After months of encouragement to learn how to kite from my boyfriend, and his parents, I decided to take a lesson. Initially I was very intimidated by the lines, harness, the ocean and shear size of the kite. After just a few minutes with Adam I felt calm and at ease that nothing bad was going to happen and that... More

Adam was a great instructor and showed me the basics of rigging and flying 3 different kites. The three hr session flew by.

I spent several weeks trying really hard to learn to kite board. Adam had me over hump of staying upwind in a matter of hours. This is the best private instruction I have experienced. Kauai is not an easy place to learn but Adam found just the right place to train.

I really liked Adam's approach. He was very safe with making sure the weather conditions were just right for a beginner, taking no chances with offshore winds, or thunderstorms. He was also really good with knowing when I was ready to progress, and making me feel comfortable even when I was a little nervous about moving to the next step.... More

Adam is a great guide to kiteboarding in Kauai. He worked with us to maximize the quality of our time even though the wind was initially rather uncooperative, and we had a fantastic day of riding on our last day in Kauai! He even brought the whales in to breach and keep us company!

My girlfriend and I had a great time in Kauai for a week in mid Jan. Getting a kite session in was on my list of things to do and Adam from Kiteboard Kauai was good enough to hire me a current model set up to get out and have a blast. Adam was giving a lesson to a couple... More

Never ever try to attempt kiting without proper and professional introduction – you will hurt yourself, big time. Before my trip to Kaua'I I decided to research kiteboarding classes offered on the island. I found Adam Finn through an internet search, visited his website, read the reviews and decided to book with him. It was truly the best decision ever.... More

Maui may be better known for kiteboarding, but if you find yourself in beautiful Kauai don't waste the wind! Adam Finn, from Kiteboard Kauai, is a great instructor who will teach at any level. We took two afternoons of lessons from him and had a ton of fun. The first lesson, at Anini, involved basics such as setup, kite control,... More
