Ryan took my kiteboarding to the next level. I was able to dial in my upwind tack, learn advanced safety tips, and get to the point where I could be independent. I had several coaches in the past, but they didn't explain things as well as Ryan did. I highly recommend him!
Look no further when choosing a shop for learning to kiteboard! My wife and I both had the pleasure of working with Ryan in our greener days of kiting and we learned invaluable lessons from him that I haven't seen other shops instruct. Ryan definitely takes the time to ensure you fully understand how kites fly, board handling and most importantly, what to do when you find yourself in a challenging situation. We are both better kiters because of Try Kiting, Thank You!!
Ryan is awesome.He taught my 14 year old son and now he's shredding with me. Would highly recommend.
I spent this past weekend with Ryan and Emmitt learning how to kiteboarding with two buddies. Ryan and Emmitt were super kind, friendly, and great coaches. I didn’t think I needed lessons but my two buds had been kiteboarding previously and said that lessons would be critical to me having fun. They were definitely correct on that. I would give these guys SIX starts if I could. We had a blast! My number one concern was safety and Ryan and emmitt made sure we were always safe!
Try Kiting is hands down the best outfit I have been with for learning how to Kiteboard. Ryan and Emmitt are game changers. They way they engage and communicate with you is at a higher level. Myself and several buddies of mine recently went to South Padre Island and met up with the guys at Try Kiting and half of the group had never kiteboarded before and the other had rode in the past, just not that well. By the end of the three days and honestly by the end of day 2 we were all riding at the same level. I can tell you after taken lessons all over the country from Hood River, So Cal, Jacksonville Fl, and from all different instructors these guys are the real deal. Kiteboarding is a sport that is all about safety and I have never felt in danger in all the times I have been out on the water with either Ryan or Emmitt (even when we where in storm wind conditions). Honestly getting instruction and hanging out with Ryan and Emmitt have made me a better not only kiteboarder but a better overall person 😉 Thanks again guys, your da best!!!
I have done both purchasing gear, and full lessons through TryKiting and It was one of the best choices ever made. Ryan is incredibly professional and sold...
