Reviewed September 2, 2013

The 3 day beginners course with Ben was amazing. Beautiful beach, with the sandbar providing the perfect conditions for beginners. Highly recommend Tribe for all your kiting needs. Ben is an excellent teacher who is super encouraging and gets you going quickly. Can't wait to come back!

“Great people, great equipment”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Highly recommended.

Spent a few days in Watamu for trying out Kitesurfing and can really recommend Tribe. Ben has many many years of experience, really helps you to get started quickly and encourages you - I have a good comparison as I did a class a few years ago and must say we progressed here so much faster.
Conditions in Watamu are also really great - you get to try out many things in the water where you would be on land elsewhere. Tribe's equipment is brand new and very good stuff.
Last but not least, Elli was extremely helpful organizing everything. Thanks a lot guys!

“Kiting With The Tribe”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Our trip to Tribe Watersports consisted of brand new kit rental, BKSA tuition and accommodation, all of which was organized by the Tribe team. My partner had one to one kiting tuition with Ben and having never kite surfed before managed to make great progress. There was an excellent array of equipment available allowing any size of rider to get out on the water regardless of the conditions.

There is some world class kite surfing to be had at Watamu and Tribe can organize some epic downwinders which I would highly recommend! Ben and Ellie could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Their expert advice blended with the chilled atmosphere helped make this one of the best and most memorable kite surfing trips.

“Couldn't have been better”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I did a three day beginners course with Tribe in June and really didn't expect it (me) to be as successful as it was. Ben is clearly a natural teacher with lots of positive encouragement along the way that meant I was up and riding with no problems :) Tribe were totally professional from start to finish, all the equipment was new and safety was obviously a priority. Having friendly local staff on the beach to help catch and launch kites was a real help too. Watamu beach is beautiful and having the sandbar makes it perfect for learning. I'd definitely recommend Tribe and will be back for more as soon as possible!
