      Why Take Lessons

A good coach will save you from possible injury and probable embarrassment.
Besides saving face and your butt, here are 7 other reasons to take lessons:

1 Demolish the Learning Curve.
Sure you're a wakeboarder/surfer/
snowboarder/ballerina, but that doesn't mean you can fly a kite.
A good instructor will help you use what you've learned from other sports,
drastically reducing the learning curve.

2 Save Serious Coin. Lessons save time and money. Without the right-size kite,
you will end up trashing your gear.
Schools have many different sizes and styles of kites,
so why not learn on and trash their gear instead?

3 Guidance. Instructors know about all the latest gear and will share tips
that would have taken you months to discover.
Plus, most have been on the scene since day one, so they can also i
ntroduce you to all the local kiters.

4 Protection.
Not knowing what you're doing flying a kite can put others

in harm's way and might even hurt you.
Not to mention that injuring others is not a great way to impress the local kiters.

5 Stress-Free Shopping.
A good instructor will know the perfect kite and board

for your weight, size and style,
saving you hours of frustration.  And they might even be able to cut you a deal

on your first purchase.

6. Plan for the Future. Once you complete a lesson and are up and riding,
you'll get all the info about where to kite,
when the wind blows, where the good spots are and where to launch from.

7. It's Fun. Lessons get you outside in the water for a great, active day
without the worrying about not knowing what to do,
plus you get to become part of a culture that's a lot of fun to be around.
