THE LESSON PROGRAM

Kids Kiteboarding Lessons

Maui Sports Unlimited Kiteboarding School - www.mauisportsunlimited.com

We now teach more kiteboarding lessons to women and children than ever before. The new equipment has become a lot safer with depowering kites that give you the ability to “stop” whenever you want. And now you get to choose how much power you want, a lot or a little! This means the nowadays you don’t have to be super athletic to kiteboard, and can ride according to your fitness level and stamina. This has allowed older people to come into the sport and enjoy the thrills of kiteboarding at their individual level. Whatever your background, and experience level, we can now create a program that is tailored to you, and can teach you the sport without too many stresses or strains.


Introductory Lessons 

Trainer Kites & Ground School: When trying kiteboarding for the first time we will start you on the trainer kites on the land to get all your steering skills, we call this ground school. The Trainer kites are not exactly like the kites you flew as a kid. They are mini-versions of the traction kites you will be using, to give you the simulator effect to learn the skills you will be using in the water later. Our trainers can be quite powerful, with about one half to one third of the full power you will be using later. During the ground school you will learn about the wind, steering theory, some safety skills, and visual communication that we will be using on the water. While flying the trainers you will be assisted and guided by your instructor who will give you vital feedback and information.

LEI Kite-Flying: The next step we get onto the larger LEI (leading Edge Inflatable Kites) ad show you the power system. The larger kiter have more power, but they can be adjusted to vary the power you use. These kites are what we take into the water because they have the ability to  float and relaunch from the water. These LEI kites are inflated with air so that they can float, and you learn haw to relaunch them from the water. Once you have mastered all your LEI kite skills on land we go into the water and do some body surfing behind the kite. This is a critical phase needed to master the kite before getting onto the board. Body surfing (aka “body-dragging”) is lots of fun, and you really get to experience the feeling of power that the kite can produce. In this phase you will learn how to fly the kite one-handed and body drag in control upwind in both directions. You will also learn the self-landing, and most importantly how to stop the kite (in an emergency) and depower it completely whenever you want.

In this lesson you will discover what kiteboarding has to offer. You will try the trainer Kite, do the ground school, get into the water with the body-drags, and have a go at the water start. This lesson offers you the best “overview” of the sport.

Three Hour Private Lesson – $255.

Are you tired of short runs and a long walk back up the beach? Your learning curve will accelerate dramatically once you can stay upwind. If you can edge upwind then you are ready to learn to jibe turn and to jump. The ability to kite upwind and jump in control are essential skills for safe, fun experiences on the water. These lessons are also good as refresher courses if it has been a while since you did your last lesson. Our personalized instruction can help you to reach this point.
