Yes, there is still much uncertainty around COVID-19. But, one thing is sure – kiteboarding offers invigorating and healthy fun and adventure!
There are so many reasons to be grateful for where we live. Not the least of which, is easy access to endless West Coast outdoors just beyond our doorstep.
Thanks to the contour of the Howe Sound and the resulting strong and consistent winds, Squamish – mother of wind – provides some of the most exceptional conditions in the world for kiteboarding, windsurfing, and sailing.
Again, so incredibly grateful!
As the only business of our kind in operation in the area for 2020, we offer the very best in water sport instruction, activities, and rentals. That includes doing everything we can, every day, to help stop the spread of COVID-19 while our clients enjoy our unique brand of fun and excitement on the water.
What are we doing to keep you safe?
- Frequently sanitizing surfaces that are continually touched
- Providing hand washing stations & sanitizers
- Implementing social distancing measures
- Thoroughly washing all gear between uses
- Requiring frequent hand washing by our staff
- Requiring Declarations of Health from our clients
Keep in mind that, while we do have larger boats, it can be difficult to maintain social distancing at all times.
To participate in any of our lessons or small groups, every participant must sign a waiver and a Declaration of Health confirming, 1. they have not been sick; and 2. they haven’t been in contact with anyone who is over the preceding 14 days.
Our groups range from four to six people. However, if you’d prefer the peace of mind of knowing everyone, organize your own group and kite with only the family and friends in your bubble!
