IKO Kiteboarding Lessons Holmes Point Park

HOLMES POINT PARK, Ontario, on the South East side of Lake Simcoe is another amazing little shallow, soft and sandy launch spot, great for beginner lessons.  And, bonus, Holmes Point is only a little more than an hour from Toronto!


IKO Kiteboarding Lessons At Holmes Point Park

The park can be used for setting up kites.  But, there is no beach, so we must drift launch from out in the lake.  Go out 50m and then drift launch your kite with safety.  Even with another kiter assisting, beginners should not try launching and landing next to the trees, as this is dangerous, and can lead to injury.  Every year we see kites ripped by the trees.

Being warm, shallow, flat and generously spacious with waist deep water for quite a distance out into the lake, Holmes Point Park is a great spot to learn how to kite in Ontario – and two full days of instruction is probably sufficient to get any student up and riding on the kite and board.  For this reason, Holmes Point Park is a preferred location for your IKO levels 1 & 2 instruction when taking lessons with We Love Kiteboarding.

Lots of space for everyone to zone out, find flow, and focus on their own kite progression for that day.

The drive from Toronto to Holmes Point Park takes a little more than one hour.
