If booking less than 24 hours before the lesson you must Call the shop to get on the schedule!

We will call you the day before the lesson to confirm the weather is forecasted for good conditions for a productive lesson or if we need to reschedule for another day.

Week day's are often less booked, sometimes you may even be the only student! So, we recommend week day lessons if you're hoping to get more time with the instructor at group price, though not guaranteed. 

Do not show up to the lesson without having confirmed with us over the phone. 

Here at Houston Kiteboarding we provide you with a safe environment and all the gear you will need to learn to kiteboard.  Our designated learning area allows you to stand in waist-deep water, which combined with smooth winds off the Gulf of Mexico, make for a very easy place to progress your Kiteboarding skills. Whether it’s your first time out or you’re working on your next skill; our instructors will show you the ropes and give you exercises/experience based on your skill level to take you to the next level.

The first lesson, we recommend 3 hrs and it is focused solely on the kite. You want to be able to control the kite with your eyes closed while splashing through the water, and know exactly what is happening with the kite. This typically takes 2-3 hrs, sometimes longer. Once you're completely comfortable with the kite and no longer crashing it at all, you're ready for lesson #2.  It's better to go extra long without the board, than to prematurely add the board and get frustrated trying to learn too many things at once.  

Lesson #2 is another 3 hour course (2 hr minimum) and is focused on the board, we will be using the kite skills we mastered in lesson one to get up and ride on the board.  After day 2 you will be getting up to some degree and taking short rides.  Lesson 2 is very skill dependent so some clients get up and ride quickly and others take more time.  We will go at your pace and move to more advanced items like edging and riding upwind if you're progressing fast.  If you need more time we will help you along and make sure you get comfortable with the water start and your transition up on the board and riding. 

Lesson #3 is working on ride consistency so getting up both directions and riding to a stop then transitioning.  For some, it will be skills like edge control and up-wind riding. Again, lesson three is very skill dependent and we will go at your pace/skill level. 

More or less lessons may be required depending on the individual and each instructor can give you their opinion.  Our job is to get you through to kiteboarding as quickly and safely as possible while having fun on the water, because that is what it is all about!

After lessons many clients may do supervised rental or up-wind services to bridge the gap between full supervision/instruction and solo riding. 

GROUP - $110/Hr per person 

In a group course you will be with up to 2 other clients.  In most situations there will be a few group activities and exercises, but much of the lesson clients will be on their own individual kite.  Our focus for group instruction is self sufficiency, so many skills and exercises are completed by clients on their own, after an instructor introduction and demonstration we call this “self discovery mode”.  So, these lessons are a mix of instructor input and self discovery working on skills solo with a kite and getting feedback and guidance from the instructor. After your group lesson you are encouraged to keep practicing for as long as you like with our equipment for $50/hr as a rental.  This option is only open to clients who choose the group instruction path and can only be done directly after taking a lesson.    

PRIVATE - $150/Hr

Private Instruction consists of you and a experienced instructor for the duration of your session.  This means consistent advice and feedback for your whole time you’re on the water, resulting in maximum learning and progression.  This is great for clients with specific needs or those looking for a more feedback.  

After Lesson Rental - $50/hr

This rate applies to the hours after a lesson if you choose to stay out on the gear to continue practicing on your own, without updated exercises and feedback from the instructors.  The “After Lesson Rental” is only valid for clients who have taken at least 2 hours or group instruction the same day as the rental period. These hrs can be purchased on site.
