The location is really amazing for kiting, especially for beginners because the water is shallow. Great kite school. Probably come back soon.

Uhuru beach for us is the best spot on the island - specialy if you are looking for kitesurfing and a place to meet different people. Leo is a great instructor - professional, personal attention and no rushing. Really cares about kitesurfing and his clients!

Fantastic kitesurfing school with superb teachers. Would definitely recommend taking lessons at Uhuru Kite, excellent conditions (paradise) with not too many other kites on the water. Leo is a patient and outstanding teacher!
