About 40knots - kiteboarding, wing surfing school
Our school offers high-quality kitesurfing and wing foiling in Antigua. We offer 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, in the Caribbean, 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 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.

Max and company are EPIC. Max is a gifted instructor: super patient, and pays close attention to what one should do to progress faster. I've kited since 1998 and we basically taught ourselves then, so it was my first lesson in a sport since....snowboarding in the '90's? It felt weird to be the student, but Max et al were super professional and super thorough. Everything about the school and the instruction is extremely well thought out, right down to making sure that the student is properly hydrated. I came back to California and was up on a smaller board my first tack out. Thanks Max!!!!!

I have taken a few kiteboarding lessons from them in the past but this year Max corniced me to try foiling and said he'd get me up and going in the first 2 hours which is exactly what happened. Now I'm addicted to foiling and love it. I would highly recommend 40 knots to everyone.

Wow what a morning. Thank you to the team @ 40knots for the efficient organisation, collecting me by boat, fast set up of equipment and we were out kiting off the beautiful green Island. Luca my instructor was brilliant and has given me the confidence to start enjoying kiting again and had me jumping straight away. Private lessons with an instructor in a boat really is the fastest way to learn. Thanks 40knots keep up the good work.

40knots is the best place to learn how to kite board. The location is the ideal spot. They will pick you up in a boat and take you out to a private island where most of the time you have the water to yourself. The method they use is the best I've ever seen. The instructor will follow right behind you in the boat and can give you tips the whole time you are riding. You also can just keep going downwind for an hour or more since the training area is so huge and then they just put you in the boat and run you back up wind. No more riding for 1 min and then walking back up the beach for 20 mins and never having to worry about getting blown out or in trouble. You instructor and your safety net is never far away. I progressed so much faster then any other place I have gone. A big part of that might of been because of my instructor (Isabella). She is amazing. I can't wait to go back again. A big Thank you to Max and his whole team. Especially Isabella. Thanks Anthony

We are currently sailing around the world in our little old sailboat, and this was one of our favourite experiences in recent memory! I'd had a couple of brief attempts at kiting in the past in other locations, but here with 40knots was the first time I've the basics taught properly. Me and my partner were both riding on the board within the first couple of sessions! We couldn't believe it! The location is perfect. A barrier reef protects the kiting area from swell and the consistent winds arrive clean from the sea. The water is warm and the sun is usually shining. If you happen to be sailboat cruiser, you can actually anchor within rowing distance of the school. The instruction was excellent, completely personalised, and a lot of fun! We have met several of the team during our time here and they are all incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and humble. All in all, this must be one of the best places in the world to learn kiteboarding or wing surfing. When we leave Antigua we'll take an exciting new skill with us, big smiles, and memories of this place to last a lifetime. Thanks 40knots!
