Elite Watersports Kiteboarding Lessons
At Elite Watersports, we offer kiteboarding lessons for people with all levels of experience in this exhilarating sport — sometimes also called kitesurfing. Before coming to our sessions, you don't need to know anything about kiteboarding. Classes are available at these tiers:
- Taste Test: If it's your first time, we want to keep it super fun and progressive. This is the lesson for you. From 2-3 hour course that progresses you as fast as safely possible with the goal of going on your first rides. We will miss some details of self sufficiency but no worries, we can cover that in the next lesson
- Intermediate: After you've learned the fundamentals of kiteboarding, we'll move into helping you gain a wider skill set. Our coaches teach you about kite etiquette, transition progression, how to go toeside and your first boosts from the water.
- Advanced: We provide personalized lessons that help you continue progressing with your skills. For example, our coaches teach you to do Big Air Boosting, including take-off, maximum height approach, flying and proper landing.
- Trick: After you've mastered everything you need to know about kitesurfing, we can move on to trick lessons. Here, we'll help you learn how to ride — and stay — upwind. We aim to have you ride far upwind and come back downwind toward the beach. Our instructors will help you master one-handed riding to improve your tricks.
Our experienced team is ready to help you master kiteboarding safely using all the right techniques. All gear is included in our lessons, so you don't have to bring your own. We provide sessions in any of the areas listed above, including St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay and Sarasota.
