We provide a comprehensive kiteboarding lesson that includes direct-to-water kiteboarding time.
These will be Private lessons (or if you wish to bring a friend we can accommodate that as well) with the goal of getting you acclimated with the basics of safety, setup, and kite handling.
This is part of our “Move at Your Pace” lesson plans. There is no set limit to what you will learn in the 3-day clinic, we will move at your speed and focus on safety and familiarity with the equipment and kite control. We aim for approximately 2-2.5 hours of instruction each day for a total of 7.5 hrs Our teaching methods will have you up and riding before you know it
Where? Banana River Lagoon. This shallow, waist-high body of water is perfect for learning. It takes all of the pressure off. You don’t need to worry about deep water, obstacles, or even boat traffic. This is Nature's perfect classroom.
What is included? Everything! You bring a bathing suit and a smile and we will take care of the rest! (Of course, we have student discounts if you are ready for your own set of basic gear; Harness, water shoes, etc) We use Yamaha watercraft for safety and support along with two-way helmet communication. This allows us to be by your side and in your ear at all times.
