Experienced a great professionally guided afternoon of kiting with 2 people (father/son). Both of us had never kited before, but thanks to Ryan's good instruction, we made our first kiteboard meters in the first lesson. It is a nice combination to book 3 hours for 2 people so that you can see each other and learn from each other. Ryan looked at the progress and immediately adjusted the follow-up so that we made rapid progress. Thanks for this new experience.

Took the Independent Plus Course. Came in with some previous experience but not a lot. They worked my previous experience into their course. Completed the course in eight hours instead of the 15. Bring this up because the cost ended up being less, which is always nice. Never felt like they were trying to stretch the lessons out. Evaluated ability and moved on. Sonny is a great instructor. I admit I was pretty frustrated at the end of the first day (kiting in the ocean is more challenging than the lakes back home) but he was really positive. At the end of each day he predicted where I would be at the end of the next day. And he was spot on. He is super competent with the kite, the instruction, and boat operator skills. If new to kiting on the ocean, I strongly recommend booking a lesson or two, if for no other reason to know that you have a boat and instructor keeping an eye on you as you learn to navigate offshore winds. Certainly put my wife at ease knowing that Sonny was looking out for me. I progressed more in four two-hour lessons than I would in months of kiting on my own, maybe years. Great experience all the way around. Cheers

We had two lessons with Kiteboarding Bonaire. Israel, who arranged for our booking was friendly, relaxed and helpful and Ryan our instructor was fantastic. Ryan’s approach to kitesurfing was slightly different to the other lessons that we have experienced but it made it a lot simpler and easier for us. He first spent some time with us on the beach explaining his concepts and then took us through some exercises to allow us to feel what we had to be doing. Out on the water he kept it very simple and we got up and running (relatively!) easily for the very first time! Ryan was relaxed and easy going, and really knew what he was doing. He total control of both the boat and the kite.
