Asia's 1st IKO kiteboarding center and the center where kite lessons professionalism was brought to Asia. Attention to safety and its position on the lagoon make it the no1 kite center on Bulabog Beach.

Slingshot, Future, Nobile, LiP, Mystic, Prolimit + other premium brands.

I rented full equipment for 3 weeks and I was very happy witht the service and had great time on the water. The guys were very helpful and friendly - until I get ready to go in the water the kite and the bars were waiting for me. On the water it was not that crowded as some people fear... More

Wonderful to hear you realised our end of the beach normally is less crowded and that the staff offered you lots of help. SOme peoples crowded is very different to others that have cruised a lagoon alone. We hope to see you again later or next season. Ocean Team More

This was the first shop i inquired about renting a board and Dimitri gave me an awesome price, not even close to the other kiteshops. plus free use of the facilities. My kite was always pumped up by the friendly staff and assisted in launching and landing (which you will need in this narrow beach). My brother also had his... More

Despite my apprehension I had a great few days with Ocean Republic. Dimitri and Nono were great! They hold safety as a top priority and despite being terrified of the power of the kit I always knew my instructor was there to save my skin! They explain the concepts simply and you get to practice over and over till you... More

I came to Boracay to kite surf, and I was keen to go out at every opportunity! The team at ocean republic made that possible, from the launching and landing assistance on the beach to the help fixing a broken valve or replacing the safety lines to an old bar. I can't recommend it enough, these guys and gal made... More

A full quiver of Slingshot kites, boards, booties, bars and everything you need. The staff is freindly, helpful and efficient. The kite caddies are awesome too. A very cool chill area with benches, pillows and bean bags right on the beach, so you can watch all the action, plus another chill area with couches and free coffee and water. Definitely... More

Melvyn and Nono were extremely accommodating in getting some lessons and then renting kit. The guys were very friendly and to be honest the few hours I had with nono, made a huge difference to my riding. Nono especially is a fantastic teacher and I would definitely recommend him.

The crew that works with Ocean Republic is outstanding and the price is very fair. I started my search with companies and was left hanging with many no-replies with the exception of Ocean Republic.

Before going to Boracay, I did a bit of research on which kitesurfing school is considered the best as all of the prices are comparable.
