How it works

Lessons are tailored to suit your individual goals and abilities. Have previous experience? - We build on what you already know. Brand new to the sport? - We take you though step-by-step in a safe, fun and easy manner.  Lessons INCLUDE all equipment and your awesome LEK coach.

How much will it cost?

$71 USD per hour is the starting rate.  Take 10 hours and the hourly rate is only $63 USD per hour.

You don't need to decide right now how many hours to take, we take it day by day to see your progression and the hourly rate is assigned at the end of your visit once you've accumulated all your hours and discounts.

Private lessons are recommended unless you have someone or a few people you really want to learn with.

Remember - the lessons include the gear!

We bill differently to save you money

We are precise: only charging for the time you spend with your coach and equipment. We bill to 5 minute increments.  If you spend 1 hour and 40 minutes then we only bill you for that.

I was a beginner kiteboarder with some experience 2-3 years ago. After training with a great instructor, LEK school sold me some inexpensive, used gear that I could use and not have to rent. I appreciate that they stick to one type of kite, so that I could both get used to the feel of this kite and now own the same kite. They were very practical and fair in their pricing, and helpful throughout the entire week. I will be returning soon as I'm sure there are very few places in the world with such consistent wind and great service!
