I was very satisfied with the water lesson. Had plenty of time to practice the skills and gain confidence to continue onto the next stage. Looking forward to the next lesson and getting up on the board. Teddy was very patient and knowledgeable. He was able to explain the skills clearly and point out the mistakes, so I can correct...

Traveled over the weekend from New York City to their spot in Ocean City, NJ which took about 2hrs and was well worth it. I partook in the full day lesson (land and water courses). _________________ Some info on my end: I had experience with a trainer kite for about half a year but never handled a full size kite...

Chris and his crew are absolutely the best! Ever see a kiter zoom down the beach while you're strolling the OCNJ Boardwalk? Dream of ripping through the water with only the power of the wind and a board? Give LEKS a call! Chris and his instructors are top notch, professional, and patient. I've been taking a couple lessons every year... More

I met Chris and his lovely girlfriend at Great Pond, St Croix, US Virgin Islands, a fantastic kite spot with blue warm and flat water ... when the wind got too light for my 12m FX, Chris offered to use his bigger kites, several times ... for FREE! I don't think I will ever meet this kind of generosity ...... More

They are truly awesome to work with. I came in with the kite skills but very minimal experience on a board. They have employ different teaching styles that fit the individual. If one way doesn't work, they provide another way to understanding the process until you get it. I would recommend Chris and Co. to anyone looking to get into... More

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
