Get Out on the Water

Nantucket is a kiteboarder’s dream. The shallow waters of Nantucket Harbor are the ideal setting for perfecting your kiteboarding skills or trying the sport for the first time. Nantucket now boasts the first ever, town-approved kiteboarding school, founded in 2016 by Jon Beery and Jake Hoefler.

Jon, Jake, and their staff at Next Level Watersports offer daily private, semi-private, and multi-day kiteboarding lessons and instructions and also provide training. Participants can choose from a variety of three-hour lesson stages from beginner level to advanced. They also specialize in kite camps for those who want to dedicate more time to perfecting their skills. In addition, Next Level Watersports also features wakeboarding instruction, as well as hydrofoiling, and tubing excursions so you can experience the most exciting watersports’ activities that Nantucket has to offer.

For more information on Next Level Watersports, or to schedule a lesson, visit the Next Level website. For more background details about Jon and Jake, check out the article about them on Nantucket Magazine’s website.

Chef Philip Sireci believes that cooking and music share a lot in common, and he has the experience to back his theory up. Before finding his way to the kitchen, Chef Sireci worked as an audio engineer and a guitarist with aspirations to be the next Eric Clapton. “Creating menus that satisfy a person’s five senses is like composing a song. Cooking and music require similar cadence of creativity”. Chef Sireci comes to us from New York City where he led the kitchen at @fineandrarenyc and @theflatironroom. He lands on Nantucket alongside his wife Marla and their adorable dog, Mona Lisa. ...
