Improving your skills with kiteboarding lessons in Newport Rhode Island

NewportRIWhether a beginner or an experienced kiteboarder, you should take the opportunity to perfect riding skills with a professional instructor.

There are two schools that offer kiteboarding lessons in Newport RI: Sky KiteSurfing School and Real kiteboaring Northeast. At Sky Kitesurfing (SKS) a training for beginners starts with kite-handling lessons on land. Then you continue the lessons on water, get some experience and work on details. You pay from $150 to $385 per lesson. You may use the school equipment or just bring your own.

Real kiteboarding Northeast organizes lessons on all levels, from beginner to pro. However, advanced riders must book the lesson earlier to make sure that appropriate coach will be available.
