Any kiteboarder will tell you the best way to get started is to take lessons.
No need to buy gear at this stage. Gear is provided, and within 2-3 days you will know what kiteboarding is all about and may even be ready to progress on your own.
Nahant Kiteboarding offers private lessons at a flat rate of $100/hr from an IKO certified instructor.
Lessons cover the full range from beginner to advanced riding.
Lessons are customized to meet each rider's abilities and desired progression.
Beginners typically take 2-3 days of lessons (at 3 hours/day).
Lessons include use of state of the art gear: kite, harness, board.
Students must provide a wetsuit and booties suitable to stay warm for an extended time in the water for the season.
