Kitesurfing is an activity whose practice takes place both on land and in water and which calls on mental and physical abilities. As a result, several prerequisites are required to book a service:

ー Know how to swim at least 50 meters (the certificate is compulsory for minors).
ー Weigh at least 40kg (necessary for the triggering of safety systems for kitesurfing activity)
ー Present a certificate of no contraindication to the practice of kitesurfing valid (less than 3 months) for people over 60 years old.
ー Present parental authorization for minors.

During the session, the student agrees to respect the instructions and practice areas given by the instructor, for his safety and that of others. Failure to comply with the instructions may lead the instructor to exclude a student from the course, without refund.​


The prices indicated in our price list include, in addition to the
teaching / supervision service as such:  

- The provision of equipment (wing, bar, board)

- Personal protective equipment (suit, harness / vest / helmet / radio)

- Liability insurance

For courses (from 3 sessions) a deposit worth one session (120/140€) is required.

For installment payments, the methods of payment accepted are: bank transfer, check.

For other payments, the methods of payment accepted are: cash, check, instant transfer, credit card.



Participation in the kitesurfing activity implies an obligation for the practitioner to have Civil Liability covering the practice.

Participants in our courses must make all necessary arrangements for personal insurance. Kitesurfing is a so-called "specific environment" activity very often excluded from classic insurance contracts as long as they are not formally included in writing by the insurers.

The RC (Civil Liability) is mandatory for the practice of kitesurfing. It is intended to cover the risks that you may cause others to incur following an involuntary maneuver that would cause damage to third parties.

The provision of a certificate of civil liability insurance explicitly mentioning "the practice of kitesurfing in school" is therefore required when booking within our school.

If your home insurer is unable to issue you such a certificate, we recommend that you take out specific insurance with AFKite (Association Française de Kite).

This subscription must be effective before the start of the lessons. It can be made online on the AF Kite website (Aviation Insurance and Sports Risks|FRANCE|AIR COURTAGE ASSURANCES) using school code 33001.

Several types of insurance will be offered to you, for prices between 8€ (day) and 35€ (practice in school and free for 12 months).


In the event of breakage or loss of equipment due to non-compliance with the instructor's instructions and reminders, a financial contribution will be requested from the author of the repairs or replacement of the latter.


Due to the customer
Cancellation request at least 7 days before the course date: the deposit will be fully refunded
Cancellation request less than 7 days before the course date: the deposit will be retained by the school.

Any session or course started is due in full, except in the event of cancellation on our part.

Due to school

The school reserves (until the time of the lesson) the right to cancel or shorten a lesson if it considers that the conditions are not favorable or do not allow the setting up of kitesurfing teaching sessions (wind too weak, too strong, storm, etc.). Depending on the case, a postponement or cancellation will be offered with total or partial refund of the service depending on what has already been done.​
