  • instructors will wear masks or buff s and maintain social distance during lessons
  • we recommend students wear masks or buffs during land lessons
  • mutual instructor and student hand sanitizing before lessons

After you have graduated to independent rider, you receive deeply discounted deals on gear rentals and purchase. All of our students also receive 10% off everything in our on-site store.

When is the best time of year to take kiteboarding lessons?

ExotiKite Kiteboarding School is open November 1st-April 10th. The wind generally blows almost everyday during our winter season at and average of 18-22 knts.

Can I buy gear directly from ExotiKite?
Absolutely! We carry the best brands on the market including North and Cabrinha. We also sell ION wetsuits and harnesses, Dakine products, Firewire and North Pacific kite surfboards. After you have finished your lessons with ExotiKite, we will put together a package price for lessons and rentals/purchase, taking a percentage of your lesson price and applying it towards equipment.  We can also dropship to anywhere in the United States.
Do I have to make a reservation or can I just show up?

It is best to make a reservation, although, we can normally schedule you within a few days if you decide to drop in. Our busiest season is Dec 15th – Feb 1st. During this period you will want to reserve ahead of time.

Is there a cancellation policy?
Please understand that making a reservation with ExotiKite Kiteboarding School is a commitment for us to hold a space for you on your scheduled date and time. That space can rarely be filled without advanced notice. For these reasons we request that in the event you need to cancel, you give us 48 hours notice. If you do not give us advance notice we will assess a late fee totaling 50% of the lesson price.
What if there is no wind during my lesson?

We only charge you for the lessons you take. If there is no wind during your scheduled lessons you will not be charged. If you pay in advance and do not finish your lessons, due to weather, your money will be refunded for the hours you did not take.
