The one day course is for you that wants to try kitesurfing. We cover elements such as flying a trainerkite, rigging an inflatable kite, flying and feeling the power of kite as we’re in the water.
The two days course is for you who wants to learn the basics in order to independently continue on your own. You will ride your first meters by the end of the course.
Problems getting up on the board? Difficulties riding upwind? Wanna learn to jump or nail that backroll? Perhaps are you just feeling a bit rusty? Take it easy, Gusty will help you out!
As a student with Gusty you’ll get the best possible teaching there is to find. To make sure that you get value from your course we’ll never take more than two students per instructor.
Our instructors are all IKO certified. This means that you as a student will be instructed according to the guidelines from IKO to ensure a safe and easy way to learn. During a lesson with Gusty we’ll will step-by-step teach you to master the fundamental techniques under safe conditions so that you’ll soon be able to kitesurf on your own.
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
För Mats började det Sommaren 2017 då han bokade jag upp sig på en kurs i kitesurfing hos Gusty. Utan tidigare erfarenheter av vattensporter tyckte Mats att kitesurfing verkade vara en kul grej och ett roligt sätt att träffa nya människor. Det visade sig vara en riktig fullträff! Så fort Mats fått på sig våtdräkten och gick ut i vattnet, med alla kitesurfare susandes omkring honom, kände han sig hemma. Friska vindar och 18° i luften framstod inte längre som kasst juliväder, utan istället dagar då han kunde fräsa fram över vågorna, flyga genom luften och göra coola hopp och tricks!
För att kunna syssla ännu mer med sporten, och även föra vidare glädjen som den för med sig, gick Mats våren 2021 IKO’s instruktörskurs på Öland. Mats tycker det är lika kul att se andra tjuta av glädje när de kommer upp på brädan som när han själv tog de där första kliven!
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.
