Attraction details
Owner description: Our school offers high quality kitesurfing and windsurfing tuition with IKO certified instructors (International Kitesurfing Organization) with the latest and safest equipment. We are located in Nonsuch Bay, on the windward shore of Antigua, where the trade winds blow strong and constant. The bay is completely closed by the reef and offers a condition of warm and flat water, ideal to learn and progress. Updated equipment, newest teaching methods and power boat assistance make the best combination for your perfect learning experience. The kitesurfing lessons will start from the beach of Green Island, a tiny island windward to Nonsuch bay, with white sand and crystal blue water; a perfect landing/launching area for kites.

“We love!!!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We visited quite a few kite schools in the caribbean but they are the best! Our whole family took lessons from beginner to intermediate and we made very good progress due to the perfect teaching conditions and the very dedicated team. The team is just super and the location awesome. Especially the lessons for our 9 year old son have been outstanding. 40 knots, we wish you guys all the best! s/y heckogecko

“Learning Kitesurfing in Antigua”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Just returned from a week spent at the Nonsuch Bay resort with family. Having windsurfed since I was a teenager, I finally decided that it was time to take kitesurfing lessons. The whole experience was just awesome. Antigua and 40 Knots, in particular, have all the ingredients to become a reference: the spot is perfect, the wind is good, the staff is knowledgeable, professional, supportive, courteous and friendly, the equipment is well suited for all levels. Could not find anything even mildly negative to say about this Italian/German business. Gabriele, my instructor, was top class. As for Max, Irene and Suzanne, they make you feel part of the kitesurfing family. What more can you ask for?

So for all of you out there looking for a great place to learn kitesurfing, 40 Knots is THE place to go.

“Awesome, Fun, Amazing, Brilliant… What else can we say!!!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We were complete beginners and the instructors at 40Knots were excellent in making us feel comfortable with the equipment straight away. All of them are enthusiastic and obviously have a love for teaching others and passing on their love for the sport. Could not have asked for a better introduction. Had such an awesome, wonderful time. Thank you 40Knots team! You guys are great!!!

“What a rush, sensational instruction and amazing kiteboarding!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Started off a complete novic having never even flown a kite and with top class instruction I was up out the water and riding along after 4-6 hours. At first it seems expensive but for the quality of.instruction and friendly attitude of all staff it justifies itself, not to mention the rush of embracing a natural element and gliding over the tropically warm water. Great place to learn and i would recomend this school to any1 eager to try this sensational sport
