I had heard Bill Kraft was a great kitesurfing teacher so I went for a vacation with my family so as to take lessons and get a family vacation at the same time. I do confirm that Bill is an excellent teacher. I went there for a specific type of lesson (learn how to use a directional surf board) and Bill got me there. At first I felt like I would never be able to use a surf board but Bill got me on it. Actually, Bill would be able to get you to ride on a piece of soap of you wanted to (it is actually how it felt like at first when he put me on a strapless surf board). At the end, Bill got me to do a 2 hr+ downwind on that same strapless piece of soap. Needless to say that he is an excellent teacher, focusing on EVERY detail thanks to his walkie talkie system. If you want to learn how to kite or improve your skills at any level and have a great vacation make yourself a favor and GO!!

Bill was a great teacher and I had a great time learning with my son. My son took right to it and they both coached me until I got it. I really appreciated Bill's time and attention.

Beautiful location, great sport, great teacher.

Visited St Croix on vacation and took a couple additional kite boarding lessons from Bill Kraft at Kite St Croix. Bill was a patient teacher and got me to a point where I can kite board independently. If you intend to give kiteboarding a go, Bill is a great choice to help you learn, I was his only student, he used a chase boat and a radio-helmet so I was able to learn quickly. I would highly recommend him.

When you leave Kite St. Croix after spending some time on the water with Bill Kraft, I guarantee that you will consider yourself lucky to have met and learned from this inspirational waterman. If you are interested in learning this beautiful sport, or want to go to the next level, do yourself a favor and spend some time With Bill at Kite St. Croix. He is by far the best kiteboarding instructor that I have worked with. He can also teach you something about living and enjoying your life to the fullest.

Bill was an amazing teacher! I could only fit two lessons into my trip, but they were well worth it.
