Hello, My name is Emmet Sproul, I live in Breckenridge Colorado. I'm a snow and water kiter and have been kiting since I was 9. We do a lot of snowkiting where I live. I travel to Maui with my family to kite there also. I think that kiting is a great family and kids sport.
I would love to see and help more kids and familys start kiting. Its a great way to spend family time together and a super fun sport to learn. Learning to kite on the snow is a great way to begin kiting.
I work and train with Colorado Kiteforce on Lake Dillon. We have a special program for Middle and Highschool kids who would like to learn to kite. Any Middle or Highschool student qualifies for a FREE snowkite introductory lesson on an Ozone trainer kite. Contact me at Colorado Kiteforce and schedule your lesson this winter. If you wish to continue on to extended lessons, purchasing kites, or renting kites after lessons, we have prices just for Middle and Highschool students.
I love to compete on snow and water and like racing the most. My favorite type of kiting is on my strapless surfboard in the waves with a Reo. I also realy love to snowkite.
Kiting is a lot like skiing. Its a great sport to learn and do together as a family. You dont have to be super rad or extreme to have fun. It's a ton of fun do together even on any level. Once you learn, you can do it together on snow and water everywhere.
I encourage all the kids and familys who have been thinking about learning to kite to GO FOR IT!
