GROUND & Water School included


This is the first stage of the game. This one hour course will get the student hands on with a two line kite and teach them the fundementals of Kiteboarding.

This on land class covers setting up, tuning, line management, kite safety and control of the wind window, rider responsibility, and flying techniques. "Once you can masterfully accomplish this then getting up on the water is the easy part!".




Let the body dragging begin and the fun! Once you are this far you are in there. This half of the lesson puts the student hands-on in the water.

This portion covers relaunching the kite from the water, body drags, water starts on to the board, self rescue and basic riding. Get ready to unleash!

"When you want to jump in the water and learn to kite surf, do it in Corpus Christi w/ Third Coast Kite Surfing. They have an awesome spot where the water is about 18 inches deep, and the wind is very consistent. This makes it VERY easy to learn to launch the kite as well as to get up on the board. Having a certified instructor that has been doing this for 8 or 9 years, makes a BIG difference!. (Just because someone knows how to kite surf doesn't mean they know how to teach you). I've tried other locations where I waited many days for a windy days, or where the water was deep and I had to drink half the ocean learning to get up on the board. This is the ideal spot where you get up and get going on the board and skip all of those frustrations, plus you typically don't need a wetsuit."

"I thought the lesson was very comprehensive and the instructor did an excellent job of assesing my needs. I really enjoyed the lesson. I had taken lessons in the past and wanted to work forward from where my skill level was. The instructor was able to easily evaluate my skill level and help me progress. I look forward to future lessons."



The advantage of the downwinder over the average lesson is the endless time on the water riding. Once the student is up and riding boat support allows riding with constant instruction. This enables the student to accelerate their skill level drastically in a short amount of time.

This is made possible with the use of boat for support to pick the rider up. With the combination of boat support and skilled instruction the beginner rider quickly advances to their next level..
