Kiteboarding is a very technical activity and requires proper training and instruction. Please understand that it takes time to master the flying of the kite before it can be combined with a board. The sport is comparable to scuba diving or sky diving and Instructions/Lessons should be obtained through Certified Professionals. Everyone learns at different rates, so the number of lessons required to become self-sufficient varies greatly per person.
The Kite Experience Lesson is a great way to learn about flying kites. This lesson is about 1 hour long. The Kite Experience is great for families and/or younger children. Students will fly small to medium sized trainer kites to learn the general flying skills involved with power kites. If you are seriously considering entering the sport of kiteboarding, you may want to consider the Intro Course.
Kiteboarders start here. The Intro Course ranges between 2-3 hours. In this lesson, you learn all the safety, terminology and setup involved with kiteboarding. You will learn the basics of kite flying with a full size inflatable kite. This lesson is the foundation for a successful progression within the sport.
Students who have already taken the Intro Course or have prior experience are offered Water Lessons with watercraft support. Learn at your pace. We teach in the flat shallow water of Banana River Lagoon. Take your first ride on the board, learn to go upwind or work on jumps! Here you can work on any aspect of your riding.
Need someone to keep an eye on you? Looking to rent (hire) equipment? First time in the ocean? With Supervision, we will take you back upwind if you get stuck. Or we will loan you equipment while we work with other lessons. We can take you on that first ocean downwinder or show you the area. This is for experienced kiteboarders only who can already ride comfortably in both directions and stay upwind.
