How Many Lessons Should I take

Everyone learns at their own pace.  But here are Pacific Watersports, we recommend taking 3 lessons.  For most people, 3 lessons is enough to get you independent.  Once you are an independent kiteboarder, you will be able to go out and practice kiteboarding by yourself.

Becoming a competent kiteboarder takes time, and the journey is worth it. The key is patience and enjoying the journey. Here is a standard outline of what to expect from your first 3 lessons with us.

Lesson 1

Lesson 1 is all about kite control.  These kites are powerful, so it is important to gain the skills, so that you control the kite, instead of the kite controlling you.
