IKO-certified instructors take students to the mouth of the Squamish River for kiteboarding and riding instruction. Using a four-line power kite and line, students will learn the basics such wind awareness, safety systems, and quick-release. With assisted launching and landing, students will also learn the ropes of steering and controlling their kite, sometimes with one hand, and how to properly manage their vessel's power. See the FAQ page for more details. Both options provide Groupon holders with an instructional video emailed to them before their in-person course to help prepare for the experience.
Though Aerial Kiteboarding sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Aerial Kiteboarding's certified instructors teach students how to properly ride kites and kiteboards across snow-blanketed prairies, glassy water surfaces, and expanses of dirt or grass. During snow-kiteboarding classes, instructors use two-line trainer kites to escort students through wind-safety strategies, basic steering and kite control, and snowman avoidance. Students prowl across the ground and through the air in power-kiting lessons and skim the waves in water-kiting lessons. Building on the lessons imparted during basic and intro classes, two- or three-hour lessons guide more experienced kiteboarders through steering, flight control, riding skills, and launching and landing methods. Aerial Kiteboarding supplies all rentals and equipment for its classes and lessons, which run seven days a week depending on weather and the amount of reindeer air traffic. Aside from their flagship kiteboarding packages, the outdoorsy company also features other services such as kayak rentals, SUP tours, and wakeboarding.
