The first kite lesson is the best one to do together. We want to pair you up with a friend that is of similar weight and experience. There is a ton of information covered in the first lesson, so sharing that time together can be fun. We will be taking turns going back and forth flying the kite, but staying together. It is very beneficial to watch someone do the same thing you just tried. You get a much better visual understanding of what you were doing right and wrong. You also get to take short breaks allowing you to rest.
Starting at the beginning with understanding the wind window and how to set up the kite and lines. We will quickly move into the water and start flying the inflatable kite in a harness. Slowly putting the kite in the proper position that your instructor demonstrates. You will push the safety release and learn how to completely shut the kite off. Reset the quick release and do a relaunch. From there we will start some body dragging through the water. Not only is this super fun, it gives you a real respect for the power in the wind. Downwind body dragging to the left and right, generating power with the same technique used when riding the board. At some point the kite is going to crash into the water. Our instructor will be right next to you offering the best tips on relaunch. In waist deep water with brand new equipment and professional instruction the kite will back up quickly. Moving forward we change into upwind body dragging and one hand kite flying. Once you have good control and demonstrate all the challenges from your instructor we can start to play with the board.
Board dragging, one hand control and managing the kite and board at the same time can be challenging. The next step will be trying to get the board on your feet without rotating. Proper kite and board position will have you all lined up and ready to slide the feet into the straps. Now using the same skills learned earlier in the lesson we try to get a water start. Diving the kite down and standing up on the board you will start to sail across the water. or wipe out. It is a very exciting time in your learning kiteboarding, and really fun to share with a friend in a semi private lesson. Bring your phone in a waterproof case to capture some unforgettable moments with Force Kite and Wake.
Once your at the point in lessons where you can get up and ride a little, we really suggest taking private lessons. Private instruction really lets the instructor focus on you and dial in the gear to speed up your progression.
