Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of lessons does Prokite offer?

PROKITE offers personalized kiteboarding, foil and wing lessons for all levels and styles of riders. Choose from 1 on 1 private lessons, or group lessons with your friends and family. In addition to water-based riding lessons, we offer land-based activities and lessons (including an introductory course, kids lessons, and advanced lessons). On a no-wind day, join us for wakeboarding and riding practice, waverunner bay tours, dune buggying, and more.


How do I book lessons?

Call or email us at any time in order to reserve a spot on our schedule. Choose from pay-as-you-go sessions (no deposit required) or pre-pay with an 8 or 12-hour lesson package to save. (Please see below for details on our cancellation policy)

How long are the lessons?

Typically 2-3 hours, which we consider plenty for a productive and rewarding session. Most lessons are billed at a minimum of 2 hours, except for the Pro Clinics  which are 1/2 hour minimum and Kids Lessons which are 1 hour minimum. It is common for clients on vacation to plan for multiple sessions in one day, with a break in between.

Please note: Lesson time will only be pro-rated when lesson can not be completed due to wind or weather. Because light wind skills are imperative to kiteboarding, PROKITE operates on the principle that if there is enough wind to relaunch the kite, there is is enough wind to have a rewarding and productive kiteboarding experience.

What time do lessons start?

Lessons often begin at 10:30am, 1pm, 330pm and 530pm (awesome sunset sessions in summer), but are subject to adjustment based on wind and weather conditions.  PROKITE sends morning windcheck text messages to clients on our schedule to confirm or adjust start times as necessary. Let us know if you’re on a tight schedule, and we’ll do our best to accomodate you. 

Tip: be a few minutes early to gear-up, sunblock-up, or wetsuit-up, so we can get the kite up right away!

Where do the lessons take place?

As of spring 2020, most lessons are now meeting at the Prokite shop and departing with coach on waverunner from there.

What should I bring?

Plan to arrive beach and water ready with towel, sun protection, swimwear, sunglasses and water. 

We provide all of the highest-quality kiteboarding gear you’ll need. Let us know in advance if you’d like to rent a wetsuit (sometimes necessary during the cooler months). In case you forget something, the Prokite Shop is stocked year-round with men’s, women’s and kid’s wetsuits, waterwear, sun protection gear, and wind layers.

What should I wear?

Booties are recommended for beginners (comfortable, high-quality booties are available for sale in the Prokite shop). Our kiting locations are quite foot friendly, but it is possible for beginners to put their feet down a lot and to incur small cuts from seashells or to be distracted by the bay floor, which is composed mostly of sandy patches and soft seagrass. 

Clothing Temperatures vary throughout the year. From early May through mid October, air and water temperatures are very warm- sun protection is your main focus. November through April, air and water temperatures can fluctuate from week to week. For fall and winter trips, bring a full-length midweight wetsuit (3/2mm or 4/3mm). December and January bring the most cold weather days, but even in mid-winter we enjoy some warm days and don’t always need a fullsuit. The PROKITE kite shop is always fully stocked with warm, cool and cold weather gear, including fullsuits and springsuits, kiting jackets and windbreakers, and neoprene accessories. Fullsuits are also available to rent.

What if I need to re-schedule?

We are happy to reschedule your lessons at no charge, however we ask that you notify us as soon as possible, so that we can sufficiently accommodate our instructors and other clients. 

What is Prokite’s cancellation policy?

Non-package reservations require no deposit and cancellations can be made at any time and do not incur a cancellation fee. However, we ask that you notify us as soon as possible in the event that you need to cancel or re-schedule your lessons. 

All package reservations require payment in-full at time of booking. In order to recieve a full refund, cancellation must be requested no later than 10 days prior to package start date, in which case package will be refunded in full with no cancellation fee, no questions asked. If cancellation is requested within the 10-day window prior to package start date, full credit is issued, and can be applied towards either future lesson reservations or the purchase of gear. There are no hidden fees, no penalty for incomplete or re-scheduled hours, nor is there an expiration date for any credit issued. Upon cancellation within the 10-day window, you are not required to reserve future dates until ready to do so.
