1

Set Up Rigging Safety
And Theory

Designed to give you the fundamentals that set a solid foundation of proper technique. Giving you the proper vision of what's about to be taught throughout your lessons. Safety is key and you'll know exactly how to properly use the eject system. Est:30-45 minutes on beach depending on the amount of details.

Beginner And Intermediate Kite Controls

Flying the kite is the most important part. We will start with standing in waist deep water using two hands and flying the kite gracefully throughout the wind window. Once mastered we will move to one handed flying. One handed flying will be needed for all steps moving forward, body drags, walking with board and riding.

Advanced Kite Control And Body Drags

Learn to power stoke the kite while traveling through the water. The power stroke is what gets you up on the board. Two handed body dragging is for going downwind and one handed is for crosswind travel. You must be able to control the kite with one hand while body dragging crosswind to retrieve your lost board in water deeper than your shoulders. Losing a board in deep water is the most intimidating hurtle for beginners.

Waterstarts, Short Rides And Controlled Stops

Putting all that we have taught you together and now using the board. Standing up on the board for your first rides is super motivating. We strive to emphasize that short rides will improve your skill much faster than long. We are looking for multiple water starts with controlled stops so as not to lose control of the board and possibly crash the kite. Repetition is key to success!

Advanced Kite Control And Body Drags

Once able to control your speed while riding on the board. You'll quickly discover you can ride anywhere you want. Our first goal at this level is to ride upwind and stay upwind. The ultimate is to be able to ride far upwind and then back downwind to the beach. One handed riding will help you do this.
