Becky Peet Our full time instructor spends half her year in the snow and the other half at the beach. Becky started kiting as a kid on the frozen lakes of Minnesota where she already sailed and snowboarded. She has coached high level sailing and snowboarding since 2006 and now enjoys the combination of the two sports through teaching kite boarding.

During the summer months, Becky teaches kite boarding in Hawaii. There she enjoys playing in the waves with her kite surf set up and mingling with the abundance of global travelers. As a certified sailboat race coach, Becky has a high level of wind awareness and gear tuning importance. She won the Midwest Junior Olympics in dinghies.

Once winter rolls around, Becky heads East towards the Colorado rockies, where she teaches snowboarding and skiing at Breckenridge Ski Resort in addition to snow kiting for us, Colorado Kite Force. With a background in wilderness medicine she is fully equipped to deal with the surprises that can come with the winter elements. Her depth in board/ski awareness from snow

teaching adds to her knowledge of sliding while under the pull of a kite.
