Introduction to Kiteboarding Lesson

Interested in kiteboarding? Well we have the perfect way for you to answer that question in a low risk, low cost, format with the 101 Surf Sports Introduction to Kiteboarding lesson. Here's how it works. Late Afternoons we meet at the Marina Green in San Francisco or Mckegney Green in Tiburton for a discounted group lesson on all the in's and outs of Kiteboarding. Each session is 90 minutes in length and costs $60.

80% of kiteboarding is learning to control the kite and our land based Trainer Kite Lesson is the perfect solution to getting you kiting economically. On the water kiteboard lessons run about $125 an hour so you can save big money by first mastering the trainer kite and showing up to your lesson prepared.
