KITEBOARDING LESSONS AVAILABLE:

Now Offering Lessons in Spanish!
(Ahora ofrece lecciones en español)

**Kiteboarding is a very technical activity and requires large amounts of training and instruction. You cannot just grab a kite and hop on a board. The people you see kitesurfing might make it look effortless or easy but this is because they have experience and have received proper instruction. The sport is comparable to Scuba Diving or Skydiving. Certifications should be obtained through lessons by trained professionals.  

Just like any hobby, you can benefit greatly by receiving advice from a professional. Whether you're a beginner or you already have some Kiteboarding experience. The lessons below range from introductory, land-based lessons to more advanced water-based classes. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in Kiteboarding to build up a range of skills and techniques in a safe environment.   

Please bring a pair water shoes or "booties" to protect your feet. Please also bring a swimsuit or a wetsuit if the weather is cold. These items are available for sale in the shop if you do not have them already. All other equipment is included.

Cash is always the preferable method but we do accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover or Paypal!

We can provide equipment during this lesson if available. Lessons have first priority on the equipment, boat and instructor.

Jet-Ski Board Skills: This lesson is designed to get you up riding and comfortable on a twin tip Kiteboard and/or Surfboard. 

Riding the board behind a jet-ski takes away all the worries of learning the kite and board skills at the same time. This allows you to practice in open water free from all obstructions with the steady, predictable pull of the ski. Learning to kite is all about marrying your kite skills with your board skills. We find that some students without board sport backgrounds develop their ability with the kite faster than the board. This lesson is designed to save you time, money and frustration by amplifying your board learning time.  

$100 an hour or $65 per person with buddy (limited to two people at time)  

Board Skills Lessons are normally given on the north side of the 520 Causeway across from the famous 520 Slick
