About Us

Welcome to KITE415 and thank you for checking us out!

The kite school is run by Tony Parsons who has over 20 years of kiting experience and has been teaching for the last 10 years throughout the world.

KITE415 is the first IKO certified kiteboarding center in San Francisco. Boasting some of the best kiteboarding instructors in the world, our staff is trained and registered with both the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) as well as the Professional Air Sports Association (PASA).

KITE415’s objectives are to reduce the level of frustration associated with learning how to kiteboard and to accelerate your proficiency. We achieve these goals by tailoring lessons to individual needs. We offer one-on-one instruction for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. As a result, KITE415 students become independent kiteboarders quickly and safely, and advanced students take their skills to an entirely new level. Whether you want to pick up the fundamentals of kiteboarding, refine your kiteboarding performance, or learn to kitesurf big waves, KITE415 has the kiteboarding lesson for you!

Our staff and instructors look forward to working with you to make this experience a safe and fun one. Discover your kiteboarding passion!

Tony Parsons – Head instructor

Growing up in Northern California with a lifelong love for boardsports, everything surf, skate & snow, it was only natural that when he first saw kiteboarding one day on the coast in Santa Cruz he knew he had to try it… From that moment forward, many years have passed and life has never been the same.
