Chicago area-Learn to Snowkite
Interested in the sport of kite boarding. Im an instructor based out of the chicago area.
For those of you who dont know what snowkiteing is. It's bassically the same as snowboarding except you're powered by the wind. You use a "kite" for power that allows you to do 20+ or even 30+ foot jumps and land back down like a feather. You dont need mountains or even hills to snowkite all you need is wind. No more lift tickets.

Snow kiting is a much easier way to learn then on water. It is very rewarding, allot of fun, great workout and helps get you ready for next years water session. Kite boarding can be a dangerous sport, lessons are highly recommended.
Whether you're completely new to the sport of just want to polish up on some skills. I design each lesson on a personal basis.
All teaching is done one on one usually in 2 hour sets. I teach mainly up on Big Muskego which right now has about a 14 inch ice depth on the Wisconsin boarder but if conditions permit lessons can be scheduled anywhere, I provide transportation up to the spot.
