We understand that snowkiting can look a bit intimidating and that lessons are quite a big commitment of time and money. That’s why we offer a taster session to people who are interested in learning how to snowkite. Graykite’s beginners snowkiting lesson is ideal for people who think snowkiting looks fun but aren’t 100% sure they want to make a big commitment yet.

If you do want to learn, all you need to do is turn up with some warm clothes – ski or snowboarding gear is ideal – and we’ll provide everything else. You’ll get an explanation of the wind window, an introduction to safety procedures, learn how a power kite works, then learn to fly a trainer kite. Next you’ll get a taste of a bigger foil and or leading edge inflatable kite, the types of kites we use for kite snowboarding. Depending on how fast you progress, we might even get you on the board in your first couple of hours.

Our taster course is a quick, safe and enjoyable way to find out if snowkiting is for you. We hope you’ll come away from your lesson with a love for the sport we care about so much. And if you do, we hope you keep up the lessons and learn to ride free as the wind!
