How much wind do we need to kitesurf?
We have different kite sizes so we can go with any wind from 13 knts (25 km/hs) on. Best season is the Winter! Although we windy days all year round.
Do I need to have any prior skills or experience?
No prior experience is required for our beginner lessons. However, you need to know how to swim and be comfortable in the water and all other watersport skills will help you speed up the learning process.
Where is Savannah Sound?
Savannah Sound is in between Governors Harbour and Rock sound, and it is the best place to kitesurf on Eleuthera due to its location on the Atlantic side (predominant winds). It is a super safe place with flat water, shallow beach and protection of the Windemere island in front - apart from its astonishing beauty and wildlife!
How much does a lesson cost?
We have different packages of 3 or 5 lessons and we offer private and dual lessons. A single private lesson cost $250 and a lesson is usually 2.5 hours! We are a non-profit organization and all the income we make will go to teaching sailing and other water sports to the children of Eleuthera.
Kitesurf, Windsurf or WingFoil?
This is an ongoing discussion, and like skiing vs. snowboarding, there is one best than the other. The main difference is on the time you need to get up on a board. On a Windsurf you will be standing right away, while kitesurfing you'll need at least 6 hs... Now, after those 6 hs, the progress is really quick, while getting good at windsurfing takes way longer!
Is it SAFE?
We have IKO certified instructors who will make your experience enjoyable and safe at the same time. You'll be wearing life jackets and helmet at all time and all the gear is check and rechecked after every session.
At the same time, our location (inside a bay, flat water, with onshore winds) makes it extra safe. Worst case scenario, you'll have to walk back along the long and beautiful beach with some sand in your hair.
Can children take kitesurfing lessons?
We generally recommend kitesurfing for participants aged 12 and above. Younger participants should be assessed individually to determine if they meet the necessary physical and cognitive requirements. we do have smaller kites, shorter lines and safety gear for children!
How many lessons do I need to take?
The number of lessons needed depends a lot per person. We offer packages with different lesson counts. Beginners often start with a series of 3 to 5 lessons, but some may require more. Our instructors will guide you on your progression. (In general, people can start practicing on their own after 5 lessons if you are in an easy and safe spot with someone helping to launch and land and keep a distant eye)!
Can I bring my own equipment?
You're welcome to bring your own kitesurfing equipment if you have it. Our instructors can help you assess its suitability for your skill level and weather conditions.
What if there's no wind?
Kitesurfing requires sufficient wind to be enjoyable and safe. If wind conditions are not suitable during your scheduled lesson, we will reschedule or offer alternatives.
