During land training lessons, students set up, launch, fly, and land trainer kites. Instructor Mike teaches students basic wind science and the art of flying, as well as how to launch and land training kites. Likewise, Mike also gets students up to speed on hand signals for safe communication. On-water lessons adapt the same instruction for aquatic physics by using an inflatable water kite. They also teach students how to body drag, relaunch on the water, and complete self-rescue techniques, before branching into more advanced water maneuvers. Class sizes are limited to four students, which allows for ample semiprivate instruction.

Lessons include all equipment, excluding wetsuits. They take place between Gilgo Beach and Plumb 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.
