“Kitesurfing @ Paya Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Myself and my family went to Roatan March 2013. We started on the touristy end of the Island and were lucky enough to end up at the very private Paya Bay Resort with Chris and Marilou. I was just a beginner kite boarder and went out for 3 sessions with Chris. Great instruction. Very hands on, getting in the water with you and helping analyze what you are doing wrong and correcting it. Their prices are so reasonable I actually paid them more. If you like it quiet, peaceful and beautiful and want to learn how to kite board this is the place to go.

“A great time at a great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

We were lucky to find Kitesurf Roatan only 10min away from Port Royal where we were anchored. Chris and Marilou were great. They took really good care of us and we learned a lot. Always helpful and ready to help. Not expensive and did not charge anything if there was not enough wind even if they drove us around and spent time with us.
The location is beautiful and great for beginners but also for more advanced kitesurfers. Especially for people who are into diving as well. The island is the perfect spot for a combination of the two. If there is not enough wind (not often) you can go diving on some fantastic dive sites.
I would recommend Kitesurf Roatan to anyone!

“Amazing spot, amazing people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

Coming to Roatan for diving, I discovered Marilou and Chris were renting gears and offering kitesurf classes on the same Island. I had an amazing time there: kitesurfing in great spots along the reef, with no other kites around, good wind conditions up to sunset and caribbean water. Both are really nice and cool persons, in addition to be extremely good in this sport: I definitely improved listening to their advice and I hope I will have the opportunity to ride with them again in Roatan,

“Yoga and Kitesurfing with Marilou and Chris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

I met Marilou and Chris, the owners of Kitesurf Roatan while staying a Paya Bay Resort on the east end of the island. The resort offers complementary yoga. Marilou was our yoga instructor. I have been trying yoga for years and up until now I just haven't "gotten it". Every session with Marilou was full of discovery about what I always hoped yoga could do for me. I did not get to kitesurf with Marilou and Chris but I would like to. I am confident that she along with Chris would be excellent instructors. Learning a new sport well requires a teacher who can share their knowledge and feel for it with you in a way you can use it. I am confident that these two kind people "get it" and you will two. Give them a try.
