This lesson is conducted on the beach and mostly hands-on. Once you’ve established your understanding of the wind and solid kite control, you are ready for the water. • Intro to gear, equipment and beach safety • Intro to wind window • Kite control with two hands and one hand • Keeping the kite at 12 (neutral) • Fly the kite across the wind window • Walking while keeping the kite at sides • Moving from side to side (12 to 1 & 11 to 12) • Kite launching and landing • Feedback by instructor Day 2: Body Dragging Time to get wet! From the safety of the water, you will learn powered body drags, how to re-launch your kite, and self-rescue techniques. Your goal is safe confident control in the water. We’ll start you behind your instructor so you learn what to do, then with their supervision from behind you, and finally you will do solo runs downwind across the bay, safely supervised, of course. • Review of day 1 (beach policies, spacing between kiters, line lengths) • Re-launch the kite on the beach • Single-handed body dragging without the board • Getting in and out of the water • Rapid kite flying across the wind window in the water • Feedback by instructor Day 3: Become a Board Rider! This is what you’ve been waiting for — getting on the board! This lesson is designed to take all the skills you have previously acquired and — by adding board skills — have you kiteboarding safely and successfully on your own. Your instructor will assess out your boarding skills, and explain how to get a feel for riding on the edge of the board and gaining proper tension in your lines. There is nothing quite like the feeling of your first ride, when it all comes together! • Review of day 2 • Single-handed body dragging with board (if necessary) 3 hours of instruction • Standing up in the water: regular or “goofy” foot and leg positions, powering the kite, how to “edge,” body position • Practice! • Feedback by instructor Day 4: Instructor-Supervised Practice This is where you get to practice your mad new skills! Go solo — from kite and gear set-up to standing up on the board — all under the watchful eye of your attentive instructor. Receive feedback during and after the class, and improve your kiteboarding faster. • Total 7 hours of instruction and 3 or more hours of supervision • Supervision includes one assistance and full kiteboarding gear • The assistance will ensure your safety, help you launch, land and transfer kite. • Extra hours of instruction may be necessary depending on the purchased package.
