Kiteboarding in Paradise

Kitebaording/kitesurfing first started in Maui Hawaii in 1998

The first kites where hand sewn , 200 kites for kite surfing where made and 200 kiteboarders from all over the world where made shortly after.

That was nearly 10 years ago and now there are over 500 thousand kiteboarders world wide.

The Bahamas is known to be one of the best places in the world to learn to kiteboard and to kiteboard with it’s shallow warm water and great trade winds, offer a incredible experience and adventure for all levels of kiteboarders. Beginners to advanced riders.

From flat water riding to crisp clean virgin Atlantic waves,

With IKO instructors and the newest safest teaching methods on the latest gear, this is the place to learn the extreme sport of kiteboarding “Safely”.

The water temp is 70 deg all year round a bit warmer in summer.

The kiting season really kicks off around end of September when the trade wind changes from ESE to ENE average wind speeds in winter are 15 to 20 kts.

The teaching areas are shallow warm clean water uncrowned and off the well trodden path…not only do we offer kiteboarding lessons we offer adventure and lifestyle.

Gday well I was a sailor for a few years that met a girl in the Bahamas and came back to visit her , got married 3 months later and that was 10 years and 3 kids ago. A lot has happened from then to now. How does the kite boarding fit into this? Well a few years ago my friend Capt Ben Gillard ,hooked me up with an old naish kite and a hammer direction board and said here ya go. And I haven’t looked back since. anyways I have been developing kite boarding in the Bahamas for a few years now.(a learning exp) AJ Watson
