Vancouver Kiteboarding School ships students out to the open, wind-kissed waters of the Squamish Spit for a four-hour group course in kiteboarding, one of the fastest-growing sports. Expert instructors, trained to International Kiteboarding Organization standards, touch on the sport’s fundamentals during an introductory lecture, teaching participants how to determine weather conditions and how to practice water safety. Students then learn to rig, groom, and calm inflatable kites, focusing on safe technique from launch to triple-somersault landing. Once in the water, wind whisperers get hands-on immersion as they practice aquatic relaunch and leap into basic flying, gliding atop deep waters and any unoccupied birdbaths while surrounded by the inlet’s cliffs and sprawling mountain vistas.

One of the longest-operating kiteboarding schools in the area, Vancouver Kiteboarding enables students to breeze-surf and wave-scold with new 2011 equipment. Students are outfitted with all necessary gear, including wetsuits, booties, gloves, harnesses, life vests, radio helmets, and lines, as well as inflatable kites and boards. Class sizes range from about 10 to 12 riders, granting students ample time to capture their own pet waves and come up with nautically themed wave names.
