Chicagokiteboarder New Rider  KITE CAMP.

Chicago or the Midwest is a great place to kiteboard but not a place for learning. I used to teach in Chicago but have for a while now stopped teaching due to the difficulty with planning lessons secondary to the fickle weather conditions and very choppy water conditions. Chicago and the mid-west is a great place to kite when you already know what you are doing but not when you are learning.

Chicagokiteboarder’s New Rider KITE CAMP is designed for persons “seriously” interested in getting into the sport of kitesurfing/kiteboarding. There is no BETTER and SAFER way to learn this sport then to immerse yourself in it while supported by perfect conditions and highly trained “pro” instructors. This camp is guaranteed to make the person with absolutely no kiting experience into an independent kiteboarder.

Upon completion of the camp, the rider is expected to have upwind riding skills, if not riding upwind will at least be at the cusp of riding upwind. Become a fully independent rider and have an entry-level PASA certification card.
