The Kiteboarding School of Maui was founded in 1999. The school pairs students one on one with highly trained and enthusiastic coaches to provide a fast and safe learning environment. In 2007, Forbestraveler.com selected this as one of the top ten adventures in Hawaii. The school is certified with the International Kiteboarding Organization, and is one of the first schools in the United States to be certified.
The school has developed a three tier program, which caters to students at all ability levels.
The beginner level is set up to introduce basic kite control and safety to the student. During this section of training, students will learn to determine the safety of weather conditions, how to set up the kite with assistance, how to use basic safety equipment, as well as how to launch and control the kite while walking and changing directions.
