TAKING LESSONS

If you are wondering how to learn kiteboarding, the first step is to take some lessons. Some people will try to learn kiteboarding on their own by watching some youtube videos, but I really do not recommend it. Kiteboarding can be really dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. For that reason, you need to take some lessons with an experienced instructor so you can learn how to be a safe an independent kiteboarder.

 

BUYING GEAR

At some point in your progression, when you know that you really want to get into the sport, you will need to buy your own gear. You should have a chat with your instructor and see what he recommends for you. Having you instructor helping you choose your gear with you will help make a better decision because he has seen you riding and know what your needs are.

 

 

GETTING SUPERVISED SESSIONS

Before you can go kiteboarding on your own, getting some supervised sessions is part of the progression in how to learn kiteboarding. Those supervised session will allow you to get out there to practice and build up your confidence, while having an experienced instructor watching you and help you if you need it.
