If you’ve never kiteboarded before than this will be your first chance to feel the raw power of a kite. You will have a 1:1 student to teacher ratio. You and your instructor will go over the following kiteboard skills, so you can learn how to do this extreme sport safely:

1. Setup Your Kiteboard Gear - Setting up your equipment is extremely important. It can mean the difference between a happy kite session on the water or an unhappy one in the hospital. We will spend plenty of time on making sure you get this part right because we want you safe!

2. Wind-Windows, Self-Rescue, & Other Kiteboard Knowledge - Your instructor will go into detail on how to fly your kite, what to do if you're a mile offshore and you break a line, and other essential skills that will make your kiteboarding experience fun and safe. 

3. Fly A Trainer Kite - If you haven't had the chance to fly a trainer kite, your instructor may have you fly one for about 10 minutes before you fly a power kite. We do this because it makes flying a power kite safer, but it also makes you learn faster. 

4. Launch & Land A Power Kite - Your instructor will show you how to launch and land a power kite. This entails learning hand signals, knowing where to position yourself if you're the kite flyer or kite catcher, and when to let go or catch the kite. 

5. Fly A Power Kite With Assistance - You will fly the power kite with the assistance of your instructor. Your instructor will show you how to control the kite with just a push and pull of the wrist. 

6. Fly The Kite Solo - Once you've mastered flying the kite assisted, you're instructor will let you fly the kite by yourself. Your instructor will be right there with you if you need help. 

7. Body Drag - This will be your first chance to feel the raw power of the kite. You will experience this by body dragging in the water well away from land and other obstacles. Your instructor will be dragging with you the enitre time until you feel comfortable to take over completely.

8. Solo Body Drag Upwind- After you feel comfortable body dragging with your instructor, you will have the chance to drag without him. This part is essential before you get a hold of the board.

9. Board Drags - You will get the board, but you will learn to drag with it. Once you can stay upwind with the board, this is when its time to water start.

10. Water Starts - You will be shown how and where to position your kite and board, so you can easily get up and start riding.

Kite beach is the best place in the world to consistently learn how to kiteboard

The western end of Kanaha Beach is known as Kite Beach. Just a few minutes from Kahului Airport, This beach is the jewel of the north shore. Kite beach offers a variety of conditions to suit different levels of riders. There is a long curving sandy beach that is great for beginners. The side-onshore winds bring the beginners safely back to shore. The area closest to the beach lies inside a protective reef, keeping the water flat in the beginner's area. A little farther from shore the waves start to break and create a great venue for intermediate and advanced riders. In winter, the largest waves breaking on the outside reef are strictly for expert riders only. The wind at kite beach blows all year round. The steadiest and strongest winds blow through the summer months. In winter the winds can be more diverse, and larger kites are often used. Occasionally Kona winds will blow from the south, creating an offshore at Kite beach. Kite Beach Maui has more windy days than any other kiteboarding destination in the world. The valley in central Maui creates a wind tunnel effect that funnels the wind into kite beach, in a better direction and strength.
