This lesson package will teach you how a kite works, about all the gear, kite safety, kite control. First 30 minutes will be held at the shop to teach about wind speed, direction, and most importantly, safety. Then we head to the beach and show you how to set up your gear, and how to control that kite! You will not get your PASA certification after completing this lesson package. This package is not recommended for beginners.
This lesson package will be sure to get you up and going by the end of the total 6 hours. This package is split into two days each 3 hours long. The first day covers the same as the 3 hour lesson, safety, knowing your gear, wind, and kite control. The 2nd 3 hour day consists of resuming where you left off from the first lesson, and eventually getting you into the water. You will learn how to launch on your board and get going! We will get you experience with kiteboarding out on the water and what to do in certain scenarios. By the end of these lesson, you should feel comfortable with kiteboarding and going out on your own and practice! Sometimes students will feel they would like more practice with an instructor. If you feel you will want more practice with an instructor feel free to take a look at our 8 hour lesson package. After your 6 hours, ask the instructor about registering for PASA certification. If the instructor feels you meet credentials for PASA then they can help you get registered. More information n PASA blelow.
This lesson package is split up in two 3 hour lessons, and a final 2 hour private one-on-one lesson with the instructor. The extra private 2 hours will help you get more and faster experience. This allows you to have the instructor go through specific things you may have trouble with, or it can just be for you to get tips and tricks on how to get better, quicker!
