This my 4th time at School, there Christmas '2020 as could fly safely from Manila. The essence of what makes it a great place to windsurf/kite, + lessons is alive and well, the gear, the location for launching but most of all the staff under Simone's direction. I am windsurfer and even though new boards Simone keeps some older ones for those of us that like it old school - one day started with 78ltr/4.2, all rigged and waiting for me and when sail / board changes needed already anticipated by Gido waiting for me at the beach. He second generation in his family windsurfing. Low wind days great opportunity to learn Kite boarding from Alex! IF YOU CAN get there this season GO GO GO - Cannot stress how magical it is to be on the water in that sort of wind with only one other windsurfer & 10 kites, white beach not mobbed on the otherside if your partner not join you on the water. If you find yourself already on the Island - get lessons in the low wind as its the type of conditions that are outstanding for learning to kite surf and world class instruction! Anyway - not overselling just wanting anybody that HAS the opportunity to take advantage as I have no doubt crowds will return as the conditions that make it one of the best places in the world ain't going away & the School has found a way to keep all of its essentials in the face of truly criminal "rehabilitation" wrought on the beach.

The best place to learn kitesurfing in Boracay. I had really a good time there. I had many days lesson with my instructor Aleks. He was really patient 😃 After the first lesson I decided to spend all my holidays learning a kite :) This school is very professional and trustable. Management is really friendly, flexible and pleasant. I highly recommend this place and all the staff :) We will come back to Funbord Center Boracay and I can't wait to meet everyone there once ❤️ The food at school was really delicious, especially the bread, they bake it themselves. All the people smiled sweetly and kindly! It was Amazing experience at Funbard ❤️ If you want to feel at home, come here and you will not be disappointed ❤️ I'm happy and wish you the best of luck 🌊🌪️😘

Boracay Bulabog beach remains a great place to go kitesurfing. The bay is big so all kite surfers have enough space to enjoy the clear waters. Out of the 14 days spent here there were at least 12 days were the wind was perfect for my range of ozone kites 8 - 10 -12. The beach crew at the Funboard center is amazing. They help setting up your gear, launching / landing, clearing up and giving advice on which kite to use or what time to go out with the tides. Help you out where ever they can and they even fixed my kite with a valve problem, super fast and with expertise. All you have to do is enjoy the wind and go Kitesurfing😄. A big thanks to Simone and the rest of the Funboard center Boracay for a great time at your lovely kitesurfing place. Hope to see you again sometime in the future. The infrastructure at Bulabog beach and the rest of the island are not great at the moment. At different parts of the island lot of work is being done to fix roads, remove buildings and fix the islands long term problems. But when enjoying your kitesurfing, the beach at white beach and your holiday this isn’t a problem at all. It’s still a beautiful and amazing place. And the work being done will just make it even better.

I did basic kitesurfing course 3 years ago in other location and after the course I have surfed 5-6 times only. I didn't feel comfortable enough and then I just have dumped surfing for almost 3 years but always have dreamed to surf again it was always on my mind to get to proper kite school and to continue my training with proper instructor and this is what has happened to me in Funboard school with my instructor Elena. From the first meeting it was pleasant to interact, all the time during the course I felt absolutely safe (and I'm little bit obsessed with safety) and made good progress with skills. Elena's attitude was relaxing and assuring, she new exactly when to take control and when to give me more independency in order to build my confidence. During the course I have realized how much of skills and knowledge I was lacking from the previous training. As a result I feel confident enough to enter the water by myself to keep mastering my new skills and this is what I already did the next day after the course completion! Good condition and large selection of equipment, during a week of surfing I had had a chance to use different kite sizes, from 7 meters to 12. I would like to thank separately Simone the owner, she was very welcoming and gave me useful tips. Definitely will come back.

Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to watch your amazing progress on the water. Riding toe-sides and carving into a jibe is more than just a confidant rider: getting playful and keenly experimental towards the next level!! Have a great season back home and we hope to see you back on the island very soon! Best wishes, Simone & Team
