Kitesurfing gives you a challenge you never get from running or taking a class in the gym, the adrenaline kick is just amazing! Kitesurfing gives you great training for the whole body, especially legs, back, belly and back. Fact is that you burn about 1000 kcal per hour when kitesurfing.
Fresh breeze, sun and water. It is a lovely feeling to master two of the Earth's elements while getting that perfect tan!
Have you ever complained about bad weather? Windy, cloudy and chilly weather will get a whole new meaning in your life when you can suddenly go kitesurfing! In fact, many kitesurfers start planning their lives after the weather forecast!
Get to know nice people. Kitesurfers are like a big family where everyone is welcome!
Imagine the sensation to glide over the water with your view towards the land. It's an indescribable feeling!!
Jump and make tricks. Kitesurfing is not only limited to being on the water surface. Using the power from the kite you can jump and do a vast number of tricks, there is no limit of how far you can develop.
Go on kitesurfing trips. Do you belong to the category that quickly gets bored from just lying in the sun on your holiday trips? Bring your kite and explore the most amazing kitespots the world has to offer!
Kitesurfing is just so damn nice! Hence, there is a high risk that you will fall in love with this wonderful sport!
Last but not least, to wash a beer down your throat after a day of kiting, is a most heavenly feeling!
I am Gustav, an ordinary guy who likes to kitesurf.
2009 was the year when I took a kitesurfing course in Gothenburg and like many others I got immediately hooked to this wonderful sport! It did not take many days before I bought my own kite equipment and since then I have literally been kitesurfing in all weather!
In 2011, I educated myself to become a kitesurfing instructor and now I take care of future kite addicts as often as I can. As an instructor, I am calm and pedagogical. For me it is important that you as a student not only should have a great day on the beach (and in the water) but also that you leave me with the confidence to be able to kitesurf independently without having me constantly watching your back.
At Gusty we do not instruct more than two people at once per instructor. We do this since it’s safer and since we don’t think it’s fair for you to just stand watching half of the time during the course.
See you in the water! / Gustav
My name is Tobias, a cool guy addicted to sports and nature!
I started kitesurfing in 2010 which still is one of my absolute favorite sports along crossfit and snowboarding. Previously, I worked as a snowboard instructor and in recent years as a gym instructor. Since 2013, I also work as a kite instructor for Gusty. As an instructor I often hear that I’m calm and clear, which I take as a compliment 🙂
Else, it is important to me (except you to have fun) that you understand the theory and that you master the practical things after a completed course at Gusty, so that you can stand on your own legs in your future career as a kitesurfer. /Tobbe
PS. The courses are usually held at Habo Ljung, Lomma. Sometimes at other locations in Skåne, it always depends on the winds.
As a student at Gusty, you will get the best possible training you can get when it comes to kitesurfing. Gusty does not want to leave a student who does not feel confident, but rather give him or she some extra time to get most value from your course.
Gusty is a certified instructor and you’ll get tought according to the guidelines at IKO. This means that you as a student step by step will be tought all the fundamental techniques under safe conditions until you become independent.
Me and my son took the level 1-3 course with Gustav! Me as 50+ years and my 20 years old son appreciated Gustav's calm and patience with both of us! Gustav's flexibilty made it easy to complete the course as you have to adapt to wind, spare time, etc.. Thank you Gustav for making us two dedicated kitesurfers!
The kite course fulfilled its promises and gave me a good theoretical and practical foundation to work with. I got knowledge about security, spotcheck, the wind window and how to learn board starts. The instructor had the patience of an angel and encouraged with the difficult parts. Truly recommended to everyone who is thinking of starting kitesurfing.
Gustav's patience is what makes you feel confident with the kite as you're in the water. Small groups are definitely a big plus as well as the possibility to adjust the sessions after your own desires.
During all the course Gustav was extremely friendly, explained everything really in great detail and took a lot of time to make sure I learn every bit in a way that I feel secure and safe. He really knows what he is talking about and is a really good kite surfer himself and often he showed me the things, which also helped me a lot. Overall, for me as a complete new beginner he provided the best start to my kite experience that I could have hoped for.
