Desperate to find some fellow kiteboarders in Corolla, I signed up for an introductory kite clinic. I planned on briefly swinging by, taking some numbers and figuring out when other people would be hitting the water. I had taken several lessons elsewhere before and didn't...More

Corolla kiteboarding is more than a lesson. They are a great resource for consulting before you buy gear and they’ll make sure you don’t act or look like a kook on the water. I can’t say enough about Stephen and his ability to instruct. I...More

If you're considering kiteboarding, Corrola is the place! Corolla Kiteboarding covered it all: safety, equipment, kite control, all the way to a first ride. The location is perfect, shallow flat waters with great wind. This is a can't miss experience.

I've been threatening to check this out for years, and should have started sooner! In three hours, you go from theory, to practicing the fundamentals with the training kite, then to the big kite in the water, and finally the board. The waist-deep sound is...More

Being new to kiteboarding, we got a thorough ground training before heading out on the water. After about 10 minutes, a storm was clearly headed our way and we all bailed in a hurry. Despite the lesson being more than half over, were offered a...More

My kiting skill took a quantum leap today. Steven was very helpful in a number of areas: basic safety considerations, set up, boat launching, starting, riding upwind, and transitions. I had really been struggling with starts and today finally felt like I am getting there!...More
