Most people that learn kiteboarding have little experience with kites. Many come from a background of similar sports like: water skiing, surfing, bodyboarding, skimboarding, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. Even though these sports are related, kiteboarding is significantly different and requires instruction. Here at Jupiterkiteboarding we recommend that you start with the basics of kite flying and always follow the safe kiteboarding guidelines.
Jupiter Kiteboarding believes strongly in the use of trainer kites. These are smaller kites which you can purchase and fly before taking a lesson. Although trainer kites comes in several sizes, they are much smaller on average than the inflatable kites that are used on the water for kiteboarding.
The main skill to master with the trainer kite is steering while maintaining correct body posture. Once the trainer kite has been mastered we recommend taking a lesson with one of our IKO or PASA certified instructors. On average 3 – 9 hours of instruction is required to get up and going on a board.
