If you're looking for a kiteboarding lesson this is the place to go! If you're trying to decide, stop what you're doing and go with these guys! My wife and I were in town and the first day or two it was really rainy but they worked with our schedule and we ended up having a great time and experience.... More

Very easy access to expert kiteboarders. Easy 10 minute ride on pontoon boat to sandbar island and shallows where my instructor took me through all of the steps to learn how to board. Richard was an awesome instructor who had patience and clearly loved what he was doing. I would highly recommend Blown Kiteboarding to the newbie and or experienced... More

Learned to kiteboard with Mike. Tons of fun, great instruction, great learning conditions. You can walk in the sound where Mike teaches lessons, and the water is warm-ish (very comfortable in 3.2 wetsuits in may). Couldn't imagine a better place to learn (we've attempted 3 or 4 other places in the country and nothing compares).

I had a great lesson at Blown Kiteboarding. Where I live along the coast of NC, there is not a great spot to comfortably learn the sport. I was attracted to Blown Kiteboarding because of the shallow sound and consistent wind, and I left speaking even more highly about the instruction. It makes a tremendous difference being able to touch... More

I had never kiteboarded before - my brother and dad recommended this place. These guys were so nice - Scott was patient and did an excellent job of explaining the gear, getting me to practice, trouble-shooting, encouraging, and emphasizing safety. There was a radio system so I could hear him from a distance. It felt like a good progression throughout... More

I have been involved with Blown Kiteboarding for the last two years and have seen a lot of students become proficient riders as a result of the excellent instruction that Blown offers. Also this is absolutely the best teaching location in the area with shallow water for miles allowing the beginner to stand up and recover as they are learning... More

I took a kiteboarding lesson a few years ago in Michigan and struggled with it since.I wasn't able to put it all together and actually ride upwind. I booked one lesson with Michael at Blown Kiteboarding and became a kiteboarder. With the helmet radios and Michael following along in the Bloontoon I had a coach right with me on a... More

I called last minute to schedule a kiteboard lesson. Michael was more than accommodating to get me in the water quickly. He is very thoughtful and careful instructor, with good equipment and an almost perfect spot for teaching. We ended up cutting the lesson short due to wind dying out, but I will be back for more.
