Kiteboarding may look intimidating but it is a great sport for anyone who loves the water, a good challenge, and connecting with other ocean enthusiasts. As a certified International Kiteboarding Organization instructor, Betsy designs lessons around each individual’s abilities and aspirations.
I learned to kite at age 13 and have taught students as young as 7 and as old as 65. Each lesson includes all the kiteboarding and safety equipment needed. Each lesson is unique and tailored to the skill level, learning style, and comfort level of the student(s). It is important for you to know that kiteboarding has a progressive learning curve involving multiple steps before you are ready to ride, taking a series of lessons to gain proficiency in the sport. Kiting is healthy exercise, but more importantly it will bring you into the present moment, build your confidence, and create meaningful connection with other ocean-minded people seeking to live their best lives.
I currently teach lessons in Beaufort and Wrightsville Beach North Carolina. I create custom packages designed for clients based on the number of people, amount of gear, and hours of lessons they would like to book. I happily work with clients outside of the listed locations that want to learn to kite with me and build in travel costs dependent on location into the pricing of the custom package. Getting more people out on the water is a life goal and I am always happy to work with students to make learning the sport accessible through trade and scholarship opportunities.
