About Me

Hello,
My name is Joe.  I’ve been kiteboarding since 2001 and introducing new and enthusiastic kiters for the last six years!
I’ve always had a love for active sports like skiing, surfing, biking, but for my money, nothing can beat the exhilaration of kiteboarding.

Kiteboarding can be challenging to learn, but I am confident I can have you kiting on your own within 2 sessions.  I am a patient instructor and also know the techniques and small adjustments that will make all the difference.

I received my IKO certification to teach kiteboarding from David Dorn in Maui.

I have certified first aid training, as well as boaters safety certification with the Oregon Marine board.

Please take a look at some of my customers’ feedback.  I hope you will contact me to discuss what I can do to help you experience the thrill of kiteboarding for yourself!

This past summer I started foil boarding which is quite exciting! With a kite hydro foil, you actually float a couple of feet above the water. It is the closest feeling to flying you can get with kiting (well except for jumping of course!). The feeling is more like riding down the snow covered mountain making snowboard turns on a fresh powder day! I utilize new state of the art foil boards that were designed with the beginner foil boarder in mind. I can help you progress with on the water coaching while assisting with my jet ski, making your progression quick and efficient. Take a spin with Joe the kiter before you invest in a new foilboard to make sure it’s for you!

If you would like to learn how to kiteboard, foilboard or just find out more about it, please feel free to send me an email!
