Very nice staff and knowledgeable instructors

I have always wanted to try kiteboarding and did my first lesson with them, and couldn’t have a experience!! Very nice staff and knowledgeable instructors, that make you feel confident and safe right away. They took the time to answer all my questions before booking a course. It was perfect!! I recommend the private lesson (that’s what I took) to anyone who wants to try

Had a semi private lesson today with Lisa

Had a semi private lesson today with Lisa. This would be my 3rd lesson here at Aerial Kiteboarding and this was the best one yet! Excellent instruction so I better understood the dynamics of kiteboarding and I stood up today! Another great bonus is their hot tub. Fantastic soak after lessons. Thanks Lisa! We will be back.

Today was an amazing day!

Today was an amazing day! I had a lesson in learning how to jump and transition with Antoine! He gave great instructions and I always feel safe and have fun when I have a lesson with Aerial Kiteboarding School. They’re very personable and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I keep coming back because I know they’ll take care of me and the knowledge that they give me lasts! Their personal one-on-one lessons significantly increase your progression. Thanks guys and looking forward to more lessons soon!

Friendly & Accommodating

Great school. Friendly, accommodating, focused on the customer / client having a the best experience they can. If getting lessons the instructors are highly experienced and well trained in the systems the school uses. The equipment is high quality and current, often that year. Safety focused and keep in mind the pace of learning. Good folks. Definitely recommend them.

My instructor was amazing!

My instructor was Lisa at Aerial Kiteboarding. She was amazing! Explained everything so clearly and she was able to identify where I was going wrong and gave feedback on how to fix it. Lisa was really approachable and friendly, as well. I’ve taken classes with other instructors, too. Always good instruction and makes the experience enjoyable and memorable. Technically sound as well as creates an awesome community.

Amazing instructors!

I took my crash course last summer and with the help of their amazing instructors was riding in no time. I had a lesson booked for last Saturday, but unfortunately the wind dropped off right before my lesson. The staff were super accommodating and I ended up on a fun paddle boarding tour instead. Would definitely recommend the school to anyone wanting to learn!
