This is the lesson that gives you the chance to' ride. Waterstart kiteboarding classes are designed to build on your kite skills covered in the intro, add in the kiteboard, and now we're working on getting your first rides. The beginning of the lesson usually involves some practice getting the board on your feet while flying the kite one-handed and maintaining proper position. Also covered is board-recovery techniques, upwind body dragging, and useful power strokes. When ready, you will be using the kite to generate power to stand up on the board for the first time! This class includes a dedicated chase boat with your instructor close behind to provide helpful instruction and proper techniques in your ear by means of waterproof radio helmets. Everyone learns at different rates, so some people take this class twice.
