Do I need lessons?

Kiteboarding is more finesse than strength. You are hooked in with a harness to control the power of the wind, so it takes very little upper body strength.

Do I need to be in great shape to kiteboard?

 Being in better shape may help you learn a little faster, but we have taught people of all ages, shapes, and sizes.
You should be comfortable in the water and be able to swim.

What can I do to prepare for my lessons?

Kiteboarding uses large muscle groups, so working your legs, core and back will help you. It will allow to stay fresh for your time with a kite instructor. Yoga and anything you can do to improve your flexibility is also recommended.

How long does it take to learn to kiteboarding?

In general, we suggest planning for at least 3 days to get you to where you can practice on your own safely. Practicing flying kites and wake-boarding will increase your learning curve. The more time you have on the water with an instructor, the farther up the learning curve you will get.

Generally speaking, with the intensive Lifestyle program it take 3 days to become a self-sufficient kiteboarder.

What can I do to prepare for my first lesson?

Watching  instructional videos before your lesson will give you a preview to the concepts covered in your first lesson.
You should also get the feeling of a kite instructor so you can learn the basics of kite control before your lesson. This will expedite your learning curve.

Should I take a Private Lessons?

Many of our customers appreciate the private attention of Private and Semi-Private Lessons. The Privates will allow you to learn at your own pace and customize your curriculum. Also Privates and Semi-Privates will allow you to book your lessons starting any day of the week. They can be Full and Half Day increments.

Who can join me for a Semi-Private Lesson?

During a Semi-Private lesson, you and your friend or family member will take turns using the kite so should be similar weight (within 50 pounds) and ability level. Semi-Privates are a great way to make the lesson extra fun by sharing it with someone else. It is also really helpful to your learning process to be able to watch someone working on similar skills while talking with the coach. It helps you get a better understanding of how everything works together and often provides great breakthroughs.

 

BEFORE AND DURING YOUR LESSON

What should I bring?
Lifestyle Kiteboarding provides some refreshments on the beach and water wear to go into the water such as wetsuits, neoprene booties (optional), helmets, etc. Bring a good disposition for learning and a lot of sunscreen.
What is included with the lesson?

Our lessons include all of the rental kiteboarding gear needed for the lesson, a Kiteboarding instructor, and radio helmets to help the coaching for kite lessons.

During your lesson, you will have access to our Rental Shop which is stocked with the latest gear to make sure we have the right set-up for you to learn in all conditions. We have kites as small as 4 meters and as big as 17 meters. This is also a great time to try the gear you might be interested in buying.

What if there is no wind?

If there is no wind, we request that you show up and meet up with your coach to make a plan for the day. If there is no wind at the schedule time of your lesson, we will push back to reschedule on the day of your lesson.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule my lesson?

If you need to cancel or reschedule your lessons or camp you can do so up to 14 days before the scheduled lesson or camp time with no reschedule fees. A rescheduling fee of $50.00 will be applied to any lessons or camps canceled or rescheduled within 14 days of the scheduled lesson or camp start time, and the remaining balance will be placed on your store account. No rainchecks will be issued for cancellations or no shows within 48 hours of a lesson or camp.

What are the next steps after my lessons?

Your coach will help make a customized plan for you at the end of your lesson based on your progress during the lesson. They can help you get the right kiteboarding gear so you can keep practicing.
