Our school offers high quality kitesurfing and windsurfing tuition with IKO certified instructors (International Kitesurfing Organization) with the latest and safest equipment. We are located in Nonsuch Bay, on the windward shore of Antigua, where the trade winds blow strong and constant. The bay is completely closed by the reef and offers a condition of warm and flat water, ideal to learn and progress. Updated equipment, newest teaching methods and power boat assistance make the best combination for your perfect learning experience. 
The kitesurfing lessons will start from the beach of Green Island, a tiny island windward to Nonsuch bay, with white sand and crystal blue water; a perfect landing/launching area for kites.

What can I say? The teachers and staff were great, more than that.... superb. The location is beautiful, the bay big and windy all day. Non-stop wind during my whole stay, and the fact that all classes were in deep water made it safe and fun. They had sails from 4 to 19sqm to mach any conditions that we encountered,... More

A very professional and very kind team. The spot is really nice for beginners or non-beginners. Very regular wind - 15/20 knots - during our stay and a very safe place. One of the best kitesurf spot & team I have ever practised with.

An unbeatable service with knowledgeable, friendly and efficient staff. A great kitesurfing venue for beginners and experts alike. The tuition and location are perfect for beginners or those wanting to progress, with the lagoon inside the reef perfect for more experienced riders. The kit is top quality and upto date. This is our 3rd year in a row and every... More

Very knowledgable people, also very encouraging. They take as much time as you need to teach you. Common phrase is 'take your time' and there is no stress just pure enjoyment!

I have been fortunate enough to kite in a number of locations around the world over the last ten years and have generally found kite centre staff to be friendly and helpful. The team at 40 Knots did not disappoint but they are also amongst the best organised, slick and professional teams I have ever come across. Everything ran to... More

Had a great week in Antigua learning to kiteboard at 40 knots. Irene and Johan were both brilliant and kind instructors and had me up and riding in no time. I would thoroughly recommend them . As an added bonus Irene's espresso is the best on the Island...I am looking forward to going back.

Spent the day today with my wife and the lovely Max from 40knots kitesurfing on Green Island, the small private island they kite from which is a quick boat trip away from their shop. The cost of the trip was well worth it and I'll be back for sure. There's nothing on the small island except some great clear blue... More
