(About 2 hours of private instruction)

This lesson is great for someone who is working on the last step towards independence, upwind riding or for advanced lessons like jumping, transitions, pro tricks or strapless riding. The instructor and the student are both out on the water with their own kites, riding. They are able to communicate with two-way radio helmets, like a hands-free conversation. The instructor is able to both instruct and demonstrate, while being able to aide with water starts or board retrieval for example. At the end of the lessons, the student and instructor ride downwind and the downwinder ends at Baja Joe’s on South beach where our school is located. If you are new to us, we recommend scheduling a jet ski assisted lesson first, so the instructor is confident that this is the next best step for you.
