Recently me and my son took 2-3hour lessons. Although i knew it was going to be challenging it was even harder than i thought and even after 6 hours my feet never touched the board. As a reasonably fit 62yo snowboarder i thought i would have a shot but clearly i needed more time as did my 21yo son. I... More

My 13 year old wanted to try Kite Surfing, but hadn't done anything like this before. While walking on the beach, a kite surfer we met recommended 15 Knots and their Tandem lesson. He had a BLAST! Juan Carlos explained everything to him, and with the tandem my son was able to experience going fast and even jumping. We were... More

I took two lessons with Jon Davies in early August and had a great experience. Jon was a great teacher and it was obvious that he was interested in me learning. He customized the lesson to fit my needs, and took some extra time with me at the end to ensure I had it down. Safety was also a priority... More

My family was in San Juan for 3 days prior to taking a cruise. We went to 15 Knots just to check them out, as my son and I have been taking lessons in North Carolina. Luckily they were able to give us lessons at that time. They even took my teenage daughters out for a tandem ride, I didn't... More

I took a 4 hour lesson with Jon Davies. The quality of the lesson and the Cabrinha gear I rode were top notch! Everyone I spoke to was so friendly and helpful. I felt a connection with Jon and owner Juan Carlos. The radio helmet I wore allowed Jon to speak to me while I was riding solo. I felt... More

I can't say enough good things about 15 Knots Kiteboarding School.

Within 5 hours I was up on the board! 15 Knots can provide you with the kiteboarding experience you're looking for -- whether it... More
