Take advantage of the Danish coast for kite

The Danish nature has a lot to offer, and there has previously been a misconception that you should go abroad to surf, but if there is something special that Kitekollektivet hopes the Danes have taken with them from the time with Covid-19, is the fact that the Danish nature has a lot to offer – and here wind and water make the Danish coasts ideal for kitesurfing.

Statistics show that due to the bizarre time with Covid-19 the Danes have used the Danish nature much more compared to the times before, and perhaps they have even rediscovered the love for the Danish forests, beaches and other wonders that the Danish nature has to offer.

Kitesurfing courses

Kitekollektivet offers private, group-, and team courses, so you can choose your preferred settings when getting on board and starting your experience with the adrenaline-filled sport in a safe environment. The ambition is to follow and help you all the way – from your first time on the water, to buying your own equipment and until you become a skilled and independent kitesurfer. 

So, think about if you would prefer a 1:1 training, bring a friend or go to a kitesurf course a bigger group – whether it is a team building day for the department, the sports teams or a bunch of good friends, who want to try something new. Common to all courses is the ambition that everyone has a skilled starting point of stand even after completing the course.
