Seattle kiteboarding lessons, like Squamish, are available almost the entire year. Over the summer months, starting as early as mid-March, lasting until mid-October is the kiteboarding season. Over the winter months is snow kite season.

Seattle kiteboarding lessons are available through a few different schools based in the city. Both Motion Boardshop and Urban Surf teach beginners off of Jetty Island, where the water is shallow and winds are fairly consistent.

Just a few hours drive from Seattle across the Canadian border is Squamish, BC. Squamish is one of the best kiteboarding spots on North America bringing strong and consistent winds through the summer months. Visiting Squamish is a great alternative to Seattle kiteboarding lessons especially as a weekend get away. Squamish is the perfect vacation destination for the adventure seeker, not only because of the strong winds but because of the variety of activities available.

Enjoy endless hikes including the Chief, Shannon Falls and Tantalus as well as mountain biking, climbing, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. Squamish also offers dining options for every taste and is a micro brewery hub. Just 45 mins north you can explore Whistler Blackcomb or 45 mins south enjoy a walk in Vancouver’s Stanley park or explore the city.
