Flying a kite with powerkites is less easy than it sounds. The double lines ensure that powerkiting becomes a spectacular beach activity, for young and old!
We use the official NASA Wings for powerkiting. These kites are designed by NASA, as are the parachutes with which the space shuttles are slowed down. This means that the powerkite can deliver a lot of (counter) force. It is not without reason that this activity is the ultimate opportunity to experience the power of the wind.
Powerkiting in Wijk aan Zee
Before the clinic powerkiting on the beach of Wijk aan Zee starts, an explanation is given by one of our instructors. This not only explains the operation of the kite, but attention is also paid to all security measures. Then you will work with another participant. Once you have mastered the basic technique, you can start looking for the ‘power zone’. This is the area in which the powerkite catches the most wind, and therefore delivers the most power. It may even happen that you are pulled over the beach a bit. Powerkiting is therefore not allowed everywhere in The Netherlands. Wijk aan Zee is one of the special kite zones that have been selected along the Dutch coast.
Powerkiting | Packages
As standard, powerkiting is combined with a blokart clinic in our Blokart Race Edition. Since you experience the power of the wind while kiting and the speed of it while kiting, these activities together form the ultimate beach experience.
If a competitive element is preferred, it is nice to combine kiting with one or more team sports. For example, the more relaxed and quiet beach golf is a perfect activity to undertake after the challenging powerkiting. Prefer another sporty activity? Then opt for an hour of lacrosse, or take a look at our overview of activities!
