The famous body drag, which consists of sliding through the water without a board in order to begin to control the momentum necessary to then sail with the board.

We answer your questions

equipo ozu
Can I learn to kitesurf alone?

NO

For those who do not follow or know the safety regulations, kitesurfing can be a very dangerous sport.

Kitesurfing courses are necessary to know well the theoretical bases of how the kite works, the safety measures, and the rules of preference in the water. The worst causes of accidents arise from people trying to learn alone or with the help of an inexperienced person. In addition to being dangerous, it may take a while to evolve to the level of what an instructor can do in a relatively short period.

What security measures does the school have?

The most important thing to take into account is the experience and qualifications of the instructors.

Our kitesurfing school renews its material every year and is state-of-the-art, and the rescue boats are attentive to our students who are marked with bright lycra.

In addition, we have civil liability and accident insurance.

What do I have to bring to the course?

It is advisable for the student to bring a swimsuit, sunscreen, water and sunglasses.

We will provide you with the rest: kite, board, neoprene, vest, harness and helmet.

What happens if I cannot take my course due to weather conditions?

If the wind is not suitable for the course, we will refund the money equivalent to the hours remaining to be taken without any problems.

It is not usually common but if it happens you can rest assured that the money will be returned

How can I reserve a course?

At Ozu School we put several options on the table:

  • Through the web forms.
  • Calling us directly on our cell phone and talking to us.
  • via WhatsApp
  • In the Ozu Tarifa physical store
How long does it take to learn Kitesurf?

The average duration to understand and master the handling of the kite until you can sail in both directions safely (waterstart) ranges between 9 and 15 hours.

This period is subject to your skill and the favorable weather conditions for kiting. It is not directly linked to the person’s physical condition, but rather to coordination and mental disposition.

Do I need previous experience to rent equipment?

Yeah! We ask for experience in wind sports for the beginner rental and, in addition to that, experience in foils for renting the complete Wing + Foil package. If you don’t meet that, go through our courses! You will make your life much easier!

Does the school have an assistance boat or any means of rescue?

Yeah. All official kitesurfing schools in Tarifa have a rescue boat service to assist our students at all times: loss of board, difficulty returning to shore, any damage caused to the equipment.

These companies only provide service in authorized areas (exclusive teaching areas for official schools)

What requirements must a kitesurf school meet?

It must be approved by the Spanish sailing federation (Andalusian sailing federation), registered with social security, it must also have accident and civil liability insurance and be registered as an active tourism company.

Tariff kitesurf schools are required to have a contract with the rescue company and license from Tariff town hall.
