What to Expect


Our women only kitesurfing holiday is developed for complete beginners. The Algarve has good conditions from in October for learning to kitesurf and with a shallow sandy lagoon right on our doorstep, it's the perfect location for beginners getting to grips with the sport. 

The week includes 15 hours of lessons spread over 5 days, the course is developed to get you up and riding confidently no matter what way the wind blows. With a low student to instructor ratio, you’ll get maximum coaching and water time throughout the week. 

If conditions aren't in our favour, we will swap kitesurfing lessons for surfing, SUP, rock climbing, mountain biking or wakeboarding :) We'll have an epic week no matter what! 

Whilst kitesurfing looks tricky, it’s actually has a speedy learning curve and doesn’t require a huge amount of upper body strength. Plus if you’ve got board skills from surfing, wakeboarding or snowboarding you’re already halfway there! 

We’ll be heading to the pretty fishing village of Burgau in the Algarve, staying in a lovely modern apartment just for us with a pool, it's just a short walk to the beach and village. 

On our rest day during the week, we’ll have a stand up paddleboard lesson and tour through the caves and grottos of the stunning south coastline of Portugal. 

We’ve also teamed up with fantastic yoga instructor, who will be offering daily yoga sessions in our tranquil yoga garden to help you stretch out your muscles and unwind. 

As with all Gutsy Girl trips, this is an exclusive package open only to women, so you’ll be learning is a super friendly and encouraging women-only environment that we do so well! :) 



We are super excited to be working with the very best kitesurfing providers in the Algarve, with passionate instructors who love introducing people to the sport. The course is developed to get the most out of your week in the sun, starting by learning to fly the kite and progressing on to the water and learning to ride along independently in all directions.
