Attraction details
Type: Water sports, Adventure
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.

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

I felt that my instructor was excited as I was... More

Popped in to see the guys at 40 knots on the off chance of being able to rent some gear and have a session whilst on holiday with family. Everyone was super helpful, I was out on the water straight away with really good equipment and re-assuring environment and equipment checks. The location is beautiful and it's nice to have... More

Let me keep it simple: This team scores top marks across the board. Started with a taster session. Extended to a 3 day course. And bought MORE. Thanks 40Knots. You got me going in sooo many ways. Kitesurfing Rocks. You rock. And I'll be back. Don't mock it until you've flown it guys!

Our seven-year old son had 10 days' windsurfing lessons and made amazing progress in that time. All credit to Chris, Susie and Jamal, who are fantastic teachers and lovely people. Don't hesitate.
