I took my first ever kiteboarding lesson from Brian’s this last summer. I was a little nervous at first while driving from my home in Portland to The Event Site (the local kite beach) but that quickly passed as soon as I got to Brian’s.

Very good instructors and good equipment. From Beginning to near pro level this is the place. Getting to know Brian is worth the visit even if you don't take a lesson

Brian is the Owner and he cares about the experiences of his clients. Kiran was our instructor. We have 2 teenagers, both beginners. The beginner lesson was 3 hours -- 1 hour on land with special windsurfing board and then in the cove for practice. Kiran gave the boys great instructions and when they hit the water they both got...
