I have been going to Isla Verde for Kitesurfing and the quality of the spot, the shop and overall, the people is fantastic!!! I usually get back there 2-3 times per month and highly recommend it either for learning or just chilling in a very cool ambiance!!!

If your in San Juan you owe it to yourself to check out 15 knots kiteboarding school. Kiteboarding is one of the most thrilling and fun sports a person can do. You get a set of wings that allows you to hover and fly over the water. Its a sense of freedom nothing alike. The instructor's are all very professional... More

We are staying in a VRBO rental about 2 blocks from 15 Knots. Very convenient. 15 Knots has been very accommodating with rental gear. I rode one of their 15m Cabrinha Contras 2 days ago, it was probably my best session ever.

Kiteboarding looks exiting and simple...then again the later comes with good lessons and practice. 15 knots takes good care of the lessons side. They have good instructors, safety oriented, good equipment and good rates. If you are in PR...this is a must do!
