Peconic Water Sports offers lessons to learn how to kiteboard.

CUTCHOGUE - Want some adventure for your family this summer? Why not try kiteboarding on the East End? News 12’s Doug Geed takes us to Cutchogue where Peconic Water Sports shows us how to fly a kite AND surf!

The first step in learning how to kiteboard is to learn to fly a training kite, says Joey Flotteron, of Peconic Water Sports. According to Flotteron, it generally takes anywhere from five to 10 hours to learn how to kiteboard, even if they’ve never done it before.

But kiteboarding is not just fun and adventurous. It’s a workout, says Dominic Cannistra, of Peconic Water Sports.

“You’ve been out there a good 15, 20 minutes – that’s a great workout … You’re working out your whole body,” says Cannistra.

Cannistra adds that it’s also a great stress reliever to fly above the water with the kite.
