We teach kiting because we love it! And we enjoy sharing it with others since we know how amazing the feeling is to be able to do it. Kiting is basically the combination of surfing, sailing, windsurfing, wake boarding, skydiving, paragliding, and snowboarding all action-packed in one sport!
I could not imagine a better kitesurfing instructor than Jared at Maui Kitesurfing School! Not being particularly experienced with watersports - only tubing and waterskiing on lakes as a kid - Jared made me feel safe and confident throughout my lessons, from beach to ocean. Jared is very hands on in every step of the process and has impeccable communication skills, making the difficult steps of kite surfing come with ease and enjoyment. He described to me that he teaches each new student as if they are his younger sister - I completely agree with this statement - Jared is compassionate, friendly, comforting, and a constant stream of positive reinforcement.

They are kind, encouraging, friendly, and fun. I learned a lot and was able to execute my first real self rescue, and felt comfortable with all elements of basic kiting. Jared and William were particularly great, and made me feel more calm and in control. You learn everything you'll need to know -it was great fun, not only to learn but to spend time with the instructors! I felt really taken care of, and can't wait to go back. They catered to my style and fears, and gave me a LOT of time in the water (versus other places where you have to take the same rigging lesson over and over again. Once you have it down, you go out!)
My husband and I had an AMAZING experience taking kiteboarding lessons for the first time with Maui Kitesurfing School (aka Kiting.com). They have a truck parked out by the beach with all the equipment, which means you don't have to make any stops beforehand like with other schools and when conditions or preferences change -- everything they need is handy. This was critical since we changed equipment, kites, etc. multiple times to get the right fit and power for changing wind conditions. On top of all this, MKS had the best rates and were the most responsive and flexible of all the companies we contacted, which was important since we were working around nanny scheduling as well.
