How Much Wind Do I Need?

The first lesson is all about kite control and a lot of safety. So, you can happily learn what you need to know in a lighter wind. However, there is a lot more action in the second and third lessons, so You will need a decent breeze. We always teach in the right conditions. Your progress is the most important thing for us.
