Kiteboarding is a sport involving a steep learning curve due to the sophisticated equipment and the technique required to practice the sport. So, to learn kiteboarding you absolutely need to have someone to introduce you to the sport in the best way possible and to get you addicted too: a qualified instructor at a professional kite school.
When you are thinking of where to learn and go kiteboarding it’s best to inform yourself about your nearby home spots first. Once you’ve checked local spots, you can consider learning there or somewhere else.
The ideal learning conditions to look for: warm temperatures, flat and shallow reefless waters: 2-5 feet deep, with no obstacles and stable winds ranging 12-18 knots.
You will also need 3 to 5 days of practice to become an independent rider. This means 3 to 5 days of wind.
So first of all, select the spot where you want to learn and check what’s the best time of the year in terms of wind probability. Schedule your lessons and learn together with a certified IKO Instructor.
