From there, we can work on anything you desire: transitions, jumps, hops, grabs, spins, rolls, self-rescue, self-launching & landing, surfboard and wave riding, and unhooked maneuvers such as raileys and s-bends.

Don't know if this kiteboarding thing is for you or short on time? The Kite Flight introduces the thrilling feeling of flying a power kite to those who want to just 'try it out'. Easy for the commitment-challenged and affordable for most!

Self-Sufficiency Session...

Bring your gear & pick your own How-To, from the Sandbar:
$150 for 1 person / $225 for 2 people

Are you new to kiteboarding or riding in the Gorge and want an overview of navigating at the Hood River Sandbar?  Or maybe you would simply like to work on some advanced independent kiteboarder skills? We leave this 1 hour open to go over what's important to you. This is not a jet-ski lesson, and is conducted from the Hood River sandbar.  Like build-your-own-pizza: Select 2-3 things you would like to learn and we'll get through as much as we can in 1 hour:

  • how to self-launch
  • how to self-land
  • how to self-rescue
  • learning about Gorge wind
  • how to setup and launch from the Hood River Sandbar
  • the tips & tricks of kiteboarding the Hood River / Central Gorge area (ie hazards, currents, best wind, best swell, best flatwater, where to launch, spots to avoid, etc.)

And lastly, a follow for peace of mind...

The Supervised Ride or Downwinder $180 - You bring your gear, we bring safety.

For the rider who is already up and riding but would like some peace of mind and safety nearby. Followed by one of our instructors on a jet ski, you'll be whisked away from the busy Hood River Sandbar and start your follow or downwinder with cleaner wind and less anxiety around you. Your instructor will help you get launched, then safely support you for the duration of your kiteboarding session. 1 1/2 hours, no instruction. Need gear? You can rent the top of the line 2016 Liquid Force, North, and Airush Kiteboarding gear from us at a downwinder discount of $160 for the day!


For open lesson time, the rate is $150 per hour. There is a minimum of 1 hour if instruction is on land, and 2 hours if instruction is in the water.

All packages must be paid in full in advance to receive the package discount.
