If you're thinking of picking up kiteboarding, it is strongly recommended that you take lessons with a professional instructor. Kiteboarding is a dangerous sport. Taking lessons will familiarize you with the safety aspects of the sport and how your equipment works. Knowing this means a safer experience for yourself and those around you. An instructor can watch and recognize immediately what you are doing correctly, and incorrectly, and help you setup your gear safely and properly.
