What Doesn’t Work:

  •    Putting students in the water before they learn to fly a kite well.
  •    Putting students in the water before they learn to fly one handed.
  •    Teaching students that letting the kite fall or crash is fine.

  •    Selling students to big of a kite, for their own comfort level and or size.
  •    Telling students they are qualified for board skills, when they can’t even body drag.
  •    Telling students they don’t need to practice flying their kite.
  •    Teaching students that relaunching is the only option needed when kite is down.
  •    Failing to teach students how to self launch, self landing, and self rescue.
