Crosskite Kitefit Camp Watamu

Kitefit Camp

Crosskite with be joining us at Tribe Watersports to offer a fantastic camp in Watamu in January 2015!

Our focus for this camp will of course be the kitesurfing, and you will enjoy this part like nowhere else! For our advanced riders the conditions provide excellent opportunities to just freeride in an incredibly beautiful environment, to progress in their freestyle tricks in perfectly flat water or to improve their waveriding skills in the little swell out on the reef. For our beginners the conditions could not be better either: a large sandbar going out almost to the reef gives us the option to teach at every tidal condition, enabling students to stand in the water on the sand at all times.


As the wind always only kicks in at midday, the mornings leave us time for other activities: stand up paddleboarding and kayaking to see the beautiful sealife with turtles, baby sharks or dolphins; wakeboarding on the flat water of Mida Creek; a relaxing float through the Mangroves at the receding tide; or just a sleep in for the holiday feeling! Obviously we will not forget our fitness sessions, and the best time for those is in the morning when the temperature is a little bit cooler. The sandy beach, the big rocks on it and the almost wild strip of nature right behind with hills and climbing trees give us lots of natural tools and areas to create a versatile and fun playground to train and get fit!

But as Watamu and its surroundings are areas calling for adventure, we will not strictly focus on our kitesurfing and fitness program. According to what our participants feel like doing, our activities plan includes 2 days of safari, a visit at the snake farm, a sail on a dhow (traditional Kenyan boat), a downwinder from Malindi to Watamu, and deep sea fishing!

For the camp we will be working together with Tribe Watersports, the local kite school based at Medina Palms Resort. Our beginners will be taught by their internationally qualified and excellent instructors. They will also provide us with a safety boat, rental gear, stand-up-paddleboards, kayaks or windsurfing equipment.



All of our packages include accommodation in one of our beautiful beach houses. Included in the accommodation package are a cook, housekeeping and laundry service. Check out the pics below to get an idea of only how beautiful our house there is!
