If you are a kiteboarder (of any skill level), try to imagine the perfect day. For me, it would be a private island lagoon, steady 18-22 mph wind, flat water slicks, and sunshine on sparkling clean turquoise water. I'd also want to bring along a few (just a few) close friends, and I'd want the non-kiteboarders to feel as stoked at the end of the day as I.
On a recent trip to Providenciales, I spent my first day kiting at Long Bay. It was perfect: wide open launching/landing/riding areas, constant trade winds, knee-to-waist deep clear blue waters, and bleached-white sand beaches. I really didn't think it could get any better.
At Long Bay, KiteProvo conducts kiteboarding lessons, and I was impressed with the skill and professionalism of the instruction I observed that first day. Later that evening, I was lucky to join with a small group that had booked a kite excursion with KiteProvo for the following day.
Mid-morning, we met at the marina and loaded kiting and snorkeling equipment into KiteProvo's spacious boat. Mike Fox, the owner of KiteProvo, was our host and captain, and he took us on a kiting adventure that I'll always remember.
The journey itself was memorable, with sightings of sea turtles and gorgeous island scenery. But the private island lagoon that we visited was breathtaking, and the day that unfolded could not have been better.
The five kiters in our group had perfect flat water conditions in a shallow lagoon, all to ourselves. Our two non-kiters explored the uninhabited island and came back raving about the beautiful beach on the leeward side. Their descriptions convinced us all to check it out, and it was indeed the perfect beach. The day could hardly get better until, on our return trip, Mike took us snorkeling at a sunken ship with tropical fish galore in clear aquarium-like water. All the while, Mike was professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, skilled and fun.
If you are looking for a 5-star kiteboarding experience, one that may exist for the moment only in your dreams or imagination, I highly recommend the kite boat-excursion with KiteProvo. Mike will tailor and personalize the trip to meet the needs and desires of your group, and I promise without hesitation that you won't regret this grand adventure in the Turks & Caicos.
