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. See the FAQ page for more details.
Aerial Kiteboarding's certified instructors teach students by imparting 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.
