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

The Island has a reef surrounding it, so it makes a perfect spot to kite board and stand up paddle in protected waters and Bill Kraft is amazing at teaching!! He got us up kiting in no time and we had the absolute best time of her lives!

I went to Kite St. Croix for a paddle boarding lesson and rental. $45 might seem a bit much at first glance however, it is well worth the money. They stayed with me till I was able to stand up, paddle, and felt comfortable doing it in my own. I was able to spend as much time as I wanted... More

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
