Lesson Plans & Costs
Learn to Kiteboard - $150/hour
(min duration; 1.5 hours)

This is for those of you that have; never tried Kiteboarding before, or have some previous lesson experience but you are not yet up and riding. If you have never done anything before we will introduce you to Kiteboarding and teach you everything you need to know over a number of lessons according to our lesson syllabus found here. If you have some previous experience, you can discuss this and your goals with our instructor who can then slot you into our lesson syllabus or customise the lesson altogether to best fit your needs.

One on one coaching - $100-125/hour
Your gear/our gear
(min duration; 1 hour)

This is for all of you intermediate and advanced kiteboarders who are looking for a safe launch and land service, local knowledge and 1 to 1 coaching throughout the lesson to progress your kiteboarding to the next level. Whether you want to learn jumps, transitions or your first raley we can help you. Our instructor will discuss the best riding locations with you before launching and trimming the kite. The instructor will then follow you in the safety boat for the entire session coaching and capturing images. When you have finished we will safely pack away your gear into the boat and take you to your drop off location.

Lets get riding upwind - $150/hour
(min duration; 1 hour)

This is for those of you that can consistently board start in both directions but require coaching on your board riding technique to get upwind and start nailing transitions. You should have already mastered most/all of the basics, fly and relaunch the kite well and just need to improve your board skills. At this stage, we can be a little more flexible with lesson times. The most effective and recommended lesson time at this stage is still 1.5 hours but your skill level will now make it worthwhile doing a single hour lesson if time is a constraint.

Tow up and safety cover - $75-100/hour
Your gear/our gear
(min duration; 1 hour)

This is for all of you intermediate and advanced kiteboarders who are looking for a safe launch and land service, local knowledge and don't require any coaching or supervision. Our instructor will take you all the way upwind by boat just inside the Eustatia reef so that you can explore the whole Eustatia sound during your session. This allows you to enjoy a downwinder during your session back towards Saba Rock. Whilst we won't be alongside you in the boat, our instructor will keep an eye on you all session and launch the boat should you require urgent assistance or you would like to land.
