How to choose the right kite school

Here are some things to compare when selecting an instructor or school. Not all instruction is equal; it is in your interest to find the best training available. Bottom line, don’t take things for granted, do your homework, and get the most out of your training.

1. Is the instructor certified by a recognized training organization? (PASA , IKO , REAL, BKSA or similar)
2. How long has he/she been professionally teaching kiteboarding?
3. What is the instructor-to-student ratio?
4. What are his lesson plans, anticipated skill progression and time requirements for you, considering your related experience, physical condition and predicted wind/conditions?
5. Is training self-sufficient kiteboarders a primary goal?
6. Is the training area suffi ciently large, uncrowded and away from hard objects?
7. Does he have liability insurance? Is the business registered?
8. Does he use a chase watercraft (boat, jetski, kayak) and radio communications?
9. Try to schedule your lessons when conditions are appropriate for learning: 12 to 18 knots, side to side-onshore.
10. Do you communicate well and comfortably with the instructor?
11. Watch a class. What did they accomplish? Did it appear well organized and effective? What do the students think about the experience?
12. Has the instructor dealt with student injuries? If so, what are his emergency procedures?
13. Is new, well-maintained equipment used with current safety systems along with helmets and impact vests?
14. Can he offer any discounts on the purchase of kiteboarding gear?
15. Is he affiliated with the local kiteboarding association?
16. Cost is an important consideration but not the most important consideration. Effective instruction can save you a lot of time, frustration and possibly injury or damaged equipment.
