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.
