Every single day the IKO community grows internationally. With growth and time comes the need to modernize. A big focus these last months have been on optimization, creating user friendly ecourses, enabling online bookings for training courses and launching our very first app; yes you read that right!
New Bite Size Ecourses
In previous communications we have received great feedback about our new bite size ecourses. These new ecourses are compressed and divided up into specific skills that you can learn about quickly and easily online. This ecourses are important for kiters of all levels as they revolve around understanding your kitesurfing equipment. We have released valuable information and techniques on how to trim your kite bar, understanding your control bar system, different line lengths and various terminologies all kiteboarders need to know. What's great about these new ecourses is that the information is short and easy to grasp, you receive training hours from them and it is free for all IKO members!
We have optimized the online booking process for IKO Trainings. You can now reserve your spot instantly online by bank transfer, or paypal. Once you book you course, you will receive instant access to its content to begin preparing for the course which gives you a head start on the training. If you have yet to further your kiteboarding education, we highly recommend you do, not only will new opportunities arise internationally from becoming an IKO Certified Instructor, you will also learn a lot and have a great unique experience!
We are pleased to announce that we have launched the IKO app, which we built to aid everyone in the IKO kiteboarding world!. Currently on the app you will be able to login into your IKO account, read IKO’s ebooks, show others your IKO level and get notifications of incoming messages. We are excited to release this first version of the app on Google Play store and Apple Store. We will continue to improve and develop the app as time goes on. If you do encounter any bugs or have any ideas of features that would improve the app, let us know!
