IKO-certified instructors take students to the mouth of the Squamish River for kiteboarding and riding instruction that begins with 40 minutes on land reviewing board and kite skills, including launching, body-dragging, and other techniques. Then, students acclimate to gliding on the water during one-hour riding lessons to instill proper body positioning, board starts, and power strokes necessary for proper kiteboarding takeoff.

About Aerial Kiteboarding
Aerial Kiteboarding's certified instructors teach students how to properly ride kites and kiteboards across snow-blanketed prairies, glassy water surfaces, and expanses of dirt or grass. During snow-kiteboarding classes, instructors use two-line trainer kites to escort students through wind-safety strategies, basic steering and kite control, and snowman avoidance. Students prowl across the ground and through the air in power-kiting lessons and skim the waves in water-kiting lessons. Building on the lessons imparted during basic and intro classes, two- or three-hour lessons guide more experienced kiteboarders through steering, flight control, riding skills, and launching and landing methods. Aerial Kiteboarding supplies all rentals and equipment for its classes and lessons, which run seven days a week depending on weather and the amount of reindeer air traffic. Aside from their flagship kiteboarding packages, the outdoorsy company also features other services such as kayak rentals and scenic boat rides.
