        Awesome Kiteboarding School

        I have wanted to learn how to kiteboard for a really long time, so I booked a 3 day course with Riko and I loved it! He is a great instructor with the best kiteboarding equipment on the market. He did a perfect job keeping the lesson at my level. I never felt bored, and I also didn’t feel overwhelmed. I’m really happy I booked my lesson here.

        Very Helpful & Felt Safe

        I did my first rental ever with Accrokite and it was great! They never leave you alone with the equipment, very helpful and felt safe which is most important when you're on your own for the first time.

        The Location Is Idyllic

        This was my first experience Kiteboarding and I did the 3-day 6-hour beginner course. I can't imagine a better place to pop my kiteboard cherry. The equipment is top notch. The location is idyllic. The instructors are all amazing. I had Fat as my instructor and he has the perfect mix of patience and experience to maximize my learning experience. By the end of my 6-hr lesson I was comfortable with the kite and riding in both directions. Riko and Antoine are also amazing instructors, I saw them interacting with students throughout my stay and they were happy to have me tag along to several local spots for partying after hours.
