Feel the rush and excitement that only a full sized kite can provide.

This two hour hit the water lesson with Kite Republic is broken up into two parts, the first hour consists of the Kite Pilot techniques on land, then in the second hour it is time to get wet. From the safety of the water you will learn powered body drags, how to re-launch your kite and self-rescue techniques. Your goal is safe, confident control in the water.
