In Pollensa Bay, on the location of our school; due to the shape of our bay, we enjoy shallow, mostly, calm waters, with very little chop, and perfect constant breezes, in fact, the ideal learning conditions; and our school it is situated in the area of the Bay, close to Puerto de Pollensa, sheltered from the predominant NE and E winds, better known as "embat" in the local's languaje, which generally blows during the summer months, making the middle of the bay, which is the area in which most of private kiters gather, a rather choppy area.
To this disadvantage, we have to add the fact of being obliged to share the spot with many other riders, which, as consequence of the almost constant onshore wind direction, this, forces all kitesurfers and windsurfers who chose this spot, to navigate in tracks which run parallel to the beach, which often provoque lines crossing and also, we must consider that there, are many inexpert and begginer kiters that are unable to get upwind, reason, which consequently gets them downwinded and therefore, forced to walk back to reach the point in where they started their ride, with their kites over the road, which is next to the spot. Considering that fact, we have always to extreme the precautions and procure to have our riders or upwind from kiter's masification, if out level or riding allowe us that, or downwind from it, and respecting the "preferences of way" which can be found on NOVEDADES

Kitesurfing is a sport that can pose big risks for those who do not follow some strict safety regulations on their learning process. To begin, the first step is to choose a legally registered school, with all permissions, certifications and authorizations, with a water marked channel, signalized on their spot, which monitors are qualified and have their monitor's certification granted by the Spanish Sailing Federation in the category of kitesurfing monitor, only valid qualification in our country.
Book yourself on our school. KITEMALLORCA C.B, guarantee all this requisites, then, follow the course on its sucesive steps and follow it to the end, once completed your course, do not try to anticipate yourself and take unnecessary risks and try to practice alone, by yourself, instead, keep practicing near your instructor or even better, become a member of the Asociation Aprende a Navegar and, this way, receive the support and advice of other advanced kiters and also share your questions and doubts with other begginer students which are on your same level of knowledge and which will have, most probably, your same questions and needs.
The most frequent causes of accidents, arise from people trying to learn by themselves; KITEMALLORCA C.B, it is definitely the best investment, to get the best tuition, since learning is definitely faster and more secure, the worst idea is, as said, to try to teach yourself, or by anyone who offers to teach you without meeting the basic legal requirements, as on the search engines like Google , Bing or Yahoo on Internet, the information that SEO robots gather, in order to position one webpage or another on the first positions of the search engine, comes, regardless of their legal status.
Therefore, unfortunately, to be the first positioned or the most attractive option when it comes to chose your kite school on internet, is not regarding their legal status but of those who have been able to achieve a good positioning and optimization for their webpages, being their offered services, most likely, an illegal activity.
Inform yourself well, before deciding which school will prepare you to be a good kitesurfer. If you chose wrongly, you risk to suffer accidents which, evidenty, no insurance agency will cover for being this schooling activity not registered and not enjoying an assignated, authorized and designed area by the Balearic Coast Authorities for their activities, risking with it your life and possibly other's peoples life, or in the best case, you may damage the equipment. The most important factor of learning kitesurfing, undoubtedly, it's safety.
Stretching is the bridge between a sedentary and an active life.
Thanks to stretching we can keep muscles flexible and prepare them for movement. It is vital in warming up, physical education, training, muscle strengthening, gymnastics, and for any physical activity in general.
On this part of our website you will find different sets of stretches, appropriate for before and after kitesurfing activity.
Your begginers pack after your kite lessons should consist of:
1) Liability Insurance.
2) Anemometer. Imperative to know how strong the wind is and if it's in the range of your kite.
3) Kite. Find out what are the most frequent winds in your area and their intensity, use the kite size according to your weight.
4) Board. If your board it's medium or large size, instead of a small board, this will certainly improve your progress.
5) Harness. Buy the one that makes you feel more comfortable.
6) Vest. The main reason to have a vest is that they give you buoyancy and also protects your ribs.
7) Helmet. It's very important in all cases but specially in zones franked by rocks or in areas of not much depth.
8) Booties. Are recommended if your area is rocky, also to avoid getting hurted on the feet by pebbles, seaweed, spider fish.
9) Neoprene. It helps you to keep your body temperature and also protect you against jellyfish or other abrasions.
Respecting a few priority rules, universally recognized, sometimes ignored, most times by ignorance, and on occasions, because forgetfulness or selfishness, we can prevent accidents, both on the beach and, especially, in the water. Try to remember that rules at all times.
First rule ... The person who goes sailing from the beach have right of way over who is sailing in the direction of sea-beach; the reason of it: the wind is usually more gusty when we are near the shore tan when we are at a certain distance, so that the one that begins his navigation from the beach is more exposed and at that disadvantage with respect to the one that is coming towards the beach and well powered, therefore, he has priority.
Second rule ... The one that receives the wind from his right, that is, his front hand on the bar is the right hand, has priority. When two sailors are in crossing paths, the one receiving the wind from the left, should low the kite for anyone coming in the opposite direction who has the right hand in front, he can continue its course without having to move up or down the kite.
Third rule ... If we are reaching another kiter from behind, we must give priority to who we are overtaking, because since we have a global vision behind but the other kiter has not, the kiter overtaked has priority, so that we must fall downwind of him to overtake him without being affected by our maneuver.
Fourth rule .... The kiter who is upwind of another kiter kite should rise his kite while the downwind kiter must lower it to avoid both that kites meet in the air.
Fifth rule .... The kiter who has been surfing a wave has right of way on which this jumping or coming in the opposite direction, as long as that is not crossing into the water, since on that case applies rule number 1.
Sixth rule ..... The kiter who jumps must have a free area of 50 meters in front of if and 30 meters downwind, without anyone coming after him with lines that could entangle because of his maneuver.
Seventh rule ... Any other boat takes precedence in the water over a kiter, always fall downwind of all.
Eighth rule .... And the last rule and perhaps the most important, if in doubt, and even if you're the one who has the preference, if you do not see clear, always take the necessary step avoids situations. Let's then, common sense, usually the least common of the senses, unfortunately, predominate.
It is advisable to read the eight rules carefully until fully understood and clearly remember at all times. You have to think that when we are in the water, sailing among other riders, one of these situations can suddenly occur and always we have to make useof that rules to avoid further problems.
As a last suggestion, again, be generous, it is always possible to avoid a conflict situation if we react in advance, especially when there are many people in the water, or space is limited (because of the waves that close off) or are novices practicing and do not control well.
Windsurf courses are of 5 hours of duration and the cost is 100 euros, including boards, sails, neoprene, liablity and accidents insurance.
As, during the summer months, the "embat", wind that is caused by the warming of the land, creating an air flow that runs sea/land direction, starts to blow in the moment that the land temperature gets high enough to provoque this effect, it is better to start with the windsurfing lessons at 10 am, because at around noon, the wind direction will often turn onshore, creating a small chop that will difficult to keep our balance, especially on the early stages of the courses
Surf lessons are of 3 hours duration and the cost is 60 euros including board, leash, neoprene and insurances, rentals are also available.
