Semi-private lessons are available upon request for friends or family members at 1.5 times the published private rates.
Beginner Lessons and intermediate/advanced lessons commence at 11 AM. Students of every skill level can select single or multiple day courses (see pricing & course descriptions below).

8 Hour Beginner Camp Breakdown
Day 1: Introduction to KiteBoarding (4 hours)
At Kite Control, our students begin lessons on land with a 3 meter Trainer Kite at one of Long Island's most beautiful Kiteboarding Locations- Either Gilgo Beach Long Island Kiteboarding. Plum Beach Brooklyn Kiteboarding or Hamptons New York Long Island Kiteboarding. You'll learn to correctly setup the kiteboarding kite and will practice flying in and out of the powerzone, launching and landing, wind window, weather and more advanced, crucial ground theory. Further kite control mastery will be applied in Lesson 2. Time 1-2 hours
Lesson 2: Kite Control Body Drag
With the skills learned in the intro, you're ready to maneuver through the powerzone while dragging in the water. You'll practice body dragging upwind, launching the kite from the water, and self-rescue/self-landing skills. This is the phase where students develop and refine the necessary skills to become independent with the kite. Time 1-2 hours.
Lesson 3: Kiteboarding Water Start (DAY TWO, 4hrs)
After completing Lessons 1 & 2 or demonstrating your current skill level, you'll launch your kite and hit the water with board in tow. Your beach practice water starts will help you visualize what to do in the water and then actually start and ride. Expert feedback from Kite Control instructors allows students to maximize their time on the water in this intensive course. To become proficient as a Beginner Kiteboarder you might require more than a 1-day lesson. It takes time to master all the aspects of the course and getting up on a kiteboard could take 2-3 days of lessons. Time 3-5 hours.
