Aqua Sports Maui Kiteboarding Instructor Karen Lang teaching at Kite Beach Maui

 

This basic kiteboarding course covers:

  • Kite Safety
  • Self Rescue
  • Kite theory
  • Kite flying skills
  • Becoming comfortable with the Kite
  • Harness techniques
  • Kite launching
  • Kite landing
  • Body Dragging, (Water Practice with Kite)
  • Body Drags with Board
  • Water Starts with board  may be possible at this time, (depending on the individual)

We start by getting to know a little about you and finding out about any previous experience you may have, then you will learn the basics in kite flying such as site selection, wind direction, and safety procedures for both land and water. We will fly a small trainer kite or a small inflatable kite depending on the conditions. You will get plenty of  hands on  kite flying experience helping you to develop essential core kite flying skills.

Then in the water! We believe in getting in the water as soon as possible. With your instructor’s guidance you will practice body dragging, kite control in the water, self rescue technique, launching and landing your kite. Your instructor will be right there with you until you are ready to go solo.

After developing core kite skills, you and your instructor will decide if you are ready for the board. Everyone is different, so there’s no way to predict how well you will accomplish the skills needed with the kite before we add the board, but for your safety, we believe you should have pretty good control of that kite before we introduce the board. By the end of this class, most people are  ready to move on to the next step: getting up on the board and getting their first ride.
