Attraction details
Owner description: Our school offers high quality kitesurfing in Antigua. We offer tuition with IKO certified instructors (International Kitesurfing Organization) with the latest and safest equipment. We are located in Nonsuch Bay, on the windward shore of Antigua, in the Caribbean, where the trade winds blow strong and constant. The bay is completely closed by the reef and offers a condition of warm and flat water, ideal to learn and progress. Updated equipment, newest teaching methods and power boat assistance make the best combination for your perfect learning experience. The kitesurfing lessons will start from the beach of Green Island, a tiny island windward to Nonsuch bay, with white sand and crystal blue water; a perfect landing/launching area for kites.

40knots is an amazing kite school! Super professional with great teachers. We did several times “the Lift”, which means they pick you up on Antigua with the boat, bring you to Green Island and keep an eye on you for the whole day. The spot is perfect and the team takes really good care of you! Also I never saw any other school where the students learned to kite that fast! They go out with the students with boats so the students never loose time by walking back upwind on the beach and it’s super safe! Almost everybody was ready for the board after the 1st lessons, and that is really, really fast as everybody knows who tried it once...;) if you want to learn kite surfing there is no better place to go than there!

Could not recommend these guys highly enough! A birthday present for my boyfriend got us on the Beginners Camp, incredible introduction and great fun at the end experiencing the power the kite can give. Back the next two days for the Get Going course. We were both up and kiting by the end but wanted to make the most of the expert instructors, location, great team of staff and high quality gear. In total we had 6 lessons with these guys! We were able to talk through all the different equipment & any aspect of kiting, what would suit us as a couple working on a yacht and then what would suit us both if we wanted to limit the gear we carried around. We were able to trial some of the gear in a 1-1 instruction with some of the more technical instructors. In the end we bought all our gear from these guys, everything was in perfect condition and had only been used for a few weeks prior to us purchasing it. To go from knowing absolutely nothing about kiting to being an independent kiter in 6 lessons is a huge accolade to these guys on their knowledge, patience, instruction and being able to perfect every aspect of kiting. We stayed an extra few days in order to go out on our own without an instructor, launching from the beach. The support we had from 40 knots staff with launching and talking us through everything to keep us and others as safe as possible was incredible. They constantly have someone looking out for any kiters that may get into any difficulty. If you want to learn to kite, I would only recommend the amazing team at 40knots. A huge thanks to Suzi, Max, Irene, Tivone, Marko, Chris, Johan & Lise and the rest of the guys for being incredibly welcoming & making this an experience we will never forget!!!

Husband had completed basic kite surfing course in UK and was wanting to progress further in warmer waters. He booked two sessions 2 1/2 hours each with an instructor and progressed massively in these sessions. Excellent one on one instruction from boat in safe waters with good breeze. Friendly accommodating staff. Perfect environment in which to develop your skills. Highly recommended.

If you want to learn to kite surf, this is the place to go. What a great team of staff. Go along for the ride and watch your family and friends from the beach at Green island. We went paddle boarding here, and it is difficult water to learn in, but, for experience wind surfers, this is also the place to go.

we started kiting with 40knot when our entire family were beginners. we have all progressed to being independent kiters. The constant has been the 40knot staff and equipment. Irene, Christian, Susi and the entire staff are some of the nicest people you will meet and they know their stuff from helping/teaching beginners to helping the more advanced kiters with tricks etc. The Ozone equipment they use is top shelf and in top shape. Green Island is a special place to kite and we could not recommend this group more strongly....many thanks
