Glisse & Kite in partnership with the IKO Windmagic center organizes “professional kitesurfing instructors” training for people who already know how to kite and who want to share their passion for this board sport with others.

You will be trained and qualified according to the standards set by IKO, International Kiteboarding Organization. When you graduate you can safely teach this sport and you have the opportunity to travel teaching kiteboarding in different amazing places around the world.


To be certified as an IKO Level 1 instructor you must first do an internship as an Assistant Instructor (ATC), a 5-day course costs 560 euros. Then you can do the 5-day Instructor Training (ITC) which costs 860 euros.
