We start by getting to know a little about you and finding out about any previous kiteboarding 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 the kite before we introduce the board. By the end of this kiteboarding class, most people are ready to move on to the next step: getting up on the board and getting their first ride.
