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.
Aerial Kiteboarding's certified instructors teach students how to properly ride kites and kiteboards across glassy water surfaces. They impart water-kiting techniques in both private and group lessons, helping beginners and more advanced students alike. After teaching beginning lessons in introductory classes, the instructors move onto more advanced moves such as steering, flight control, riding skills, and launching and landing methods. They supply all rentals and equipment for the classes and lessons, which run seven days a week depending on the weather and the amount of reindeer air traffic. Aside from their flagship kiteboarding packages, the outdoorsy folks also offer other services such as kayak rentals, SUP tours, and wakeboarding.
