Kiteboarding is a simple sport to learn with the correct instruction. Our IKO Certified instructors have a diverse range of teaching experience in numerous fields and from all over the world. This helps us cater your lesson to suit your specific needs.

Two helpful hints…
1. Wind sport and board sport knowledge will most likely expedite your learning but this experience is by no means a necessity.
2. Upper body strength is not necessity. No matter what your size or strength you may be, we have most likely taught someone similar before. We have students from 6 years to 72 years old, both male and female.
