For those looking for a unique watersport experience, kiteboarding combines surfing, wakeboarding, and gliding in one action-packed experience. North Florida Kiteboarding's lessons begin on the beach, where instructors will work through a dry-run of paddling, standing, falling, and maneuvering to equip patrons for the steady sloshing of waves. Patrons also practice essential skills, cresting waves with the help of a kite’s gentle tug or the daily tides. Instructors critique form during in-water sessions, sharing tips on how to handle the waves’ unexpected changes and how to properly relaunch after falling. Lessons include complimentary refreshments and sunscreen, ensuring patrons safely enjoy their fun in the sun without wearing wetsuits filled with layers of concentrated ozone. In addition to kiteboarding classes and rental services, North Florida Kiteboarding offers surfing lessons, sells landboards and water-wear gear, and coordinates summer surf camps.
