LESSONS

Cruzan Kites offers a well structured kitesurfing school that is geared for safety and has state of the art equipment for all its students. Our lesson program is self paced and designed to meet your schedule and budget.Lessons include an instructor that is certified by the Professional Air Sports Association (PASA), all safety equipment, kites, boards, chase boat and two-way radio communication. The entire course consists of three basic modules.

     
      Ground School:        
     
In this module, the student learns terminology, safety precautions, equipment rigging and maintenance. You also learn flying techniques using a small four line leading edge inflatable (LEI) kite. This module also teaches you how to determine wind direction when choosing a suitable location to safely enjoy kitesurfing.
     
      Body Dragging:        
     
In the second module, the student builds kite flying techniques with larger LEI kites. Here you learn to comfortably control a kite while dragging through the water in a safe and controlled area. The student also learns the correct and safe method to launch and land with the instructors assistance and by his or her self.
     
               
Kitesurfing Solo:        
Once successfully completing the first two modules, the student is now ready to utilize your new skills on a kiteboard in the open water. With constant radio communication between you and the instructor in a chase boat, you will learn how to coordinate the kite, board, wind and waves towards a journey that is addictive beyond imagination!
