$89 for Two-Hour Kiteboarding Lesson ($250 Value)
Beginners practice on the company's trainer kite and learn its safety systems, as well as the basics of wind assessment, location selection, rigging, and kite launching.
Over the course of his teaching career as the IKO–certified head instructor of Kite Control, Tim has helped more than 200 students harness the wind's power. He starts his students’ journey toward waveriding proficiency on trainer kites before letting them get on the water, helping them get a feel for the controls and overcome their fear of buoys. The first hour also includes lessons on the gear's safety systems, as well as topics such as wind assessment, location selection, rigging, and launching. Once students have demonstrated safe flying skills and self-rescue techniques while maintaining correct body posture, they can move on to real waves atop inflatable power kites.
