FAQ’s

Do I have to take all three lessons? No, you can take as many lessons as you'd like. However, we have developed this system over the last 15 years and have found it to be the best way to develop a novice from the very beginning, all the way to riding comfortably! Everyone is different, and some people will learn faster than others. Our instructors will tailor the lesson to your ability. Many people feel comfortable enough after 2 lessons to go out and practice on their own, but it is completely up to the individual.

Why can’t I get on the board my first lesson? Kiteboarding is a sport that takes time and practice. For most people this is completely different from anything they have done. We often compare it to wakeboarding while driving the boat at the same time. Just like learning to drive a boat, learning to fly a kite is fun, but most people are not comfortable enough after one lesson to add the board. Any one that tells you that you it's safe to kiteboard after one lesson is not being honest with you. Kiteboarding takes time and patience, but the payoff is well worth it.

What do I need to bring for my lesson? Nothing besides clothes to use in the water. We provide all the equipment, water, wetsuits - even drysuits for those hearty souls braving our winter waters! YES - we can and will teach 12 months a year!

How do I schedule my lesson? You can do it one of three ways. You can call the shop, you can send an e-mail to info@xlkites.com, or you can order it thru the website. We will contact you and schedule a date for your lessons.
