WHAT IS BACKCOUNTRY GUIDE?

Backcountry Guide is Next Level Watersports’ service to take our clients on epic adventures - the best part of kiting. We offer three different formats: Preplanned group trips, customized trips where our clients bring us with them to the destination of their choice (Offsite Coaching), and ad-hoc trips where we take clients on local downwinders and adventures.


Upcoming Trips

Every year we plan group trips in the spring & fall between our seasons in New England and Florida. These trips are catered, guarantee adventure, and will let you learn new tricks and techniques amongst the best coaches and good company in an incredible location.

Check Back Soon for New Events!

SURGICAL STRIKE CLUB

What is the Surgical Strike Club? We love riding big winds and big waves and it is easy to get to our locations from most major metropolitan areas. We maintain a list of like-minded clients so that, when the conditions align, we can reach out in advance of the weather window and let you know that good times are incoming. We'll help you resolve lodging, book a last minute flight, and get here in time to grab the goods for the ultimate strike mission with surgical precision.

You buy a LIFT eFoil to do crazy stuff with your friends and go on adventures into the back country.  That’s just what we did on this day with our good friend and client, Carl. This is the story.

The St. Lucie River is the main tributary that allows Lake Okeechobee in Florida to drain into the ocean to the East flowing through Stuart, and out of the St. Lucie Inlet.  West of Stuart, the St. Lucie splits into a South Fork and a North Fork. We have explored the South Fork previously, on this day we decided to go north.
