Your first experience Kiteboarding is one of the most important in your Kiteboarding career. Many newcomers will decide on their first day kiteboarding whether this is the right sport for them or not. Much depends on the experiences that you will have in the first few hours or even minutes. At Action Sports Maui we know how important your first kiteboarding lesson is, and we do our very best to give you a safe, fun and empowering experience.

When trying kiteboarding for the first time we will start you on the trainer kites on the land to get all your steering skills, we call this ground school. The Trainer kites are not exactly like the kites you flew as a kid. They are mini-versions of the traction kites you will be using, to give you the simulator effect to learn the skills you will be using in the water later.

Maui winds are a combination of prevailing winds, trades, konas and storms, combined with local wind effects caused by Maui’s geography. The wind on Maui will be very specific to different areas. The wind on one side of the island can be blowing in the opposite direction from the wind on the other side. Depending on the activity you have planned, you may be seeking out the windiest spot, or trying to shelter from the wind for a surf session or picnic.
