Kiteboarding Lessons 101:

Welcome to the Midwest's first and largest Kiteboarding School and Kitesurf Shop. We at MACkite are thrilled to teach you, your family, and your friends one of the greatest new sports on earth. Our lessons and camps run all year long to give you the best opportunity to learn this incredible sport.

Our lessons fill up fast so we strongly suggest that you reserve your spot early. While it may be possible to get a last minute lesson, we cannot guarantee instructor availability without prior reservations. Also, in order to receive your instructional DVD and pamphlet ahead of time, you must reserve the lesson at least 2 weeks in advance.

Kiteboarding Lesson Requirements

We have a minimum weight requirement of 80 lbs for our lessons. If you're under 18 years old, we will need a parent or legal guardian to co-sign the waiver. You will need to be able to run and swim (You will be wearing flotation devices.)

We highly recommend spending time with a trainer kite prior to the lesson. See our First Steps page.


Call 1-800-622-4655 to book your spot now. Open 7 days a week!
We require payment in full at the time of your reservation, so please have a credit card handy. 

No Wind?

We will go over everything else that you need to know for kiteboarding such as wind directions and safety, kite setup, and the basics of launching and landing kite as well as self rescue. We will give you an in store credit for any unused portion of your lesson.

Cancellation/Rescheduling Policy

You may cancel your lesson or camp up to 10 days prior to the camp with a full refund. Any lessons not cancelled at least 10 days in advance will be charged $100. Any lessons rescheduled within 10 days of the lesson will incur a $50 charge. Please remember that we have only so many spaces available and that a cancellation forces us to lose a spot. Thank you for being considerate in this matter.

If you have any more questions, feel free to call or email us at any time. Remember, if you don't start this year, you will still be just watching next year, wishing you were on the water with us.
