Kiteboard Lessons near Sandbanks?


I will be camping at Sandbanks from August 9th until August 15th, 2014. I have had two lessons and have just bought some new gear.

I don't know Sandbanks at all and have not tried my new equipment yet. Thought another lesson might be in order. Does anyone have contact info for someone who teaches in that neck of the woods and might be available next week if the wind comes up?

Hi Andy,

Not sure of anyone who gives lessons around Sandbanks. If you do decide to ride, check out the spot desciption at Ontario Kite Spots.

It's pretty busy at Outlet Beach during the summer so you have to make sure you ride at the more Northern "Sandbanks Beach". If there's good wind there will likely be other riders there to help launch and land you.

Thanks! I tried Ben @ Westlake but he doesn't start teaching until September.

I have a launcher/lander or two coming along on the trip. Fingers crossed the wind picks up!

good luck Andy. Maybe some kiters who are there for the wind that day will give you some pointers.
Lots of people in Kingston are looking for lessons. How can they get in touch with Ben @ Westlake to book something for sept? thanks!
