Learning the sport of kitesurfing is a huge challenge and Bill could not have been a better, or more patient instructor. I felt like he was genuinely excited for me when I got the basics down and had some rides. What I particularly like is that he is teaching from a chase boat where he has a radio feed into... More

My husband is a accomplished kiteboarder and I've attempted lessons in many locations around the world but never really got it until I spent time with Bill at Kite St. Croix. His expertise is undeniable. His patience is unlimited. His setup is unreal. For nearly a week my husband and I were the only other kiteboarders around, and nothing but... More

My 11 year old daughter and I took paddle boarding lessons with Isabelle at Chenay Bay and she was absolutely wonderful!! We loved it. We rented them again 2 days later and felt like we had been doing it forever!! Isabelle was patient and so knowledgable. Loved it!!!

Bill made learning something that is inherently intimidating as flying powerful kites, as easy as riding a bicycle. His equipment is in fantastic shape, and using a chase boat and radio helmets, really maximized my learning experience. I would recommend him to anyone, novice to experienced to learn from.

TripAdvisor is a great app to learn about places and activities based on the experiences of others, and to register your own experiences. I would like to be able to edit my posts to correct typos, but that does not seem to be possible.

Our 3 teenagers wanted to try paddle boarding. We scheduled a morning lesson at Chenay Bay and within 15 minutes, all three were up and doing great. We returned for a second visit later in our week and there was a significant increase in their ability and confidence even after only 2 lessons. Bill is an exceptional instructor and really... More

My husband and 10 year old son took paddle boarding lessons at Chenay Bay and loved it. They paddled all over the calm waters and saw starfish and sea turtles. They also went out on kayaks and had a great time. I was able to snorkel with my younger son so we were all together. Chenay Bay is a good... More

We had been wanting to try Paddleboarding for quite some time before we moved to St. Croix. We came across Bill Kraft while lunching at Chenay Bay (great fish tacos, by the way!), before we were aware of his sterling reputation. Bill is the consummate professional, and has been so accommodating, guiding us throw lessons, and the different types of... More

My second trip to St Croix to learn with Bill. Had wasted plenty of time and money on lessons with lesser instructors. Bill is patient, has a great system for teaching with his boat and headset which ensures you will get plenty of water starts. The location and water conditions are absolutely perfect. If the wind cooperates you couldn't ask... More

I visited St. Croix the first week of February 2015, while visiting the island I wanted to try paddle boarding for the first time. I was concerned because we had rough waters over the last couple days. When I booked, they had me meet at Cheney Bay, which the waters were much calmer in this bay. When I arrived I... More
