How Long it takes to learn kiteboarding?
Let's be realistic, in average it takes 6 to 10 hours to get up on the board and ride both directions. It is crucial to understand that part of the learning process is to emphasize on all safety procedures and also practice them.
Many "instructors" may promise you a faster progression because they simple skim through those aspects and do not respect the safety standards. Therefore you will not be autonomous after your lessons and likely get in trouble once you go on your own.
At MiamiKiteboarding we are very committed to turn you into a safe and independent kiteborder.
