    1. How do I get started kiteboarding?

      Take this Intro to Kiteboarding course in order to master flying a small two line foil trainer kite on land.After taking this course, you can take a beginner land and water lesson from a certified kite school. 

    2. Can I just go right to the water and skip the land lesson?

      Kiteboarding is all about the kite. You have to master the kite on land (first the trainer kite, then an inflatable kite) before you will be proficient enough to control the kite on the water. 

    3. How does kiteboarding work?

      The kite pulls you along while you ride on a wakeboard style board with footstraps.  Kiteboarding uses the same engineering principles as flying.  The kite acts as a foil, and the wind creates "lift" in the kite that makes you glide along the water.
