5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I took a lesson today and it was awesome. My instructor was excellent, very patient, and very helpful. She had me riding for 2 hours while following me on a waverunner to provide suggestions. I highly recommend this place. Tony

Thanks Brian. Once you are a student of SPI Kiteboarding, you become one of our extended family.
We really enjoy watching our former students progress in this awesome sport. We are one big kiteboarding family here on SPI :)

“The real deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

I never took their kiteboarding lessons but in my 4 week-long trips there. I saw them teach, I spoke to them, and they fixed my kites. They are an institution there, knowing everything there is to know about the sport, the location, the weather patterns, you name it. Plus, they are in one of the best places in the world to learn the sport.

“Wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

You can ride on a kite either two or three people. It is fun to do early in the morning and you land on the boat. FUN, FUN, FUN.
