Every day, we commit ourselves to bring you practical and theoretical content adapted to each one thanks to all the teaching material developed for all winds: courses in the water if there is enough wind. If the wind is not strong enough, the practice will be done on the beach in light wind with land kites, simulator boat on windless days to master waterstart on both sides, discovery of the foil, and theory with video support. No more questions! We ride every day with AKILA Nautic Gruissan.
