LESSON CENTER

What to expect

Ocean City, New Jersey

Lesson #1 is on the beach learning basic kite flying and safety. Every lesson after #1 we take our kite skiffs out for usually a 4+ hour session to our bay location to take advantage of the calmer protected water.

St. Croix, US Virgin Islands

We meet you on the beach with all the gear we will need. The beach we usually teach at has ideal side-on wind conditions as well as a crescent shape creating a natural ‘catch’ on the downwind side.

Kiteboarding Camps

Kite Camp St. Croix, USVI

We are excited to get back to the warmth and crystal clear blue waters of St. Croix and are gearing up to run this seasons kite camps.

We are offering several camps this year, and anticipate them being better than ever! If you haven't been on one of our trips before or haven't been to St. Croix, you should know you are in for quite a treat if you come. The best part (at least for us kiters) is that during this time of the season our wind is very consistent-typically blowing all day and all night from December through March.
