The Light Wind Style class is a MUST for any beginning or intermediate level kiteboarder that wants to learn the special techniques used to succeed in "Light Wind" environments.
Kiteboarders that come from stronger wind environments will find the techniques they were taught, won't work in light wind conditions. Novice kiteboarders who are frustrated with learning to ride will benefit from this class as well. We wrote the book on light wind kiteboarding .... we call it "Light Wind Style".
We have been teaching in light winds for over 14 years, we know what it takes to Ride, Jump and Stay upwind when others can't. This is a one hour "land based" lesson that will teach you "Light Wind Style" and theory. All of these techniques are presented and practiced on land, so you can later succeed in the water. We highly recommend you bring your own kiteboarding equipment and harness to this lesson. We want you to learn these skills with your equipment to gain the most benefit.
