Explore Kenya with Kite N' Surf
A kite surfing trip that you won’t forget to the hidden pearl of Africa
What really makes Kenya and especially Watamu really special is the reef that sits approximately ½km off the beach which protects the whole bay giving you a flat water riding experience. When the summer swells kick in you get fantastic waves (2-3m). To top it all off there are a number of large sandbars that are ideal to learn to kitesurf from as well as creating that butter smooth flat water that freestyle kitesurfers are always seeking
There are two windy seasons in Watamu; November – April and June
– September. They are both trade winds and are named the Kaskhazi and the Kuzi. Both these winds blow cross-onshore making it ideal for learning.
The Kuzi (June – September): This season is a little cooler but there is still no need for a wetsuit, at most just a top. These cooler winds have a little more power to them with wind speeds ranging up to 30knts. As a result small kites 7m-12m are reccomended.
The beach in front of our hotel has been nominated among the best beaches of Africa and of the World.
The Beach is a long stretch of pristine white coral sand. During low tide a sand bank appears from the sparkling turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, giving everyone the opportunity to walk through the water and soak in one of the natural crystal pools the tide leaves behind.
This adrenaline filled trip is suitable for all levels of kiteboarders. From those with no experience at all, right through to those learning their first jumps and even the most advanced freestyle maneuvers, complete beginners full courses and even advanced coaching from freestyle champion Jacopo Cantini can be provided. Any desired equipment is also available for rent.
