OUR KITEBOARDING LESSON GUARANTEE
Green level courses are tailored for people who have limited or no experience on a kiteboard. From rigging and wind dynamics to your first attempts at flying a trainer/inflatable kite even to your first try at riding a board. This course is designed to make it easy and provide students the basics needed to get you started.
Blue level courses are suited for people who know the basics of flying a kite and are ready to get up riding consistently. Students will learn how to get up efficiently and ride in both directions, how to hold an edge consistently, get long board rides, and begin learning transitions and other advanced maneuvers.
Black level courses are aimed at students who are riding kiteboards consistently in both directions, have good control and are becoming self-sufficient. Students will learn the advanced skills they need to hold upwind confidently, consistently complete transitions, and start getting air.
Double black courses are for 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 the tricks you’ve dreamed of trying.

Give us an afternoon of your time, learn new skills, have a blast.
Learn how to get up out of the water for the first time; Edge effectively and control your direction of travel; Learn to “Load & Pop” to jump on flat water; Learn to “Load & Pop” to jump the wake. We utilize specialized boards tailored for beginners/intermediate riders and can get all body types up and riding or help you land the tricks you’ve been trying to master.
We keep a two-person tube on board ready to go at all times. Kids to adults can ride tandem or solo. It is the perfect activity to conclude a lesson after everyone in your group has tried their hand at wakeboarding.
Learn to ride a surfboard behind our boat – From keeping a “Strapless” surfboard on your feet as you get out of the water to sending huge sprays off the wake. This is meant for “advanced beginners” and intermediate level riders. If you would like to wake surf, please be sure to mark “Wake Surfing” on your appointment booking – This will ensure we bring the appropriate board with us.
Learn to fly above the water on a board that has wings beneath it. This is an advanced skill that requires prior experience wakeboarding and strong balance – It is not appropriate for beginners. If you would like to hydrofoil, please be sure to mark “Hydrofoiling” on your appointment booking – This will ensure we bring the appropriate board with us.
A hydrofoil is a board that has a wing attached to it by a mast. You stand on the board in the water and, when you get water traveling across the wing beneath the board fast enough, it generates enough lift to float you free of the water and start flying. The feeling is remarkable. The founders and staff of Next Level Watersports were early adopters of using hydrofoils and have pioneered the methods of teaching people how to do it.
Why a Hydrofoil?
A hydrofoil changes the entire dynamic of traveling through water. When a boat, kiteboard, wakeboard, or surfboard is traveling through the water it generates drag that slows it down. When you utilize a hydrofoil to fly above the water there is no drag holding you back. The result allows you to achieve greater speeds, be impervious to chop, and redefine “What is Possible” on your board.
What is the best way to learn?
Learn how to hydrofoil behind a boat – The speeds are controllable and it allows users to figure out the balance intricacies without distraction. After becoming comfortable hydrofoiling behind a boat, clients can then translate these skills to their kiteboarding and surfing.
What Sports Does Hydrofoiling Apply To?
Kiteboarding: A hydrofoil allows kiters to go out in lower wind speeds, utilize a smaller kite, and cover more ground than is possible on a normal kiteboard. Hydrofoiling opens an entirely new set of possibilities for a kiteboarder.
Surfing: A hydrofoil takes a knee-high sloppy wave day and transforms it to something incredible. When the wave provides you enough speed and the board starts flying, surfers can execute arching, high speed turns normally only accessible on the best of surfing days.
Wake Surfing: After learning the basics, you can hydrofoil a boat wake without a towrope. The hydrofoil allows users to fly along and ride the boat wake continuously creating an “endless wave”.
Efoil Lessons and Tours
What is an Efoil?
The LIFT EFoil is the first ever mass produced electric powered hydrofoil. The EFoil has a three-cell lithium ion battery built into the board that connects to an electric motor to provide propulsion allowing it to fly. You steer the board using your body weight and adjust your speed with a wireless bluetooth remote in your hand to control the throttle. The result allows you to fly along effortlessly like a magic carpet ride in powder. The feeling is one of a kind.
Why an Efoil?
Flying on any hydrofoil requires power. Whether it is the power of a wave to propel you, the power of a kite to catch the wind, or the power of a boat - You are confined on where you can go by your power source. The EFoil turns the game upside down by building the power source into the board. The possibilities on where you can go are endless. The EFoil was designed by LIFT, a US company based out of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. The board is the product of over a decade of R&D and represents a breakthrough in the evolution of hydrofoil technology. From the board, to the battery, to the waterproof electrical components, to the carbon wings that allow it to fly - The LIFT EFoil is a work of art and an engineering marvel. Next Level Watersports is proud to be the first school in North America to offer EFoil lessons and tours.
How does a lesson work?
The EFoil battery lasts just over an hour per charge depending on usage. Each lesson gets you a dedicated instructor for your group and has time built in for conceptual review, safety briefing, time for demonstrations, and plenty of time for riding. We start by going over the equipment and then let you hit the water with the goal of getting you flying by the end of the lesson in a safe, controlled manner.
