If you want to learn kiteboarding, do it in Hood River and do it with Kite the Gorge! I could not have had a better experience with these guys. The location out on the Spit is the way to go for beginners. Super easy to walk down to the sandbar, free parking, and its sooo nice to be away from the crowds and distractions at the Event Site where the other schools are located. They use Slingshot Kites – a top notch local company that will be at the top of your list if/when you start buying your own gear. They use radio headsets for on the fly communication and jetskis for safety. Carlos, Brian, Marissa, and my instructor Kyle are all just straight up great people who are passionate about what they do. Kyle is a talented rider and a natural teacher. He tailored the lesson to my knowledge/ability/comfort level perfectly so I was able to progress faster than I ever thought possible. Didn’t want to set too high of expectations coming in, but I’d hoped to become a self-sufficient kiter by the end of my trip and have a good time through the process. Mission accomplished! Went out on my first solo ride yesterday and couldn’t be more psyched about this sport!

Best kite school ever! Wonderful owners, wonderful staff, and the most amazing instructors! I have come so far in my kiting and it is due to the expertise and patience of the my instructors (special shout out to Kyle!!!). When you learn at Kite the Gorge you become part of a lovely family who are so supportive and so excited to see and celebrate your progress. I cannot say enought great things about my experience with this school!

I am a board riding fanatic snow/wake/skate/surf and I slalom waterski. I always wanted to learn kiteboarding but I had heard it was dangerous and tough to learn. Thanks to Kite The Gorge I was able to gain confidence and proficiency in a matter of days. I booked multiple lessons on back to back days. I felt safe with professional instructors who explained every step of the process to me. They had radios built into the helmets and I got instant feedback and instruction as I flew the kite. Hunter and Kyle helped me in a kind and patient manner. They were rad dudes who have international Kiteboarding instructor certification and they make the experience super fun! After a few days I was riding upwind, and learned transitions both ways. I even made it across the river and back without crashing a few times. It was challenging, exhilarating, and educational. I booked another lesson in 2 weeks and I can’t wait go back!

Many thanks to Carlos, Spring, Kyle, Hunter and the entire Kite the Gorge team.

Carlos and Spring run a great kiting school. Instructors Danielle and David were patient and attentive and got me, a first timer, riding the kiteboard over the course of three days. A total blast!! Ample kind staff was there to help sort and maintain gear. Everyone wore masks and respected the COVID times. I will go back for more to put some more finesse into my new skill. Great job guys. Strongly recommend.

I was interested in learning how to Kitesail. I took four lessons with KTG. Both Danielle and Carlos did a nice job explaining rigging, safety, theory, and how to get up and go. With their instruction I was able to get water start and sail.

These guys rocks! The owners and instructors are really knowledgeable and friendly. Hunter was my instructor and was killer. Really positive and was able to break down exactly what I was doing and what I needed to be doing. I highly recommend and will be back myself to get better.

Learning to kite with Kite the Gorge this summer was, I have to say, one of the most fun and exhilarating experiences of my life.

I’ve always been a very timid person. When my husband and I decided to learn to kite last year, I was really just along for the ride. When we took our first lessons Memorial Day weekend, I left frustrated, scared (as I said, I’m a timid person) and ready to give up. But that was 100% on me. I had mentally prepared myself to fail.

Anyway, I didn’t. With the support of Carlos, Spring and Rhice I actually learned to kite - something I was beginning to think I couldn’t do. Rhice in particular was incredibly supportive and probably one of the best instructors I’ve ever had, for anything. Some people have a lot of knowledge, but completely lack the ability to teach. Rhice is not one of those people. She is incredibly knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. Her patience astounded me and I am so glad that Carlos and Spring paired me with her throughout.

But it wasn’t just them, either. All the instructors at the school are invested in every student’s success. For them, it seems, seeing every student learn to love the sport and become independent is a success. I don’t think I’ll every forget their cheers from the shore when I got my first real, controlled ride.

Now that I’m done with lessons, at least until I want help to work on something new, I can’t wait for my weekly trips to the Gorge and literally count down the days between them. This would not have happened had it not been for all the time Kite the Gorge invested in my learning, as well as their patience in helping me get over my lack of confidence and frustration.

Many thanks to everyone at Kite the Gorge! I’ll always remember this summer as one of the best ever and it wouldn’t have happened without them.

I give “Kite The Gorge” (KTG) my highest recommendation for anyone wanting to learn or progress in kiteboarding.

Great people, positive attitudes, good nearly new gear, wave-runners used if the student is ready to need that kind of support, very skilled and tuned-in instructors, excellent physical setting that is far more peaceful than the main “mad-house” event site, great advice on gear, riding locations and more, free parking, local roots (ie Hood River, Pacific Northwest) of nearly everyone there, bean bag chairs, shade, great communication/coordination over the phone, great respect for the schedule and punctuality, and general awesomeness.

If you want to get into kiteboarding, don’t overthink it, just come here and get some back to back lessons. Seriously, life is short, sign up for six lessons over three days (if you have the energy!) and you will be ripping it up when you’ve done that. If you are a fast learner, they will just push you farther – you will progress every minute you are with these awesome people! And they will sell you their nearly new gear for great prices, if you get hooked (which is highly likely, if you like fun on the water!).

I took two lessons with Cascade and basically stumbled onto KTG since Cascade had no openings. Windance recommended KTG, and I now see why. I was so impressed and stoked after two lessons with Hunter and then two with Sail. These guys set me up, and I am confidently riding now, doing transitions, a little toe side, almost ready for a little air.

I ended up taking four lessons with KTG, and buying four kites and two bar, getting tons of beta and stoke. I am so impressed – they deserve huge success for spreading the beautiful gospel of kiteboarding.

Thank you, Carlos, Spring, Hunter, Sail, Kristina, Kaya, and the rest of this awesome crew – you have given me a whole new fun universe to explore!

And give your instructor a generous tip if you agree.... I am sure you will.

Kite the Gorge really stands out from all the other kite schools in the gorge. They have their own spot right at the spit away from all the crowds. An added bonus to their location is the free parking. Carlos and Spring (owners of Kite the Gorge) are also some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. They’re legitimately invested in their students success and have created a supportive learning environment that makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive to your first lesson. All of their instructors are top notch — I took lessons with Rhice, Luke and Tanner. They all have their own unique teaching style which I found extremely helpful because I was able to hear things from a bit of a different perspective while I was struggling with my water starts. Sometimes it really helps to have the same thing explained in different ways.

Rhice was extremely patient and would stop and give me little side lessons on things as needed. She also explained things in a way that made it really easy for me to understand. She gave me a ton of confidence and made me want to keep trying even though I was getting really frustrated with myself. She’d constantly remind me of what I was doing right and provided constructive feedback on the things I needed to improve on. She provided me with really good examples which ultimately lead me to that “AHA!!!” moment where everything just fell into place. Even though I’m done with my lessons (at least until I’m ready for some more advanced stuff) she has been kind enough to give me a few off the clock pointers which is something I definitely do not take for granted.

Luke really got me excited about learning to kite board. He’d also test me throughout the lesson which really helped. He’d ask me about potential safety hazards or about the wind conditions — whether they’ve changed or if there’s anything that might signal that the conditions are about to change. Then he’d go into more detail after giving me a chance to analyze my own environment. Now I know how to predict changes in the conditions by looking at what’s happening upwind from me as well as a better understanding of the wind in general. I’m also very aware of what’s going on around me (potential environmental/human hazards) thanks to Luke.

Tanner helped answer a lot of questions I had about some things I was struggling with. I was having issues with sheeting in too much and overpowering myself on my water starts — lets just say I’m really comfortable with being waterboarded at this point. To compensate, he introduced me to what he called the “Jesus water start” where you pull yourself up out of the water by sheeting in with the kite at 12 and then doing a power stroke to get moving. This helped me get a better feel for getting up and riding before going back and trying a normal water start. Guess what? It totally worked! I was up and doing longer rides on my next lesson.

I have nothing but good things to say about Kite the Gorge. I’d recommend them to anybody who is interested in trying this awesome sport. Not only did they get me from having zero experience to being an independent rider, they also made me feel like I’m a part of the kiteboarding community.

Great vibe, knowledgeable staff, great beginner equiptment. These guys got me from not knowing how to do anything to riding in both directions and doing sliding turns on my third lesson! Highly recommended! Thanks Luke!
