Beginners are encouraged to invest signifant time reading on the
web and watching training videos for a less frustrating learning
curve on the Beach. Our mailing list will alert you to wind
conditions and upcoming trips.
Most trips include some R&R time in the destination beach spot.
Kitesurf for the day and relax in the evening over a few beers
before flying back to Boston (usually Sunday night). Space is very
limited at 2-3 people per weekend, so first-come-first-serve. Non
