Squamish BC has got to be one of the best places in the world to learn kiteboarding! Don’t let the cold water turn you away because the unbeatable views, amazing atmosphere and incredible instructors will make your experience one you won’t forget.
To help you learn kiteboarding the quickest, safest and more fun way, at Squamish Watersports we have changed our teaching ways to suit our students wants and needs. You can learn all the theory at home with our intro video so you can get straight to the fun part on the water when you arrive.
To make sure you don’t miss out on any lesson time we ask that you arrive 30 minutes early for your lesson to get suited and ready when your instructor arrives. You will then be shuttled out into the Howe Sound way upwind away from all the other kiters where you instructor will set up all the gear for you. You will then learn to pilot the kite from the boat. Once you have mastered the piloting skills you will then practice body dragging in the water and progress to the board!
Not only do we offer beginner lessons, but also intermediate and advanced lessons. Your instructor will be right behind you in the boat at all times to yell out instructions the second you need them which is an amazing way to progress.
Apart from amazing kiteboarding, Squamish has so much more to offer. Try hiking the Chief for one of the Sea to Sky’s most breathtaking views. Try mountain biking, rafting, climbing, sailing, wakeboarding and so much more.
Come learn kiteboarding in Squamish BC, you won’t regret it!
