Triton Kiteboarding is a Kiteboarding organization located in St. Petersburg, Florida. We work in association with the Eckerd College Kiteboarding Club to create safe, and accessible atmosphere into the sport of Kiteboarding and its culture. Our instructors are IKO and PASA certified. We provide qualified instruction to people within or visiting the St. Petersburg/ Tampa area. Due to the Pinellas’ peninsula unique geography, we can teach in any wind direction.
We offer discounted lessons for Eckerd students and upon completion of our curriculum, they have the opportunity to join Triton’s competitive team.
Eckerd faculty, alumni, and families are eligible for discounted lessons as are Military, Law enforcement and City/ State officals. These discounts are also available for students of other college sand high school students.
Since our beginning in late ’05 we have gotten dozens of Eckerd Students into this sport. Several Triton team riders competed in record breaking races and We’ve hosted several competitions including the first Collegiate Championship in 2007. This year we founded the Collegiate Kiteboarding Association and have hosted a series of intercollegiate competitions, bringing together riders from schools across the southeast.
Our school has a full range of gear from top kite brands such as Cabrinha, Slingshot and Naish. We offere lessons on C--Shaped Kites as well as Bow and SLE designs.
