Take the stress out of finding the next job. Due to the seasonal nature of water sports, few instructors hold long-term contracts and looking for the next job is always looming on the horizon. However, with the right approach this does not have to be an overwhelming task. Below are 6 ways that will allow you to learn about new career opportunities and secure the next job offer without actively searching for it. Before you start, review and polish your application materials. Make sure they are relevant to the job offers you want to attract and that your resume or CV are up to date. Get some expressive pictures shot of you and have work references ready.

Tom, who has been teaching and coaching for over 10 years or 10,000 hours, has experimented with what worked best for his students. His improved approach to teaching increased the chance that the students “got it” and became hooked, which of course is a win for everyone. Most of all the student, whose life has just become 100% more amazing, but also for all the schools, the dealers and the whole industry.

What is life like as a kitesurf instructor? Is it really a dream job, spending the whole day on the beach, working in exotic locations? While all that is true, it is also a job that needs to be taken very seriously. Safety will be your number one concern. You will be in charge of your students and responsible for their health and safety, and spend your day working with many different kinds of people. You need to be able to get along and communicate well with them, even with difficult and demanding customers. You will also have to communicate within your kitesurfing school, and coordinate with the other instructors and the management.

Before setting out to get certified as an instructor, you might want to know how much money you will make. There are multiple factors that will affect your income. The biggest will be to find a school that has plenty of students, and is at a location with reliable weather and wind. Both of these are required to ensure that you can teach a reasonable number of hours every day. Some schools might offer a fixed salary, but if they don’t have sufficient bookings or the weather does not allow for lessons every day, the salary will reflect this.
