“great experience for everyone”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I learned to Kite pretty fast, its very fun and very a extreme sport.
If you are loooking for an extreme sport on this beautiful island on the water where sometimes you can see dolphins swimming besides you,
You have come to the right place!
I think everyone should experience this amazing feeling.
My only complain is, that it's the classes are expensive, but if you like it, you can just buy your equipment and you are ready to go!

“kiteboard lessons”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

At age 50 likely one of the oldest students on the beach. My instructor Peter is a primaru school teacher but had taken a break to teach his passion a was nd I am so glad he did! Everyone of the staff was very friendly but even more importantly knew how to teach. I booked 3 lessons and was able to get up on the board by my third lesson. If you want to learn how to safely kite board want and have great teachers at an affordable price this is your chance! Thankyou Peter and the rest of the staff for a great time!

“Go even if you are just a spectator”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

My DH and I went down to the Kite boarding beach just to pick up a hamburger at the trailer and watch the kiteboarders. The time spent there was very enjoyable. This is a good budget minded activity.

“Best Kiteboarding Instructor on Bonaire !!!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

My kiteboarding lessons January 2014 with Lars, the owner of Bonaire Kiteschool, were the best most informative lessons I have received to date. I have taken 31 hours of lessons so far,at different locations, and the 7 hours of lessons from Lars were the best yet. He is the most qualified instructor on the Island, he holds an , IKO Level 2 SENIOR license, and it shows !!!!! He had tips on how to rig the equipment I have not heard before. A few hints on how to body drag to recover my board that no instructor has ever told me. After 24 hours of lessons with other instructors, Lars finally explained to me how to hold the power bar in relation to the kite in the sky. No instructor ever caught this mistake before!!! I could list a dozen more tips Lars gave me in the seven hours of lessons...but you get the idea !!!! PS...I have one complaint with Trip Advisor....I don't know how a person can write a review on a kiteboarding school when all they do is drive into the parking lot, sit down on a rock and watch all the kiteboarders in the ocean and then give a "3 green dot" rating !!! These reviews are suppose to be informative about a Kiteboarding school and their instructors, not just to leave a review that states.......

"We were just there to observe and take some pictures. It was interesting to watch them" And then just give them a " 3 green dot rating" . Not a helpful review at all and not a fair review !!!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

The guys and girls of Bonaire Kiteschool are wonderful instructeurs. Their equipment is good and they really try to make their lessons tailor made to your needs. When going out on sea they join you in a boat and have special radio helmets so you can hear their instructions. I had a good time taking lessons at Bonaire Kiteschool. Bonaire is a perfect place to start your kite surfing career - as I did - or enjoy a few hours of kiting when you're already a pro. They look after you and pick you up by boat if you can't surf back to shore. I liked their vibe and am sure that you will as well!
