

Always good people around! Our own KiteActive team is guiding you along the coast together with our Brazilian heroes! The group is advanced / intermediate kiters from 30-50 years old. Positive vibes only!

The camp will be hosted by roderick pijls
