Who is 405KITE?

I am an avid kiteboarder who’s intent is to safely share the ‘stoke’ and knowledge of this incredible sport with those wishing to learn. I have a regular full time job, and I give lessons on a part-time basis usually on evenings and weekends when the wind is appropriate.

405KITE, LLC lessons are lead by one of the only PASA certified instructors in Oklahoma City, whose ultimate goal is to help create independent and safe kiteboarders. An experienced instructor will have knowledge, patience, and an ability to communicate. Each of these is essential to a safe learning environment. Our water course lessons also include a waterproof radio helmet and boat support for instructor to student communication.

Save yourself and innocent bystanders from possible kite incidents. Save time and money by learning faster and buying the right gear. And save your new found friendship with other local kiteboarders by knowing the courtesy rules. Make the RIGHT choice.

What is Kiteboarding?

Kite Boarding

Kiteboarding or kitesurfing is likened to snow boarding or skate boarding on water, only using a kite powered strictly by the wind as your “engine” or power source.

Many people use the words kiteboarding, kite boarding, kite-boarding, kitesurfing, kite surfing and kite-surfing interchangeably. We generally refer to kiteboarding as flat water riding, and kitesurfing as ocean wave riding.

Why Should I Take Kiteboarding Lessons?

First and foremost, safety for yourself and the public. Being connected to a kite controlled by Mother Nature is inherently risky. The powerful kites used in kiteboarding are very dangerous in the hands of a person lacking proper instruction. Most people don’t realize just how much power a kite can generate. Many potential kiters who try to teach themselves or learn from friends end up quitting due to lack of thorough instruction and adequate safety.

Proper instruction gives you a better chance of sticking with the sport. Kiteboarding lessons may seem expensive at first, but kites and their accompanying gear cost even more. Beginner kiters can innocently thrash the gear they learn on so why not use the instructor’s equipment instead? Taking lessons will also allow you to progress faster beyond beginners gear. And when you’re ready to buy, you can jump into the intermediate gear faster.

What is PASA?

The Professional Air Sports Association (PASA) is a nonprofit member driven association that is dedicated to promoting and preserving the Kiteboarding industry. Kiteboarding instructors can be easy to find, but a great one, well, they can be much harder to find. This is why PASA started their instructor certification program. They wanted to take the guess work out of choosing a kiteboarding instructor, and have developed a certification system and extensive training system that produces quality certified instructors. PASA Levels of Kiteboarding Certification of recreational kiteboarders establishes a measurable level of skills obtained under the PASA guidelines. Each certification level means the kiteboarder has accomplished the skills criteria for that particular level. More will be discussed about PASA certification during your lessons.
