The terra firma Beginner 1 class practices launching and landing with inflatable kites on land, and Beginner 2 students perforate the ocean waters as they learn to launch, maneuver, and position their wind-powered vessel. Epic Boardsports encourages all participants to bring water and sunscreen and Beginner 2 students to come with their own water shoes.
