“great time!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Just came back from Zanzibar and the kite course at Airborne Kitecenter definetly made my stay there!
All of the instructors are 100% confident in every kite-question and very friendly. They really enjoy teaching so that I felt highly comftable with all the new things. The equipment (kites and boards for every wind and every level) looked almost new. We did some lessons everytime there was enough wind, so you can be sure to learn kite surfing as fast as possible. With the renting afterwards they were flexible and charged a good price.
I hope to get back there one day and highly recommend Airborne to everybody who wants to learn kite surfing in a great atmosphere!

“Personalised training!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 via mobile

Thanks for the great experience. I have stayed only 3days in zanzibar of which one day with no wind at all. The other 2 days we had enough wind to go kiting! The staff is very friendly and professional. I have chosen for Airborne kite centre as their response to my kite enquiry was the most personalised and friendliest. If you go to Zanzibar to learn how to kite, those guys can definitely help you! Cheers

“They could make pigs fly!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

At around 60 years of age I came to the sport a little later than many of Airborne Kite Centre’s customers. This may explain why at the end of their 3 day introductory course I was still swallowing seawater and crashing their kites. But never say die, and I returned to Paje in Zanzibar a few months later for another round. How exhilarating it is when you finally stand up on that board and glide over the waves – I have been addicted ever since. Much credit to Jan and his staff for their good-humoured patience, attention to safety and capacity to impart some of their skills to even the most unpromising of beginners. Highly recommended.

From the beginning these guys were very friendly & professional.

They were very flexible working in with the tides & wind conditions, great teachers.
