Have you ever looked out on the horizon and been amazed by Kitesurfers sailing and soaring above the water? Now is your chance to try this exciting new sport!
This course covers the essentials to begin kiting. It will cover a bit of theory, and you will have considerable hands-on experience.
The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the sport of kiting, and teach you about how and why a kite flies, safe flying practices, and different kite types. This is a land based lesson with a small traction kite, where you'll learn kite control without risk of injury.
After completion of this course, you should have the basic skills and fundamentals to hit the water or the snow and take your kiting to the next level.
What To Wear
Unfortunately, a lot of what people see of kiteboarding is the freestyle end of kiteboarding, where riders are hucking themselves 20-35 ft in the air, "going off". While this is a great, exciting part of the sport, it is not for everyone. Freestyle does add a level of risk that not all are comfortable with. Many riders love to quietly slice through the wind, leaving all their troubles behind, relaxing, suspended under the pull of the kite. Others like to go Mach 6 across the water or ice. Some like to carve huge GS turns downwind. Kiteboarding is about finding your ride, the ride that gives you the most pleasure with a level of risk you are comfortable with.
