We had a really good time at the Kitezone. Dave, his wife Bua and the whole team are really nice. We started a beginner's course and had fun all the time. Chris, our german-speaking teacher, did a great job, even without wind. He also was reallyhelpful in finding good places for food and shops :) If you get the vibes... More

This is a great school to learn. Their instructors (nam & Alex) were very patient and Dave was very helpful with many advices. I really appreciated staying there and I will definitely go back as soon as possible!

Friendly, helpful people with good knowledge of local conditions. Good range of new season Ozone kites available to rent. Only had time for 1 day's kiting so it was cheaper to rent than fly my own gear over!

Never have I had such a bad experience with something that should have been fun. The manager was aggressive and rude. The instructor was angry and shouting all the time, the location of lessons was horrible... I would NEVER recommend this school. After horrible lesson, we went to another school in Phuket and had a great time with great people.

Dave B, Owner at Kite Zone Phuket, responded to this review

In over 8 years of business we have never had a comment like this, are you sure you have the right school, Kite Zone? If so I'm very sorry to hear you feel this way. For the last few weeks I have been in the UK visiting family so we would not have met each other unfortunately. My instructors have... More

The guys are very good! I enjoyed a lot my kitesurfing lessons with them. We needed to change place because it was to much wind and went to a pretty, smal and safe beach perfect to beginners like me. I do recomend.

Dave's operation is professional and welcoming. I booked a SUP trip with my cousin and it was like three friends out for a good as opposed to a stuffy guided tour experience.

Dave is friendly and very knowledgeable about Phuket. Kite Zone is a no frills, laid back operation. He's a great SUP instructor and a great tour guide. When I come back to Thailand I will definitely do another tour!

Met up with Dave as we'd arranged to look round the shop and complex. Dave was very welcoming and helpful, a fountain of kitesurfing knowledge! I was really impressed with the setup, especially the bar!! Great kit as well.

Signed up for 3 day (10 hr) beginners kite board course. The owner of Kite Zone Dave Barnes answered all our queries before we arrived. Quality of teaching and equipment was excellent but the instructors also took us for Street mkt meals on way back from a days surfing and were generous with tips and recommendation for other things to...

Hi Dave, Back at my desk already, can’t believe how fast that went! Just wanted to thank you all for looking after me so well. I thoroughly enjoyed the kitesurfing and even though I’ll probably only manage to stay up more than 20 seconds post 80th birthday I’m going to keep going! Thankfully I’m not too put off by my...
