Owner description: We are the first and longest running kiteboarding school in the Turks & Caicos, since 2006. We have the most experience and most importantly, “Our Instructors Make the Difference!” We utilize bluetooth radio communication helmets in order to offer you just the right amount of instruction at the right time. This also eliminates watercraft which are noisy and a waste of time. We utilize this for all advanced beginners to advanced lessons. Our Instructors Make the Difference At KiteProvo, they know that the instructor makes the difference. KiteProvo has assembled a team of not only top level kiteboarders, but instructors that match our philosophy of taking a personal interest in the success of each and every student. Kite Provo then trains them in the art of communication and how to change teaching style to meet the learning style of our guests and new friends. The school manager, Chris Moore, has been teaching kite sports professionally since 1990 and kiteboarding since 1999. In 2002 Chris wrote the teaching manual for instructor certification, pioneering the PASA Kiteboarding Division. Using his extensive experience and passion for teaching, KiteProvo has trained the highest caliber of instructors on the planet right here in The Turks and Caicos. KiteProvo will strive to constantly exceed your expectation and guarantee that you will also have a fantastic time.

We decided to learn to kite board and went to Turks and Caicos as it was a highly recommended place to learn. The advice was spot on. We took three lessons and were racing across the sea by the end. The instructors were excellent. They were really concerned about safety but not in a lecturing way. The beach is perfect for learning with waist deepwater for a mile and an onshore breeze. Instruction was great. Kite Provo were also really great to deal with. We had to reschedule and cancel on a couple of days because of storms one day and calm another. Mike came to find us in the hotel so we would not waste time. If only all companies were as easy to deal with....
We plan on a repeat visit. It was really great.

First of all let me say that Mike is such an awesome teacher. Second, I booked this activity 30 minutes prior to the time I wanted to start and Mike showed up ready to rock. He accelerated my lesson for me and got me up and kite surfing in a matter of an hour. (granted i have a lot of boarding experience prior but still his teaching skills are on par)

I recommend this company to anyone.

One of the most rewarding experiences traveling is the people; they color your trip. Mike and Jessica and Terry were truly exceptional people; just great all around, and that makes all the difference in the world. Professional, funny, super flexible, and very acccomodating to me, my wife and my 14 year old son. We had never kiteboarded before and they took us under their wings. I would recommend KiteProvo to anyone interested in learning to ride, they are the best!

We had taken a lesson last year and enjoyed the experience so much we were returning with our teenage sons for them to enjoy the thrill & excitement. Kite Provo worked with us to customize the day for our family. We appreciated their flexibility in planning the day.

And it was a fantastic day! The kids (and we) had a great time and they are both already talking about "next time"..."when we come back"... The excursion is incredible exceeded only by the phenomenal beauty of the locales.

Jessica and Mike are both great instructors! We appreciated their patience with the kids (and us!). The clear focus on safety was a comfort from the "parent" perspective. And getting us all up and out of the water in 1 day was a huge success! In our goal to give our kids experiences, this one is toppings the list right now. :)

We just returned from a week vacation to TCI after researching several different destinations for optimum kiteboarding conditions and qualified instruction for beginners. A major reason for our trip was to become more proficient at kiteboarding after taking a few lessons in Cape Cod last summer. Prior to our arrival to TCI, we read reviews and had numerous correspondences with KiteProvo to learn first hand they were very helpful, responsive, knowledgable and professional regarding all our questions. We arrived with some basic skills knowing we needed more instruction with set up, safety, kite flying and riding. On the first full day of being on the island, Mike Fox picked our family of three up at the resort and we were off to Long Bay. Mike exceeded our expectations, we were comfortable from the start. He quickly ascertained our strengths and weaknesses and patiently guided us through an assortement of lessons and supervised practice over 4 days. He is experienced, super friendly, calm and gives you just the right amount of independence to build your confidence. We could not have been more pleased with his friendly manner and expertise, always feeling that we were in safe equipment with a super qualified instructor that could resolve each situation we got into as beginners. As for Long Bay, we cannot imagine a better place to learn...warm, waist deep water with steady on-shore wind. We cannot say enough about how great our experience was with Mike and KiteProvo, worth every well spent dollar. We cannot wait to return and take lessons with Mike and KiteProvo again. The best news is that all 3 of us, despite different levels of comfort are up and riding! What a thrill to be beyond the basics so quickly!!!!!

Hello guys! Thanks for the review. Your family was a joy to be around. Dedicated and fun people like you are the reason we love teaching. It was exciting to see all of you grasp the kite control and move onto riding so quickly. All the best to you guys with any upcoming kiting adventures. Keep us posted on your progress and hope to see you back here sometime soon.
