Attraction details
Owner description: Our school offers high quality kitesurfing and windsurfing tuition with IKO certified instructors (International Kitesurfing Organization) with the latest and safest equipment. We are located in Nonsuch Bay, on the windward shore of Antigua, where the trade winds blow strong and constant. The bay is completely closed by the reef and offers a condition of warm and flat water, ideal to learn and progress. Updated equipment, newest teaching methods and power boat assistance make the best combination for your perfect learning experience. 
The kitesurfing lessons will start from the beach of Green Island, a tiny island windward to Nonsuch bay, with white sand and crystal blue water; a perfect landing/launching area for kites.

Just come back from a week at Nonsuch, where myself and my daughter did some kite-surfing lessons with these folks. As you might expect, the 40 Knots people are passionate about their kite-surfing. Just as significant though is they are also all really nice people and will make your experience fun, exciting and a complete joy, no matter how good... More

My husband did a private 2 hour lesson. Marco was excellent in a tricky, low wind, technical day. He loved that the instructor is in a chase boat giving instructions and advice the entire time. He felt the lesson, money and time spent were a good value. The resort is beautiful and serene. I could have stayed and enjoyed the... More

I spent two weeks at Nonsuch Bay kiting with 40 knots. The team here are total professionals, and the location is superb. The service is ideal, and I found the setup cannot be beat as the instructors are super quick to rescue you whenever needed as they assist alongside in their boats.I cannot say enough good things, and will definitely...

Nonsuch Bay is the idyllic location for kitesurfing and 40Knots offers the highest level of instruction, solid equipment, and excellent service. Very friendly and extremely helpful would characterize all of my interactions with the staff. Learning water starts whilst your instructor is right there beside you in a boat is a huge help and makes for very efficient, safe and... More

While at Nonsuch Bay, we decided to get a trial windsurf lesson for my 4 year old son. His first experience was so amazing that we booked him for another 5 lessons. The instructors were patient, yet keen to push him forward. The team (Max, Chris and Susi) are just the nicest people you will ever meet - very good... More

Every single interaction with 40Knots, from booking through my last lesson was professional, friendly, accommodating - exemplary of what every business should strive to be. Most importantly, these are people who love the sport and whose passion for teaching is obvious and genuine. Bravo!! During the course of 5 lessons, I had three experienced instructors - all of whom had... More

This is a first rate outfit. Very helpful staff , great instructors (Claudio and Johan especially) and good kit. Very good with safety and when we had a bad day because of the kite getting tangled ( sometimes unavoidable) Susan sorted us out a free replacement lesson. Thanks all. We'll be back . Ian
