Prokite delivers a premium kiteboarding experience to our clients. Our lesson program is set up at the waters edge on the SPI Convention Center Beach, located just North of the SPI Convention Center. It is the closest flatwater access beach to town, a wide open space with lots of easy parking and a great place to kite. Stop by any windy day and we will be there, the PROKITE lesson van is easy to spot. Kiteboarding is something anyone can experience. Whether you have friends that already ride and you want to get out there with them, or if you are just curious to find out how it works and what it feels like to handle powerful kites, we can have a fun, safe, and skill building experience together. Our Lesson Services include GOPRO photo and video of your experience for you to take home, as well as radio communication and waverunner support for riding lessons. PROKITE offers New and Used gear available for sale and rental. We are always happy to answer kiteboarding related questions, give a call anytime, and see you at the BEACH!

Hi thanks for inquiring, 12yrs old and 80lbs are a good guideline as to minimum age and size. Exceptions can be made, there are smaller and younger kiteboarders out there! Brett Prokite 541 490 6872
