Kiteboarding for Kids - Are your kids ready?
Kiteboarding has an incredibly empowering effect on kids! We are here to help get your kids on their way safely and confidently to becoming independent kiteboarders. Is your child ready to learn to kiteboard? Here are some questions that might help you answer that question and decide to put him/her into lessons:
- Is your child a competent and independent swimmer?
- Does your child remain calm under tense and time-sensitive situations?
- Is your child open to learning and finding success over time vs requiring instant-gratification?
- Is your child patient?
- Does your child want to learn to kiteboard?
If you answered "YES" to each of these questions, then your child has already taken the first step to learning to kiteboard! We teach children as young as 9 years old however... it is important to keep in mind that we have had children who are maturely ready to learn to kiteboard at 7 years of age vs some teens at 16 who are not ready to learn to kiteboard. You, as a parent, need to make that call. If your child is younger than 7, we recommend purchasing a trainer kite and flying the trainer kite with your son/daughter to get comfortable with wind and kite gear.
