Skyhigh Kiteboarding is Martha's Vineyard's premier Kiteboarding school and a world renowned kiteboarding destination experience!
Wind & Location
Frequent and consistent wind from every direction is what makes Martha's Vineyard kitable over 200+ days of the year. We operate every windy day May through October and are on standby ready to go when the wind's up! Even the best locations in the world are subject to mother nature, but we are blessed with the most frequent wind in New England! We operate in the same region as the CapeWind site which has been data proven to be the most valuable offshore wind energy resource in the USA! Martha's Vineyard is also home of the NASSI event in 2011 where Kiteboarder Speed Sailors broke the 50 knot barrier which is the fastest speed set in the USA! We travel by boat to find world-class kiting locations perfect for beginners or the seasoned pro seeking an unforgettable kiting experience.
We operate aboard our custom Ribcraft Kiteboat. When you enroll in any of our lessons & tours you are also embarking on a boat charter. We seek out the best conditions only accessible by boat and carry a full quiver of the latest gear onboard. If the wind picks up or drops we can easily switch a kite or board to keep you riding. We launch & land kites directly off the boat saving time and promoting safety. You practice in real time conditions, not just in the confines of shallow water. Learn to stay upwind while practicing downwinders, while the boat brings you back upwind with your kite in the air saving valuable time during your lessons. This is our difference! We make you learn what it takes to be a kiteboarder in real conditions!
