Always wanted to learn to kite? Join us for a private or semi-private lesson where we'll teach you the basics of kite control and kite surfing on Lake Champlain.
Our instruction is custom tailored for private lessons or small 2-person semi-private groups giving you the flexibility to design your lesson specifically for your kiting skills and goals. Once you've made the decision to contact us for a lesson, we'll add you to a call list to coordinate a day and time when we know it will be windy enough to run your lesson. We need at least 12 to 15 mph of wind for an on-water lesson to be effective. We're watching the wind forecast daily and once we're confident that we'll have enough wind to run your lesson, our instructors will call you a day in advance to let you know that forecast is looking good.
On the day of your lesson we'll meet you at the Burlington Surf Club. Depending on the wind direction we'll kite from the club or have you climb aboard our 17' Zodiac Bay Runner to find the perfect location for the kind of kiting you want to do.
Lessons are offered 7 days a week provided we have enough wind. All kiting equipment is provided by the Surf Club as part of your lesson. We stock a variety of kite sizes for different sized riders and wind conditions. Whether you're a first time kiter or just looking to improve your confidence and skills, we'll get you on the water quickly and safely learning the skills necessary to become a full fledged kiter.
