My boyfriend and I had a week in Watamu recently and were keen to try kite surfing. We decided to go with Tribe based on the TripAdvisor recommendations and the fact that they were easy to find in Medina Palms (just head there and ask any of the security / reception / maintenance people around).
We had Sebastian for an instructor who was really patient and fun to be around. We had Ben close by teaching some other people and he looked like a great teacher also. They also had windsurfing, stand up paddle boards etc. We had planned to go stand up paddle boarding with Ben however the weather turned a bit rough - hopefully next time.
Kite surfing itself was both harder and easier than I expected. It's a balancing act more than pure strength thing so don't be afraid of trying even if you're not super fit or strong.
We loved the three day course and are inspired to have another go next time we're by some windy coast line.
I'd highly recommend Tribe but my only advice would be to shoot them an email to book before arriving as I think they'll be really busy throughout the main tourist seasons.
