Intro Kiteboarding Lesson
Beginner Kiteboarding Lesson
$225 for one or two people – $110 each for three or more
Not sure where to start? Start with an Intro Lesson. This is your foundation for becoming a kiteboarder. Learning to fly the kite is an essential part of kiteboarding. Don’t be fooled by discounted “Group Ground Courses”. This is a private lesson to make sure (and your friends if you desire) get the attention you need to learn the essentials. $225 is the price for a private Intro Lesson. You are welcome to bring one more person to be included in this price. If you have 3 or more, the price will be $149 each.
This lesson can be done on land or in shallow water (condition dependent). It is very important to learn proper kite skills before adding the element of the board. The majority of this lesson is spent learning relevant kite flying skills with a full-size inflatable kiteboarding kite. All lessons are booked private unless you bring a partner(s). $20 deposit required upon booking.
