We focus safety and effective learning curve in small groups and never forget to pay attention to have some fun as well.
Our instructors will focus and give 100% attention just for you to help you learning.
All our instructors are IKO certified and they go through our kiteschool’s very special personal coaching program for making sure the customer experience during the kite course is the most convienent and worth of price for all our students.
Small Group teaching
We have always max 2 students per instructor, so it’s almost private with price of normal.
Less people on course means more teaching and effective training. There is a big difference between 2 or 4 students per instructor.
We have unique, non-crowded privat beach in use just for our Kite School students & Standup paddlers.
Spot is perfect for training and teaching – nice shallow water let you stand on the sandy bottom but it is always deep enough for safe training.
We have really good probability for windy days in Hvide Sande.
We teach only if there is enough wind, otherwise we will find another day for your lessons. If another day is not fitting for you, you will get your money back or you can choose to have some SUP fun instead, if you like.
Learning kiteboarding with our professional instructors is not extreme sport – sorry if you were waiting for that. It’s safe and fun.
Safe training works big role at our kite school, but of course our instructors have valid first aid license and our safety boat is ready for action as well – just in case.

OUR TEAM & STORY
We are eager to make your day good!
People behind Kite One
Outdoor-sports has always been attracting Timo and Martta. When they signed into kitesurflessons in 2005, they didn’t know where it will lead them.
Kitesurfing in summertimes and snowkiting in wintertimes was fun from the beginning and is still entertaining them fully in 2016!
This is the story behind KITEONE Kitesurf School and its founders Timo & Martta.
First visit in Hvide Sande
Timo and Martta travelled around different kitesurfing holiday destinations in Europe and as a part of their road trips, they visited in Hvide Sande very first time 8 years ago, in 2008. It was love with first sight. They came back to Hvide Sande again next summer. And next. And next. And next before moving here.
Hvide Sande has it all you need for a good kitesurfing holiday!
First kiteschool is founded to Finland
After five years of experience of snowkiting and kitesurfing, Timo and Martta noticed they were really enjoying guiding people to the sport and wanted to deliver their passion for others as instructors. VIIMA Kiteschool was founded in Helsinki, Finland in 2010.
VIIMA Kiteboarding wasn’t just a kiteschool – it was a brand with mission to be a role model for all to learn and enjoy kitesurfing safely and passion to develop the sport and community by organizing different kind of happenings and blogposting monthly about the life around the sport to Finnish biggest outdoor-forum.
Here are some videos of the happenings organized by VIIMA 2010-2015:

Become internationally certificated kitesurfing instructors both in snow and water (IKO)
Right from the beginning Timo & Martta saw it very important to develop themselves as instructors for making sure their kitesurfcourses are worth of time and money for all their kiteschool’s customers.
They travelled to Norway in January 2011 to learn teaching pedagogy and became certified instructors in snow by IKO, which is world’s leading educational institute for kitesurf instructors.
They came back home from Norway more motivated than ever before.
Next summer they got deeper in teaching by choosing to go through IKO’s kitesurfing instructor course in water which was organized in Denmark (Hvide Sande!)
After learning teaching pedagogy, they have noticed that there is so big difference to teach sport as an educated instructor. It’s more motivating and enables to offer students teaching with quality and fun in the same package.
Opens kiteschool & surfer’s Bed &Breakfast in Hvide Sande
Timo and Martta were so in love with Hvide Sande after spending there so many summers so they decided to buy a house there so that they could spend more and more time there in the near future.
They could’t hide their love to Hvide Sande and started to market the destination for Finnish people and surfers as a dream place to learn and enjoy kitesurfing. It was a natural way to open a second base for their Finnish kite school to Hvide Sande and start to run Bed & Breakfast for Finnish kitesurfers on summertimes. Nowadays Bed & Breakfast is called Sea Lover’s Place and is open for everyone.
On wintertimes they kept running their snowkiteschool in Finland.
Kiteschool extends to Lapland
After three successful winterseason in Helsinki, Timo&Martta set up new base for their snowkite school to Ylläs, Lapland, Finland. Ylläs is snowfunparadise like Hvide Sande is waterfunparadise.
Two different destinations meant need for more instructors. In the beginning of new winter season, there were finally six instructors ready to work for VIIMA Kiteschool.
First year in Lapland was a success and business kept running and growing there next years.
New school, Kiteone, is founded to Hvide Sande
Hvide Sande has been attracting Timo & Martta more and more last 8 years.
They sold VIIMA Kiteboarding, brand they had created, to new owner in autumn 2015 to enable themselves to concentrate fully for living in Denmark and new business – Kiteone Kitesurfing School – in Hvide Sande.
