Kitesurfing School News

One of the things that makes Watamu, Kenya's top kitesurfing destination is the diverse range of conditions provided by the different locations in and around the area.

Sandbars with glassy flat water, knee to waist deep lagoons and pumping swell all serve to make Watamu Kenya's leading kitesurfing destination due to its diversity. In addition to this fantastic range of locations the wind is notoriously stronger in the area compared to the rest of the

From instructing kitesurfing to competing in events, numbers of females have been relatively low when compared to males. Although in recent years the tide seems to be turning (excuse the pun!)   Here in Watamu and particularly over the last year we have seen a big shift in the number of women participating in the sport. We have a great

After dating an avid kitesurfer for 9 years you would assume I would be a pretty good kitesurfer myself right….. well think again. How about if said boyfriend has been a kitesurfing instructor as long as I’ve known him – surely I should be fairly competent right …… hmmmmm not so much. Well surely moving to Kenya 3 years ago to set up a kitesurfing school with him would have been motivation to learn right?? Yeaaaahhh, ummm well, time just kind of got away from me. Well finally all those students & kiters who come through

Fishing in Watamu has always renowned for being fantastic.  This is due to the great diversity of fishing opportunities available.  It is one of the very few places where three types of Marlin, Sailfish, Broadbill Swordfish and Shortbill Spearfish are all available. Last year in particular put Watamu on the map with its first 1000lb Marlin caught on Ol Jogi (skippered by Stuart Simpson) out of Hemingways. This was a triumph for the destination as it was the first one caught that year world wide and only the second caught in Kenya ever.   We are lucky to
