Our Headquarters is located in the Emeryville Marina. From this location, we have access to the best wind conditions in the San Francisco Bay. After completing our Ground School, we use our waverunners to access the windy location for the day. Sometimes it can be the shallow water of Toll Plaza Beach, other times it could be near the famous Alcatraz! We rarely encounter days with no wind.
Sessions are held in 2-hour blocks. Ground Sessions can be completed with a friend (Max 2 students), but all Water Lessons are private. To receive the best results for your kiteboarding progress, you will need a coach’s complete attention.

- Rescheduling Due to Unfavorable Conditions (such as thunder, lightning, no wind, heavy rain, major equipment malfunctions, etc…) KGB Kiteboarding & Watersports may need to reschedule your session due to unfavorable conditions. This determination to reschedule is left to the discretion of the management, staff, and coaches of KGB Kiteboarding & Watersports. The decision will be based on current, live, and forecasted conditions, as well as other factors. KGB staff will inform you of any changes to your session at least 1 hour before your reservation time. If we make the decision to reschedule your session, management and you will find a mutually agreed upon date & time for the reschedule. If you cannot reschedule, KGB Kiteboarding & Watersports, reserves the right to issue you store credit.
- Cancellation Due to Unsafe Situation – Participating watersport in watersport activities requires one to have control of their full senses. We reserve the right to refuse our service and cancel a session to anyone we feel is not capable or comfortable to participate in the activity.
- Client Cancelation – Life can be hectic. We understand that people have busy schedules and at times need to reschedule or cancel a reserved session. We want to see you succeed in your goal! Please give us at least a 24-hour notice for your cancelation. This will allow time for another client to reserve your session. If you cancel with less than 24 hours from your reservation, a fee of 1 hour or $100 will be deducted from your account, whichever will be less.
- Client No Show – In the circumstance of a no show, a fee of $200 or your day’s session hours will be deducted from your account, whichever will be less. Totally not cool!
- If you show up late to your scheduled session, that time counts towards your session time. Please plan ahead and arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled session. Also, not cool!
- Session hours can be transferred to another person. Session hours and store credit do not expire. If your store balance is less than $10, you may redeem the remaining value for cash, upon your request.
