Kiteboarding Lesson Levels


Like learning to ski & snowboard, learning to kiteboard follows a defined, incremental path with endless possibilities of where you can take your skills. Lessons are broken up into the following types to match where you are in the learning curve and your goals for the lesson. You start on Day 1 with a Green Level lesson and progress from there.

Lesson Levels


Day 1 - Green Level courses are tailored for people who have no to minimal experience on a kite or kiteboard. We start by reviewing safety fundamentals, how to rig, and wind dynamics. From there, you'll start to fly a kite and develop your kite control. Our goal on day one is to end the lesson with you getting your first attempts at riding a board. This course is designed to make it easy to learn and provide students the basics needed to get started.



Day 3 - Black Level courses are for students who can ride consistently in both directions, have good kite & board control, and are becoming self-sufficient. These students will focus on the advanced skills needed to go out and kite solo, hold upwind confidently, complete transitions, and start getting air.


Day 2 - Blue Level lessons are for people who have flown a kite, have kite control, and are ready to get up and riding consistently. We start by revisiting and refining your kite control. Then you'll learn how to get up efficiently to ride in both directions and hold an edge consistently, and you'll begin working on transitions and other advanced maneuvers.

Double Black

Day 4 & Beyond - Double Black courses are for already self-sufficient kiteboarders looking to take their existing skill set to the next level. Our talented instructors can teach you to ride a surfboard strapless in waves, jump big (REALLY BIG!), unhook, or land one of the tricks you’ve dreamed of trying. The joy of kiting is that there is always something new to learn!
