We are Anguilla’s one and only Kiteboarding Academy, and we spare no effort in providing the ultimate kitesurfing experience.
Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced kite surfer, our pro team will help you reach your goals so that you can enjoy the sport in a safe and exciting way.
We use the latest kiteboarding gear, uphold stringent safety guidelines, are respectful of the environment, and provide excellent instruction using a step-by-step approach so that you learn how to ride both quickly and safely.
Anguilla has the perfect beaches and ideal weather conditions for learning how to kiteboard. The wind’s always up somewhere!
Our mission is to get you kiting quickly and safely. Based on our experience, an average person needs 8 to 10 hours of kiting instruction in order to experience the thrill of the first solo ride.
Beginners choose our ZERO TO HERO program which includes a block of 8 hours of kiteboarding lessons at a discounted rate of $1,600 instead of $2,000. The block of hours can be broken up into a minimum of 2 hours at a time but recommended to get as much time in daily to maximize your progression.
