First day I learned the steering on a little kite, all the theory, the handling and preparation of the material, but when we went into the water, there was again not enough wind.
Second day finally the wind came back! Did a lot of bodydragging, I am very untalented in the water, I am just not a water person I think. But it was fun! Felt some burning here and there on my body from time to time and asked if there are jellyfishes. Yes there are, nothing dangerous, I couldn't see anything on my skin, was told there is no chemical reaction. Ok, no problem, while steering the kite and trying to move upwind and downwind, I anyways was too concentrated to feel anything.
The bad surprise came when I woke up in the middle of the night with my legs itching and burning. Full of red stripes...
Didn't feel like getting more of them, so cancelled the lessons on my last day.
Was a nice try, but I seem to be so unlucky in the water that I probably stick to air in the future. Look very much forward to the paragliding again back in Switzerland!
