  • WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK: English, Spanish, Russian, Japanese and Canadian 😉
  • WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING? Swim suit and or boardshorts, towel, sunscreen, sunglasses and water is recommended. Girls , wear boardshorts or yoga shorts. We use seat harnesses and they have straps that go around the tops of your legs so a little padding is advised.
  • CAN I LEARN TO KITEBOARD IN ONE LESSON? 
    • It is possible, but not likely.
    • Kiteboarding is like a cross between paragliding and wake or snowboarding. One thing that is important to understand is that you will not learn to kiteboard in one day.
    • Not to say that you can’t take a 1 day lesson  if you just want to see what it is all about and you will have plenty of fun doing it. But..
    • First, there is a good amount to learn about safety. We feel that is very important to teach you right from the beginning how to take care of yourself.
    • Next, learning kite control differs greatly from one person to another. Just because you excel in other sports doesn’t mean you will be the first to get kite control. I have seen 45 year old moms get it before 30 year old men. OK, usually it’s the other way around, but you will just have to take the challenge and see.
    • It’s not hard, just different.
  • WHERE IS YOUR STORE? Aqua Sports Maui does not have a store, we work with several shops in town. Students enjoy discounts at more than 1 shop!
  • WHAT ABOUT AFTER THE LESSONS? We are here for you after the lessons to answer any kiteboarding questions, help you with gear purchase, etc. Just call us at 808 242 8015 or email us at aquasportskite@gmail.com
