Scuba diving, hang gliding, boat operation and kiteboarding demand a realistic amount of training time. Teaching the basic mechanical skills can be fairly quick, but there is all that necessary safety knowledge. It’s a package deal. There is knowing how to steer an airplane, for example, and then there is learning how to operate a plane under all the varied conditions, including emergencies.
Kite instructors indicate that first-time students are requesting an average of three to five lessons. Kiteboarders may wish to come back to hone skills following initial training. Quality instruction may be the best kiteboarding investment you make, as it can last a lifetime.
