During the introductory course, a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:4 lets land-bound pupils ask questions and learn the fundamentals of kiteboarding while getting hands-on practice with a foil training kite and then a Leading Edge Inflatable kite. The courses, which rotate among locations and are subject to weather conditions, are scheduled by appointment and take place Monday–Saturday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Islander Kiteboarding

International Kiteboarding Organization– and Professional Air Sports Association–certified instructor, Christian Cooper and his partner preside over Islander Kiteboarding and share the thrill of skimming the waves with students during classes that impart both basic skills and advanced techniques for persuading kites to sweep boarders to the nearest sunken pirate ship. The lessons take advantage of the weather and glut of great kiteboarding locations in the Corpus Christi area, which were what drew Christian to the spot in the first place.
