Whole Season Kite & SUP Instructor (March - October 2019)

Kiteschool Portugal - West Algarve, Portugal

You love to kite and or SUP? West Algarve has perfect conditions to teach and develop yourself further. 

Close to our lodge is the Alvor lagoon. The lagoon has flat and shallow water which makes teaching easy. Furthermore, its perfect to practice jumps and freestyling yourself. Next to the lagoon is a long beach "Meia praia" where kiting is allowed and you can do some wave kiting whenever there is south swell. Apart from the lagoon the gear is high quality as well as we work with the latest gear from DUOTONE. We do like you to be self reliant and treat the material as if it was your own. 

We have multiple sup tours going on every day during high season. Our tours go from the beautiful cliffs and caves in Lagos to the peaceful Baragem lake and some exciting north west Algarvian rivers. If you like SUP or you're interested in working extra hours besides teaching kite, we have amazing sights and places to take our guests out for tours
