Kiteboarding is now the fastest growing sport in Massachusetts and New England. You have probably seen kitesurfing at Pleasure Bay in Boston, on Revere or Nahant Beach, in Cape Cod, or on your local beach. If you are like me you knew right away this was the sport for you. As with any action sport kiteboarding can be dangerous and SHOULD NOT be attempted without proper lessons and gear. With the best prices, an experienced and dedicated instructor, and being just minutes from Boston, New England Kite School is the best bet to be kiting safely and soon.
Although kiteboarding is a relatively safe sport there is still an inherent risk of injury as with any sport. These risks can be almost completely avoided through proper training, decision making, and preparation. We follow a teaching model designed by PASA, the Professional Air Sports Association, the nationally recognized organization for kiteboarding in the United States.
At New England Kite School our ultimate goal is to keep Kiteboarding in Massachusetts a safe and positive activity for everyone at the beach. There are many aspects that go into a successful kiteboarding session. Having the right size kite with reliable performance and safety features is key to a good time on the water. When you finish your time with New England Kite School you will have all the knowledge you need to have a fun and safe time on the water, and make proper decisions when choosing your kitesurfing gear.
More about New England Kite School
Our main mission is getting you into kiteboarding safely. We teach and ride on our local beaches and know the spots in and out. Revere Beach is just steps away from the Wonderland T stop making it very accessible for the whole Boston area even without a car. Nahant Long Beach is another great spot and offers a mile long beach for water sports enthusiasts. Dog Beach, located between Long Beach and Short Beach is facing West, making it the only safe spot on the Boston North Shore for westerly wind conditions. Going out at Dog Beach is only advisable a few hours around low tide.
“Lessons through the New England Kite School were very well organized and designed to get you riding in the quickest and safest way possible. The instructor was available whenever the wind conditions allowed for a lesson and always focused on giving constructive and productive instruction to get the students riding to the best of their ability. In the few short weeks that I attended lessons with Benny I saw my kiting skills develop and gained the confidence to ride on my own. To anyone who wants to get up and riding, I highly recommend New England Kite School. They make the learning experience as easy as it could be and a whole lot of fun.”
