When do you run your courses?

We run our coursesnowadays by appointment so as to better manage seasonal weather conditions.
Courses typically start at 11am each day but we can start earlier if necessary.


Can I choose a specific date when booking ?

Yes. Please send us an email to check place availability prior to booking.


Where do you run your kite courses?

Mainly in Tempel Hof Field in Berlin. Have a look at our location page where you can get travel directions and a map. These will be sent to you as part of our induction email that you will receive upon booking.


Do I need to be superhumanly fit?

Not at all. Fitness is not a barrier. We can scale your training to suit your requirements. So whether you just want to fly, stand still, jump, skid on the soles of your feet, buggy, landboard, or whatever we can adjust our training to suit your pace or medical background.

You will definitely get a good workout whatever your chosen level. The more you fly, the fitter you will become. That said, if you have any special health requirements or concerns please inform us well in advance of your intended course date.


Will there be any safety gear?

Yes. As part of your course you will be wearing a helmet and crash pads as a minimum. If it is your son or daughter that is attending a course or if you already have protective cycle gear or similar from another sport by all means bring it along to ensure a good fit.

Please note: All of our instructors are trained first aiders and carry a crash pac on the course in the event of an emergency.

All of our kites and equipment is regularly serviced and maintained to keep them at optimum condition. As part of your course we will be showing you what to look for and basic maintenance tips.


What about adverse weather conditions / cancellations?

We purposely have a large selection of kites in differing sizes and as such we can teach in a wide variety of winds. In addition to this we purposely keep in contact with students up until the day of course in case there are any changes that might affect your lesson, i.e. rain, thunder storms and so on. In the event of a postponement we will move your course to the next mutually convenient date or offer you a full refund as per our refund policy.


How else can I pay for a lesson?

All lessons need to be paid for in advance and are done online using a credit card via Paypal through our web site.


Is there anything I should bring?

Warm clothing or layers. Even on a sunny day the wind chill can steal your warmth should the sun dip behind the clouds. Bring also some shatterproof sun glasses as you will be looking up into the sky a lot. Sensible footwear is a must; trainers, walking shoes anything that covers or supports the ankles.

If you have any food intolerances or allergies please bring appropriate light snacks and water. Bring nothing that’s going to bulk you out.


Is there anything I should leave behind?

Anything expensive. You would be amazed how quickly things can get lost or disappear in the grass. It's just simpler if these items are left at home.
