Take kite boarding lessons in Beautiful Maui with patient, understanding and professional instructors. All levels are welcome from the safety conscious beginner to those training to compete. We ask our customer's goals and set up a lesson plan for them whether it is just to learn to fly a kite safely, train for competition or learn to kite surf big waves on a strapless surf board.

Troy was just the right person to get me kiting. I had had a few introductory lessons in Melbourne and some body dragging sessions before getting to Maui. Troy’s style of teaching was calm, methodical, logical and very visual which worked so well for me....More

Troy is a great teacher and focused on my needs at my current level of kiteboarding. I highly recommend for someone like me who is climbing from beginner to intermediate level and intimidated by high wind conditions like we had during my stay in Maui.
