QUESTIONS ABOUT STRAPLESS KITESURFING IN TULUM

Learning Strapless Kitesurfing

1) WHEN AM I READY FOR KITESURFING THE WAVES?

In general, when you can kite with a twin-tip comfortably in both directions. It is best suited to those who can already kitesurf confidently, because in strapless kitesurfing you won’t be attached to the board, being harder to stay on, keep balanced and control the kite at the same time.

If you are a surfer who wants to enjoy more days in the waves, you should start with a regular kite course to learn how to maneuver the kite.


2) HOW LONG IT TAKES TO LEARN WAVE-RIDING?

It depends on your previous kite skills and what your strapless goals are.

An intermediate kiteboarder can learn to ride a strapless surf board with just 1 or 2 lessons.
But if you are looking to master the wave riding or some strapless tricks, more lessons and a lot of practice on your own would be needed.


3) IS TULUM A SURF SPOT?

Tulum is not known as a surf spot. But in windy conditions Tulum beach gets wavy. The kind of waves not good enough for surfing, but great for having fun with your kite. 


4) ARE STRAPLESS KITE LESSONS PRIVATE OR GROUP?

Strapless kite lessons are private (one-to-one), just professional wave rider instructor and you.
