Choose from Three Options

  • $30 for a two-hour, land-based introductory kiteboarding course for one (a $60 value)
  • $54 for a two-hour, land-based introductory kiteboarding course for two (a $120 value)
  • $90 for a three-hour discovery basic course for one (a $180 value)

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 training kite and then a power kite. With the discovery basic course, the first lesson in a series of three, small groups of two or three students–with or without prior experience–go through an orientation on solid ground and then hit the waves to work on proper launch and landing techniques, as well as ways to maximize safety while on the water. The classes, which rotate among locations and are subject to weather conditions, are scheduled by appointment and take place from Monday–Saturday between 9 a.m.–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.
