Kitesurfing lessons Boracay and the Philippines
We offer everything kitesurf related here in the Philippines from beginner courses, Pro camps to ultimate kite-safaris. We are based on Boracay Island and Union Beach, as this is the most convenient to live and access all the 7107 Islands the Republic has to offer. Boracay is the perfect place for those of you who are traveling with families or non kiting partners. This tropical paradise has everything to offer from arguably some of the finest white sand beaches in the world, fine dining to every conceivable tourist activity you would expect from any major world wide tourist Mecca. However we understand and would advise against those looking for solitude and complete getaways from the stress of the day to day grind, and are just looking to EAT, SLEEP, KITE! So we also offer wave camps in the remote North of the country, a perfect reef break with strong winds that has been likened to the Hawaii of Asia, very remote beautiful place, truly be in touch with nature watch the sunset while enjoying the catch of the day. For those looking for flat water, kite wave and surfing we also run trips in the South, a world class surf town with some amazing undiscovered kiteboarding.
