We didn't know what to expect from our 10 days in Watamu, but thanks to Ben, Ellie and the team we had one of the best kitesurfing trips yet!
Watamu is a great kiting area, with so many different spots and conditions to suit all levels. Perfect warm flat water over the sand bar, great waves out back to have fun on, and Mida Creek for those wanting to explore. The downwinder at the end of the day back to town was a great way to finish off each session. We were there at the end of August / beginning of September and the wind was really constant and reliable. Perfect 12m weather most days with the occasional 10m day.
Some of our group were having lessons and renting from Ben and they all got on so well - having the boat means that Ben can zoom to the back of the sandbar so that the girls had loads of space and didn't have to worry about other kiters. The rental equipment was all this years kit and in superb condition.
Ben made sure that we had a great time in the evenings too, recommending the best restaurants and suggesting suitably age-relevant places to party on the weekends. Watamu was such a fun town - all the locals were really friendly and genuinely happy to show off and share their beach with tourists.
Thank you so much Ben and Ellie, and we can't wait to come back.
