Ride Along

The Kite Lesson (TKL) takes great pride in having introduced many people to the fun and satisfaction of learning to kiteboard over the past 15 years.  Learning to kiteboard at Jetty Island is an amazing experience with great conditions.  Seen as both a negative and a positive are the logistical hurdles it takes to make use of this kiting spot. 

To get the most out of Jetty Island a rider must monitor the data on Wind, Tides and Currents.  Because of this TKL started offering a ride along program., This program is designed to bridge the gap between private lessons and complete independence and to also provide easy access for those that don’t want to navigate getting to and from Jetty Island.  

A ride along client will have already taken lessons and been taught all the skills needed to be independent, but still wants to be under the watchful eye of the TKL team.  We are now offering the opportunity to take advantage of new products which are detailed below.

The ride along program has become so popular we are now offering offering it in three formats.  The single day Ride Along, the Free Ride Pass and an annual pass called the High Flyers Pass.  All offer the same day to day experience but the Ride Along Pass and High Flyers Pass include several perks and benefits that the single day pass does not.
