During land training sessions, students set up, launch, fly, and land trainer kites. Instructors teach students basic wind science and the art of flying, as well as how to launch and land their training kites. Likewise, instructors get students up to speed on hand signals for safe communication. On-water sessions adapt the same instruction for aquatic physics by using an inflatable water kite, and also teach students how to body drag, relaunch on the water, and complete self-rescue techniques, before branching into more advanced water maneuvers. Instructors limit class sizes to four students, allowing for ample semi-private instruction.

The lessons include all equipment, excluding wetsuits.

Lessons take place between Gilgo Beach and Plum Beach, and vary depending on the day of week, time of year, and wind direction.

Cosmic Kites Kiteboarding

All instructors at Cosmic Kites Kiteboarding boast certifications from either the International Kiteboarding Organization or Professional Air Sports Association, and instill others with the knowledge they've gained during land- and water-based kiteboarding lessons. During land classes, students launch trainer kites, while water-based lessons allow pupils to skip wakes and mow overgrown seaweed while learning fundamentals. For more advanced or specialized instruction, the staff also teaches participants how to perform special maneuvers, tricks, and jumps on water. Additionally, the staff can introduce clients to a range of complete kitesurfing packages, as well as new or used boards and kites, and boots and wetsuits.

Helming additional locations in North Carolina and the Dominican Republic, Cosmic Kites currently sponsors two Dominican riders in their global quest on the World Kitesurfing Tour. When not supervising adrenaline-soaked adventures, Cosmic Kites maintains existing kiteboarding locations, works to open new ones, supports youth sporting events, and develops new ideas for boarding safety that aren't as costly as installing inflatable beaches.
