How long does it takes to learn kiteboarding?

To be realistic, on average, it takes 6 to 10 hours to get up on the board and ride in both directions. It is crucial to understand that part of the learning process is to emphasize all safety procedures and practice them to be a safe kiteboarder, not only for yourself but for people around you!

Many "instructors" may promise you a faster progression because they simply skim through those aspects and do not respect the safety standards.

Therefore you will not be autonomous after your lessons and likely get in serious trouble once you go on your own or endanger others on the beach, which is the worst case scenario for our fragile community.

At Miami Kiteboarding, as an IKO affiliated training center, we are very committed to turn you into a safe and independent kiteborder.

Students usually buy their own gear after this course: Buy wisely by trying our Selection of Top Brands Equipment with your instructor's guidance. And receive 3 hours of LESSONS FOR FREE!
