Kiteboarding St Petersburg focuses on kiteboarding lessons throughout the Tampa Bay area. Lessons are available 7 days a week.
What Makes Us Unique
We create safe and independent kiteboarders. What makes us unique is that all of our instructors are IKO certified (International Kiteboarding Organization) and are professional riders. This enables us to better teach kiteboarding so you learn quicker and safer. We teach in waist deep water away from other riders to create a safe and stress free environment. We utilize jet ski support and the latest Cabrinha gear. Everything we do is focused towards providing the highest quality lessons so our students have the tools they need to safely and proficiently kiteboard on their own.
We are one of the few IKO Kite Centers in Florida.
Stage One: Kite Control
Lesson Duration: 2 – 3 hours
All gear is provided (specific Cabrinha kite models or boards can be requested). By the end of the lesson you’ll learn how to proficiently operate a kite.
