Had a fantastic experience kite surfing with Leading Edge. Researched instructors thoroughly in the NJ area and was very pleased with Chris Doyle​ and Laura Lee. The price, location, level of service, and flexibility made it the best fit. I get very frustrated when I don't pick something up quickly. Chris was very patient and made me laugh which was... More

I'm totally indebted to Chris and Leading Edge Kite School for teaching me this incredible sport. I've had many coaches and teachers in my life but I have to say Chris is the best. Chris give me a lot of information and detail when I asked it, he knew exactly when to encourage me to press on, and most importantly... More

Prior to meeting Chris and taking lessons with Leading Edge, I had two fairly rough & intimidating attempts at the sport and had all but given up at the idea of kiteboarding. My first lesson, he immediately put me at ease with his knowledge, patience, and positivity. The fear, doubt, and nervousness I had going in to lessons soon transformed... More

From the moment I saw people kiteboarding, I knew I wanted to learn how to do it. I had no experience with surfing, wakeboarding, or riding snowboards, but within a day Chris and Sara had me up and riding. I attended a 1 week program in St. Croix and had instruction each day. All aspects of kiteboarding were explained, demonstrated... More

I wanted to learn to kiteboard -- Leading Edge made that happen and so much more! I was nervous, anxious, concerned about time, costs, all the usual things. Chris Doyle and his school completely put me at ease, and amazed me and allowed me to achieve a long-time dream of learning this incredible sport. They're patient, give incredibly clear and... More

Chris & Sara were absolutely fantastic. In one day they took me from not knowing anything at all, to up and riding down the coast. They covered everything from setup to riding, safety, and teardown. If you are looking to get into the sport, I would highly recommend Leading Edge Kiteboard school.

First of all, these instructors are the most friendly helful people you'll find. I had an amazing time learning to kiteboard with them. We were first taught safety then we gradually learned how to put the kite together, controll it and be pulled in the water by the kite. They ease you onto the board later on in your lessons....

We sailed from the British Virgin Islands to St Croix so we could learn to kitesurf with Leading Edge Kite School. From the moment we spoke on the phone to the end of our Leading Edge 7 day kite camp, I knew we had picked the right people. Chris and Sara are ultimately a brilliant team, who are supportive, encouraging... More

Sara and Chris are professional, friendly and super cool. They started by checking all the safety systems with me, making sure I knew how to use them. Once in the water, they were close by at all times in a small boat, giving me advice and cheering when I was doing something right. In only two hours I learned to... More
