I've been wanting to try kiteboarding for a long time now, and I couldn't be happier with my first experience. Bill was an excellent instructor. I learned so much in just two days! Can't wait to go back and try it again!

I have been windsurfing before and always wanted to try kiteboarding. I am glad I waited until I got here to St. Croix. Bill is an amazing teacher. Very patient, very experienced and a very nice guy. If you ever want to try kitesurfing, Bill is the right man for you to get you going. Ferdinand

I learned to kiteboard in the SF Bay Area and have worked with a few different instructors some better than others. But I progressed the fastest and had the most fun with Bill. Kiting in idyllic St. Croix with its trade winds, warm waters, and the reef-protected flat water definitely contributed to the experience. However, it was Bill's patience and... More

The highlight of my trip! I've always wanted to learn to kiteboard and I'm so glad I waited till I got to St. Croix. As soon as I got on the island I called to set up an appointment. Bill has this awesome set up and knows what he is doing. He patiently instructed me through a walkie talkie attached... More

I had heard Bill Kraft was a great kitesurfing teacher so I went for a vacation with my family so as to take lessons and get a family vacation at the same time. I do confirm that Bill is an excellent teacher. I went there for a specific type of lesson (learn how to use a directional surf board) and... More

Bill was a great teacher and I had a great time learning with my son. My son took right to it and they both coached me until I got it. I really appreciated Bill's time and attention. Beautiful location, great sport, great teacher.

Visited St Croix on vacation and took a couple additional kite boarding lessons from Bill Kraft at Kite St Croix. Bill was a patient teacher and got me to a point where I can kite board independently. If you intend to give kiteboarding a go, Bill is a great choice to help you learn, I was his only student, he...

Bill was an amazing teacher! I could only fit two lessons into my trip, but they were well worth it.
