I have been teaching kiteboarding since 2013 and helped over 90 people start their adventure in kiteboarding. Before 2013, I have taught snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding, rock climbing, and mt biking. In the winter I am a winter sports guide and the summer an outdoor guide. I am a certified Kiteboarding Instructor and local of the area. I know all the special spots and rules.

Keep these in mind
Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 6 guests aged 12 and up can attend.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
The wind can be loud, so hearing protection and safety glasses could enhance the experience. I will likely have them for you if you choose. A towel should be brought if you plan on going in the water.
