Led by instructors vetted by the International Kiteboarding Organization, Aerial Kiteboarding’s introductory and basic lessons imbue pupils with an understanding of proper handling to ride kites and kiteboards across the snow-blanketed prairie. During the one-hour introductory class, highly qualified instructors escort students through wind-safety strategies, basic steering and kite control, and snowman avoidance. Building on teachings imparted in intro classes, two-hour basics lessons pair teachers with novices for training that runs through quick-release and self-rescue drills and reviews two-line trainer and four-line power foil kite setups. These two-hour hands-on sessions also guide apprentice kiteboarders through steering, flight control, riding skills, and launching and landing methods.
