We did 2 x stand up paddle trips with them - one at creek the other was a snorkelling and sup at the open sea.

This place is very professionally managed - the owners and staff are friendly, knowledgeable, equipment are well maintained and they are punctual.

They are not pushy - we were first looking at snorkeling boat trip and they gave contacts but we switched to doing sup to the coral reefs with them on day 2 as we liked their service

We will be back for kite surf lessons another time
Highly recommended

We used Tribe for water skiing and SUP with dolphins. Great service - guides who know what they are doing and understand good service. Would recommend using Tribe for all Watersports activities - these guys are the only player in town !

my daughter (12) just finished three kitesurf lessons with Max. Punctual, fun, safe and lessons that actually got her standing briefly after lesson two! Max was fun and accommodating and pushed my daughter to explore her limits and beyond. She was exhausted but always motivated to be back the next day. Dealing with Ben for reservations, arrangements and time slots was very easy and very professional. Most surf and Kitesurf places have this unprofessional macho aura around them, not those guys, it's a highly professional, cool and safe team to train teens and adults alike.

What a great way to start the day in Watamu. I rented a ski boat for my girlfriend and myself. The boat can take up to 7 pax. We had all the toys onboard from tubes , ski’s and wake boards. We met our skipper Marco at Mida Creek next to the Dhows. The boat and equipment are all excellent.
Marco did a great job of pulling us out of the water on every piece of equipment. Marco runs SUPKOS in Greece during the summer months.
Thanks TRIBE TEAM great day great experience.

Took a SUP to the corals, was my first time doing the SUP, tribe team and especially Manu were excellent. The whole experience was so much fun, instructions were helpful and encouraging. The coral reef is gorgeous, we even saw stingray and a starfish. Will definitely return, incredible activity to do alone or as a group!

I really enjoyed learning with Ben, the location is beautiful, the team is friendly and the price right. My only issue is that Ben was really busy with other clients so he cut my course, I only got 6 hours over 3 days and never got to the board. I only suggest you clarify your expectations and you make sure you get what you pay for!

My daughter and I did the two day course (over three days) and we loved every minute of it. Excellent equipment and Paulo was a brilliant teacher who was also endowed with infinite patience! The huge gently sloping beach was also a plus for learning to body drag. I have no hesitation in recommending Tribe Watersports if you want to learn to kite surf.

Another awesome trip to Watamu with Tribe. This time included a boat trip to swim and paddle with the dolphins and a safari into Tsavo - both of which I can't recommend highly enough! Thanks and see you all again soon.

I was in Watamu on January 2014 for 10 days and while I was there I took a beginners Kitesurf course and some private lessons with Tribe. By the end of my stay I was up and riding comfortably in both directions. I was so impressed with Ben and his team I Booked my 14 year old son in for the beginners course when we returned in February this year, he was also up and riding after a few lessons.
I can’t state enough how amazing Tribe Watersports are, it’s not just the tuition that is fun friendly and easy to understand or the beautiful location with perfect wind every day, but the whole package. I would be on the beach practising and Ben would make sure someone was always there to help and watch out for me me, and at the end of the day my kite and lines were taken back to Tribe to be washed and ready for the next day.
If you’re going to Watamu and want to learn to kitesurf, Tribe Watersports is the place to go.
Thanks Ben and Ellie for an amazing time, I can’t wait to come back next year.
