Kiteboarding, Snow kiting and Stand Up Paddle Lessons & Rentals
Do you love the water? We do and would love to get you out kiteboarding or stand up paddle boarding in a safe and professional manner.
Kiteboarding lessons are the first step in learing to ride with safety and confidence. They are not for everyone, only those with a true passion to learn the sport of kiteboarding.
Snow Kiting is the easy way into kteboarding with less power needed. A great way to spend the winter riding while getting dialed for your spring kiteboarding sessions. Some kiteboarding gear for snow kiting works in the water.
Stand Up Paddling board lessons are for most everyone. We have taught 72 year old Grandmothers down to 7 year old children. This is a safe, funfilled rewarding time with family and friends. MACkiteboarding can take large groups up to 12 people. So load up the car and head out for an amazing day on the water.
About MACkite Lessons Center
MACkite has been offering lessons for over 14 seasons, and we’re pumped for another season of teaching students the life-changing sport of kiteboarding! We offer all of our summer lessons at the MACshack, which is reserved specifically for our students. Our instructors teach hundreds of students every year on how to ride safely and to learn the undying love of kiteboarding. We hook up our students with the latest gear - after all, we are in the business of making kiteboarders!
In the fall, winter, and spring, students will enjoy their lessons in our indoor teaching area at our Board Sports Center at 217 South Beechtree Street in Grand Haven. During those cold sessions, we will instruct you the basics while you remain toasty in our shop, then we’ll throw you outside to practice what you’ve learned.
