Bill made learning something that is inherently intimidating as flying powerful kites, as easy as riding a bicycle. His equipment is in fantastic shape, and using a chase boat and radio helmets, really maximized my learning experience. I would recommend him to anyone, novice to experienced to learn from.

TripAdvisor is a great app to learn about places and activities based on the experiences of others, and to register your own experiences. I would like to be able to edit my posts to correct typos, but that does not seem to be possible.

Our 3 teenagers wanted to try paddle boarding. We scheduled a morning lesson at Chenay Bay and within 15 minutes, all three were up and doing great. We returned for a second visit later in our week and there was a significant increase in their ability and confidence even after only 2 lessons. Bill is an exceptional instructor and really... More

My husband and 10 year old son took paddle boarding lessons at Chenay Bay and loved it. They paddled all over the calm waters and saw starfish and sea turtles. They also went out on kayaks and had a great time. I was able to snorkel with my younger son so we were all together. Chenay Bay is a good... More

We had been wanting to try Paddleboarding for quite some time before we moved to St. Croix. We came across Bill Kraft while lunching at Chenay Bay (great fish tacos, by the way!), before we were aware of his sterling reputation. Bill is the consummate professional, and has been so accommodating, guiding us throw lessons, and the different types of... More

My second trip to St Croix to learn with Bill. Had wasted plenty of time and money on lessons with lesser instructors. Bill is patient, has a great system for teaching with his boat and headset which ensures you will get plenty of water starts. The location and water conditions are absolutely perfect. If the wind cooperates you couldn't ask... More

I visited St. Croix the first week of February 2015, while visiting the island I wanted to try paddle boarding for the first time. I was concerned because we had rough waters over the last couple days. When I booked, they had me meet at Cheney Bay, which the waters were much calmer in this bay. When I arrived I... More

First time trying stand up paddleboarding. Wasn't sure what to expect. It was so much fun! Jillian was a terrific instructor and had us standing up in just a few minutes. Her tips were helpful and she was so encouraging. I would encourage everyone to check out Kite St.Croix, best ever.

Ive had several lessons kiteboarding and Bill is by far the best! He's a great teacher and gives you a lot of attention without overdoing it and a ton of experience. If you wanna kiteboard this is the place and the person to learn from. Im under the impression that there paddleboard experiences are just as good. GO SEE BILL... More
