KITEBOARDING LESSONS IN OAHU
Experience the thrill of a lifetime, harnessing the power of the wind! Kiteboarding is an exciting and fast-growing sport that is safe to practice, with proper instruction, and Oahu, Hawaii is the perfect place to learn. Our lessons include use of all of the equipment needed: kite, board, helmet, vest, harness, and leash. Lessons are available for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders.
Who can learn to kite? Kiteboarding is a great lifetime sport for those of all ages. We have worked with students as young as 9, and as old as 70. At a minimum, all students must be of good health, able to swim, and of a minimum physical size.
We follow the International Kiteboarding Organization, or IKO, instructional standards, which have been developed through years of experience teaching and studying the sport. The IKO learning program is ideal for students’ quick skills progression, with a continual emphasis on safety. Upon completion of your lesson, you can receive an IKO Kiteboarder Card, certifying the progress you have made. Your Kiteboarder Card is recognized with instructors and schools around the world, serving to validate your ability level and ensure consistent instruction wherever you go.
