Technique and Security
Knowledge is the key to income to achieve a secure goal. The high mountain is an incredible place, but only with awareness can you enjoy it.
To train is to add safety, tranquility and respect in extreme sport. Enjoying it or not will depend on our ability. A safe mountain is an incredible experience.
SNOW + KITE
The sport shares many similarities with kitesurfing on water, especially the handling of the sail, and although the table changes, the way of navigation is similar.
The most marked difference with the mountain has to do with geography, the force of gravity by the difference of slopes and the varied dynamism of the wind. These influence a lot in the walk. Understanding these concepts is essential. The way they merge gives us the pattern of the terrain in which we are going to fly, and above all things, the precautions that we must take into account.
C4 is an initial training, and essential, to be able to be an independent and safe kiter in high mountain. Begin to understand the terrain and its uncertain nature gives us the tools to safely make trips. The climate is changing, and the lands are giant, the exploration of their corners is proportional to the knowledge we have.
