Perfect companion to real lessons.

The Beginner DVD is a perfect addition to real lessons. No matter how great the instructor, there will always be different ways to explain kiteboarding techniques. The instruction on this DVD is very clear and well-articulated, and sometimes just hearing a concept or idea in different words is what you need for it to "click".

During my very first lesson, my kiteboard instructor recommended the Beginner DVD from Progression. I wrote it down and downloaded it that night, and started watching it before coming back for my water lessons. Considering the high price of 1to1 or even 2to1 kiteboarding lessons, this is a very economical way to get additional instruction.

Each of the Beginning DVD lessons is very straightforward, and they point out common mistakes that students make. They sync up the explanations with slow-motion video of an actual kiter performing the moves. This makes it really easy to understand what to do the next time you are on the water.

I attribute several of my early break-through moments in kiteboarding (water-starts, going upwing...) to the instruction from this DVD. Highly recommended!

Good DVDs

This is without question a five star item! Progression is thorough to say the least, in this beginner 2nd edition everything you need to get yourself started in the sport of kiteboarding. I found after studying this movie i was more confident and informed on how to conduct myself at my local riding spots! Also a very vital aspect is rider right of way and manners ( this not only being a safety matter but a great way to not upset the more experienced and local riders! ) Definitely buy this if you are new to the sport or if you're just interested in taking a lesson!

Best Kiteboarding DVD

This is the best of the two DVD\'s I have viewed on the subject of Kiteboarding. Not only did it help me understand better how to fly the trainer kite but it also helped me to understand some of the problems that I may face when I take lessons next year. I would highly recommend this product to any beginning kiteboarder. After I take my first lesson I will be purchasing the next installment of the progression series.

DVD is essential to all beginners

This DVD is essential to all beginners thinking about kiteboarding. It is full of tips and techniques that you can watch over and over. I have learned something new that I missed before every time I watch. This DVD is also a great thing to watch before a instructed lesson and the Trainer is good for learning technique and control. I personally wish I got the 3m instead of the 2m but I am 210lbs. So if your under 190 lbs I would stick with the 2m.

comprehensive DVD

Watching this DVD is a great way to get introduced to the sport of kiteboarding and to learn more about it. I think pretty much every basic topic is covered. I am glad there is an emphasis on safety and understanding the wind.

The DVD could probably be updated to include more usage of the new SLE and Bow kites, especially in the self-launching aspect. Also Quinn, a 6-year old kite prodigy who I have been teaching, dozed off while watching it. The music and narrator should be more dramatic and captivating.

But if you need to brush up on a topic, you can just go right to the chapter that demonstrates it, I think the DVD is pretty comprehensive for the beginner level.
