Learn to be a Kitesurfing Instructor

Working in the watersports industry can be a rewarding experience. Whether you are looking for something to do in your Gap Year, a break from the rat race or an interesting and challenging career, teaching watersports provides this. Of all the sports out there kitesurfing is one of the most rewarding both to participate in and to teach. Add to this the ability to teach wakeboarding and waterskiing and you will have a highly appealing set of skills to offer to potential employers.

At X-Isle we have designed a 9 week programme to take you from zero ability to instructor level. You will leave the course with a set of qualifications which will enable you to find work at kitesurfing centres all over the world. The course is run at our UK training centre and also in Mombasa, Kenya, our tropical kitesurfing location.


What you will get:

British Kitesurfing Association Level 3
British Kitesurfing Association Kitesurfing Instructor
Royal Yachting Association Powerboat Level 2
Royal Yachting Association First Aid
GMDSS / DSC Short Range Radio
British Waterski Federation Waterski Instructor
British Waterski Federation Wakeboard Instructor
Ski Boat Driver Award

Who can join?
There are no pre-course requirements and you will not be expected to have any experience in watersports or teaching.

What next?
Simply call us on 01983 873111, visit http://x-is.co.uk/kenya-gap-year.asp or e-mail us on info@xisle.co.uk and we can discuss your next steps. We run programmes throughout the year.

All the best,

I was thinking of heading down to Kenya for a bit of kitesurfing, looks real nice.

Then I started to read up on Malaria, and that scared me, and I don't want to take those malaria shots, I've read they really mess up your kidneys or liver.

So I'm interested, what's your take on the Malaria in Kenya? is my fear overblown? or is there no malaria there?

I want to catch wind, not malaria

Thanks
