Reviewed 9 January 2014

I would defiantly recommend this to anyone wanting to pick up a new hobby or just trying something new! The instruction is easy to understand in English and Dutch. The instructors know what they are doing and help you out to the best of their abilities, as there is only so much they can do from a boat. I've had two lessons so far and can already get up on the board. One more lesson and I would be able to do my own boarding! Even if you are not interested in lessons, its just as fun standing on the beach and watching the pros do their thing!

“stop and watch”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We sropped by here on our way around the island to watch the kiteboarders, it was amazing to watch them fly across the water and then right up in the air. I love to fly power kites but have never been in the water on a board. There were allot of kiteboarders hanging around, it looked like a great place to have some fun. You should stop by on a trip around the island to watch, it was super cool.

Reviewed 3 August 2013

We were just there to observe and take some pictures. It was interesting to watch them set up and skate across the water.

“Second lesson on the Board!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

I'm 44 years old and 200 lbs and wanted to Kite Surf. Got some good reference from Bonaire Kite school. Contacted them and received in 24 hours a nice proposal for several trainings together with my son of 17. Lars the owner is very relaxed, gives a lot of information and starts the lesson in steps. He is very keen on safety and that is very important because wind can be very strong an take you very where. First lessons we learned all technics and after a hour started with dragging on the water. Lars takes constantly good care and trains you on the skills and technics. On the second part of the second lesson he gave us the board and I was standing for 50 meters. Great experience because I thought in needed minimum 5 lessons. I know had 4th lesson and I can kite one way and stand on the board and keep the kite in position. Great sport. Next lessons we are going to practice more and learning to turn. Great school,very professional and relax trainers.

“Great for spectators too”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

It is a good place to kitesurf, but a fabulous place to watch the more adventurous. The food wagon there makes a great lionfish sandwich so you can do your bit to control this invasive species by enjoying a good lunch.
