Snowkiting, kitesurfing and windsurfing on Lake Champlain
Get ready for some fun on the water this summer...
Stormboarding is one of the first and longest-running certified and insured snowkiting schools in the US and the only kitesurfing/windsurfing school in Vermont/Upstate NY. We have a variety of activities, events and gear throughout the year.
Never kited or windsurfed, want to improve? Check out our Lessons page for details about getting going with the great sports of kiteboarding and windsurfing. We use all new and modern gear with state-of-the art teaching methods. Kitesurfing lessons happen in 2 parts: ground school followed by the water lesson (not necessarily on the same day) and for those wanting to windsurf, we will have you sailing on your own within a 2 hour intro lesson.
Need gear? We are all ready with excellent gear to help you maximize your time on the snow or water with kite gear from Peter Lynn, Ozone, HQ, Slingshot, Litewave and Dakine, stand up paddle gear from Oxbow and Bic and windsurfing gear from Chinook, Starboard, Bic, Gaastra, Aerotech, Exocet and Fiberspar.
We aim to help you make a gear decision that will give you the most fun in a way that works with your style and time. For used gear, our goal is to turn over school gear frequently giving you a chance to save some money on lightly used equipment while keeping our students on virtually new gear all the time. See the Gear Shop page for details on the above or check out our package pages: Snowkite Packagesor Windsurf/Stand-up Packages or just give Rachael a call to talk about your needs.
Thinking about gifts? Give the gift of FUN: gift certificates for lessons, adventures or gear are available any time of year. Along with lessons, check out Adventure Trips and Shipwreck Tours - unique, fun and affordable outings on Lake Champlain. Get out of the heat, have some adventure and learn and discover what Lake Champlain has to offer above and below the surface.
Thank you riders, partners and volunteers who made this year's Kitestorm one of the best. The Kitestorm is one of North America’s biggest and longest running snowkite events. For all the info and details about the weekend including race results, race photos and videos and photos from the whole weekend as well as results of the photo contest, check out the Kitestorm page.
Like a little challenge? The Stormboarding Snowkite Speed Ranking is a world-wide contest open to snowkiters of every ability and anywhere in the snowkiting world. Anyone with a GPS can get in on the action and win excellent prizes. Check out the rules, details and the incredible speeds on the Speed Ranking page. This will run through April with the final announcement made May 4th.
Stormboarding specializes in exciting, stand up watersports both summer and winter: snowkiting, stand up paddleboarding, windsurfing and kitesurfing with professional, fun and effective instruction, top of the line gear and well-run events all in an incredibly beautiful setting. We also feature custom lake adventures with the above sports plus options to just cruise and explore the lake or explore shipwrecks without getting wet through the eyes of a remotely operated camera.
Summer water sports are almost here. Kite ground lessons are on with selected dates in June with kitesurfing and windsurfing starting early July. Get practicing with a trainer kite or sort out your gear in time for the lake to warm up. Call or email: 802-578-6120
