These experienced and certified instructors have knowledge, patience, and an ability to communicate effectively. Each of these are essential to our safe and fun learning environment. We can safely get you kiting quickly, saving you time and money for your own new gear.

All of our students receive an IKO Kiteboarder Card. This card allows students that have achieved IKO level III Independent Kiteboarder become an IKO member, to purchase kiteboarding insurance, rent gear at more than 130 IKO centers globally and gain access to kiteboarding locations that require proof of kiter ability in order to ride.

Don’t waste your time and money with those kiteboarding schools that offer low value “Intro to Kiteboarding” courses that do not give you much real exposure to this great sport. Don’t doubt yourself, you will become a competent kiteboarder with complete instruction and proper practice when you complete our kiteboarding courses.

Discover Kitesurfing and elevate your water sport experience

The IKO Kiteboarding programs are designed to help you learn in a safe way. Your IKO instructor will respect your rhythm and take you through all the steps to reach your goals.

Your level will be certified with your IKO Kiteboarder Card at the end of your lesson, or you can move on to the next level of riding

Water lessons will be taught at one of Alberta’s great locations, that are described on the Local Spots webpage here, and will be held generally on the weekends starting on Fridays. The spot to be chosen will be the most favorable due to wind and weather forecasts.

During this lesson course you will get wet. You will get more acquainted with a kiteboarding kite (the big suckers!) while harnessed to it. More safety issues are covered in this lesson and additional kite piloting skills will be learned on land and in the water. You will then learn the initial basics of body dragging while taming the power through proper control of the kite. See the Kitesurfing lessons page here for more information. *Please note that the Landboarding or the Snowkiting lessons course is required as a prerequisite to register for the kitesurfing (water) course.
