follow the sun, wind, and waves with KiteActive

The entire trip will be a big surprise, as we will make a daily plan depending on where the best possible conditions to kite are! A few days before the trip, our team of weather experts will check where in Europe the wind will be the best. Is it Denmark? Is it France? Maybe we drive to Spain? Or should we hit one of the beautiful lakes in Italy?

The first decision we are going to make when we start is: Are we going North, East, West or South?

Check out the North route
Check out the South route
Check out the East route

These routes are more or less an indication of kite spots and what to expect. Our travel and weather guides will create the perfect plan day by day to make sure you hit the spot at the right time!


variety of unique kitespots

We will choose the best kite spots according to the levels of the group and the forecast. You will see a big variety of different kite spots, or maybe we will stay at one spot all week because the wind is good there.

From flat water lagoons to beautiful mountain lakes or just a rough session on the North Sea, there are so many options! Of course, during the trip, there is always room for input, and we will work out the perfect plan together with you.



Wait, why should you go on a vanlife trip with KiteActive?

  • Planned routes by experts: Kiteactive takes you to the best kitesurfing spots in Europe, ensuring optimal conditions for all kitesurf levels.
  • Fully equipped campers: Travel in comfort and style with our campers, designed to meet all your needs for a hassle-free adventure.

That’s why our trips are perfect! You are at a perfect destination with ideal conditions for a week with people who also want to learn as much as possible. Hey ho, let’s go! 🙂

Designed for beginners

This Level 1 – Beginner package is the ideal start to your kitesurfing career. We will help you get started and ensure that you can get on the water independently as a real kiter under good conditions, safely, and with great pleasure. A complete kite training in 1 week from Zero to Hero!


9 hours of lessons from our team. After the 9 hours you can practice independently with other kiters from your level for the rest of the week with our kite material. A complete package including kite lessons, (shared) equipment rental, supervision, and coaching for 6 days!

What to expect from this course?

After this week you can go on the water independently with your kite set. To ensure that you make optimal progress, we teach with 1 instructor on a maximum of 2 students. You share a kite set together for the entire week so that you can help each other and learn together. Kitesurfing can be quite intensive, especially in the beginning. It is nice to be on the water together. You will get lessons from our certified instructors! Real kite professionals who have been active in kite industry for over 10 years!


What do you learn

In 9 hours with 2 beginners / 1 instructor / 1 kiteset

Building up your kite and knowledge about kitematerials
Learn how to rig the kite, learn all about your material, bar extensions, line lengths, different systems, kite types, etc.
Safe starting and landing
Perhaps the most important thing during your course. Learn to take off/land independently and safely on the beach.
Safety systems, self rescue
Various safety systems are explained, emergency situations are discussed and a step-by-step plan is drawn up so that you can save yourself and get to safety at any time.
Theory & rules
What about priority rules? What about the weather? With what wind force do you use which size kite? What should you take into account? Enough to discuss during our joint theory
Kite control
You cannot practice this enough, 80% of kitesurfing is kite control and a lot of attention is paid to this during the course
Upwind bodydragging / board rescue
What happens if you lose your board? Then you can safely reach your board or the shore by upwind body dragging. It is also good training to be able to fly your kite with one hand.
Spot analysis
Every kite spot is different, every forecast is different. We teach you what to pay attention to if you want to go kiting yourself.
Kite relaunch
It is easy to relaunch your kite in strong winds, but can you also manage with less wind?
If everything else goes well, we have finally arrived at the water start! We're trying to get you on the board.
Independend practise
Towards the end of the course, a lot of attention is paid to independence. We sometimes let you practice yourself (together with the other student) so that you can help each other and practice independently.
Turns & Upwind kiting
Is everything going well? Of course, we will occasionally visit you after the course and provide supervision. We also give you tips and tricks when we see that you have arrived at a bend or altitude walk!


What happens after the 9 hour course?
You will practice as much as possible independently, together with another kiter. The wind often blows all day at our destinations, so there is plenty of time for everyone to spend hours on the water. Our team will supervise you during your practise and give you tips where needed.
What happens if I have or want private lessons?
If it happens that the grouplesson doesn't suit you in terms of your level, you may receive private lessons. If you take private lessons, you will complete the course a little faster, but it is also a little more intensive. Our rule is that 7 hours of private lessons are equal to the nominal 9 hours of shared lessons.
Do you really want private lessons? Please let us know in advance so that we can see what is possible.
What happens if I learn it much faster than the other participant?
We may then reassign you to someone of the same level. Depending on the group, we can also decide that you get your own kite. This may incur additional costs.
Am I Insured?
Do you listen to your instructor's instructions during our kite lesson? And does a kite break during the lesson? Then you are insured against this. Are you not listening to our instructor? For example, the instructor tells you to stay in a certain area and you keep moving on because you (quite understandably) like it so much? Then you are not insured if you break a kite. We recommend that you check your travel insurance carefully to see whether it also covers extreme sports. to avoid disappointment and hassle on holiday. We work together with Sportzeker and then you are always covered for everything!

What happens if my level doen't match with this course
One person picks it up faster than the other and that is really no problem at all. If we see that you need extra lessons after the 9 hours, our instructor will take you aside and discuss with you how many hours he thinks you still need. Depending on whether other people in the group need extra lessons, the extra costs are: €60/hour for private lessons and €35/hour for shared lessons. You can also decide to exchange your rental for the rest of the week for 3 hours of extra lessons so that it does not cost you anything extra that week.

In May 2024 we participated in Sailing & Kitesurfing on the Wadden Sea. Had booked alone and was certainly not the only one. What a nice diverse group of people. The organization immediately makes you feel welcome, has everything in order and knows how to throw a party.In the end we kited less than we had hoped due to wind strength and direction. But the atmosphere on the boat, the Wadden Islands and sailing across the Wadden Sea made it a great weekend!

Last weekend I went to the Wadden with Kite Active for the Sail & Kite trip. It was a wonderful weekend away. Skipper Roel welcomed us warmly on his boat and the vibe was very relaxed. We followed the wind all weekend to be able to kite. The guidance was great, the atmosphere was good, the food was delicious and the other kiters were very pleasant. Highly recommended!

We went on a trip with KiteActive. It was fun. The boat left Franeker on Friday, but we were allowed to come and spend the night on Thursday. We went to Vlieland but there was no wind there. Luckily we had a ball and we could play volleyball. We also swam. Later there was some wind, but not enough. Then we went back to the boat for dinner, which was very tasty. And then in the evening we had a beer. Some took two or even three. At night the water gave light, it is called Zeevonk and was very beautiful. And then we went to sleep. The skipper had secretly sailed away. In the morning we came on deck and were near Terschelling, that was crazy. There was more wind, which was great, but it came from the wrong side. Fortunately, Felix knows a bus gentleman and the van arrived quickly. We went kite surfing on the northern beach. That was really difficult in the waves. Some could do better. Afterwards everyone was tired and we took a siesta. After dinner (yummy again) everyone was suddenly a pirate: it was a pirate party. There was also a smoke machine and DJ Thomas played poffertjes and crackers music. Then we went to the pub in pirate costumes. The other people thought that was strange, but we no longer did. On Sunday we sailed quietly back to Franeker. We went sailing, which was quiet because the engine was off. There were also two seals on board. One is called Ellie and the other is Skip. We also got pancakes in the afternoon. When we moored there was a heavy thunderstorm and everyone was wet. That wasn't a problem because everyone had a good time. I want to come again next time.

I joined KiteActive on the TV TAS 2022 downwinder. For me it was a long lasting dream to kite along the wadden islands and the trip really was a mindblowing experience. Now a week later, I still feel stoked!KiteActive managed to organise the trip in a safe way by having a large team of pro-kiters on the water who were able to perform rescues in case of any emergency, a RIB with an experienced crew who looked after us during the crossings and safeTRX watches which could be used to alert the coast guard.The downwinder lasted only 2 days, but it felt like a complete holiday. Kiting in between groups of hunderds of seals, while having a full rainbow on the background in the direction we were sailing, just sketching one of the pictures in my mind which will never fade away. Flat water spots, nice waves to play in, 4m swell during crossings, a nice combination of all sort of conditions. A trip of a lifetime.A big thanks for the KiteActive team, looking forward to the 2023 edition!

In 21 years of kiting this was by far my best Kite Experience ever. Riding out the TVTAS-downwinder was a huge challenge which I was Able to complete thanks to the Kiteactive team. Always making sure of our safety in very challenging conditions. 4m High Waves and very Strong currents were but of a few conditionaliteit to mention. But Above all their carefull planning and Knowledge of the North Sea and currents made for a safe yet exhilarating kiteadventure. A true challenge for kiteboard-experts only.Thanx Kiteactive-team. I had an awesome time.

Last weekend I did with Kite active the most ultimate downwinder of the Netherlands, which is TV TAS. With this downwinder you pass by all 5 wadden Islands, which are Texel, Vlieland Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermoniksoog. The downwinder was actually even longer, because we started from the mainland of the Netherlands, at Den Helder instead from Texel. Even though it's a 2 days kitesurf trip, it's been the best kitesurf trip for me so far. The thrill of passing all the wadden islands which is world heritage UNESCO, is a undescribable experience. The trip itself was very good organised bij the people from Kite active. They are very experienced kitesurfers, and they know the area very well. They are very friendly, give good briefings, and this not only at the start, but also at several other locations where necessary. Alse the hotel on Terschelling was very nice. The boat trip back, and the bus back to Den Helder was perfect organised.Be aware to be an experienced kitesurfer. Don't under estimate it, it's great if you're an advanced kitesurfer with enough experience to kite in big waves on sea. Despite the advanced level of all kiters in the group, we had to wear a Safetrx whatch for our safety. Which really made this trip possible and safe.
