Kite boarding school with great instructors and safe, progressive methods. We are smack on the beach and have great wind from October through May. Jessica is our lead instructor and we have a great team ready to teach you and your family to kite board. We offer great kite lesson packages and organize kite camps through out the year. Learn to kite board at Playa Central, the big yellow building on the beautiful beach of the La Ventana Bay.
