How much wind do we need to kitesurf?
We have different kite sizes so we can go with any wind from 12 knts (25 km/hs) on. Best season is the Winter! Although we usually have wind all year round.
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), flat water, shallow beach - apart from its astonishing beauty and wildlife!
Kitesurf or Windsurf?
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 5 hs... Now, after those 5 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 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 be walking back to the beach with some sand inside your shirt!
