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.

Bill Kraft is by far the best instructor I've ever met. He taught my friends to learn in just a few hours. He teaches you on a boat with a radio so you learn much faster because he's walking you through every move and you're in the water learning. Most kite schools takes ages to get you in the water...

Visited STX in March and had two kite boarding lessons with Bill Kraft, a team member of Best Kiteboarding. Bill is a true pro, incredibly laid back and patient with beginners. He offers a three-day intro course which includes one two-hour land lesson, another two hours bodysurfing in the water the next day (or getting up on the board if... More

The setting is incredible with good winds, beautiful waters and accessability. Bill Kraft runs a professional instructional program that is safe and personalized. I took 5 days of lessons and improved my boarding skills exponentially. My son also took lessons and loved working with Bill. This will be an annual trip for me.

In my opinion, kiteboarding is the most awesome sport for anyone, young or old. It's totally addictive. What's more, I think Bill is the most awesome instructor. I didn't actually take lessons from him as I've been kiting several years now and went there for a beautiful, warm place to kite, but I spoke with those taking lessons, saw what... More
