Imagine travelling to the best kitesurfing spot by boat so you can avoid all the crowds, enjoying video tuition to help to improve faster, all wrapped up in a bespoke one on one package.

The ProKite Centre in Sicily is much more than just a kite school, shop or place to stay. During your time on the island this will be your second home. The school is located right on the spot, with all the services you need to enjoy an incredible kitesurfing holiday. This is one of the safest places to learn in the world to kite, with a huge and quiet lagoon to practice. It’s a nature reserve so you won’t find much boat traffic and most of the holidaymakers are elsewhere on the island. You can also book one on one lessons with licenced professional instructors, radio communication and professional standard equipment – no matter what level you are.

Dakhla is one of the world’s best kitesurfing destinations and there is a big choice of schools. But by far the stand out is the Ocean Academy by La Tour d’Eole. The centre was created in 2017 in collaboration with Bruna Kajiya, triple kitesurfing world champion, with intensive courses aiming to get you kiting like a pro. You get access to two spots: the main freeride spot and the spot known as the ‘piscine’. Both offer flat and shallow water that’s ideal for beginners.  As the first establishment to be built on this spot, it’s well suited to both beginners and more demanding riders, with everyone completely safe and enjoying the side onshore wind.

Costa Calma, Matas Bay, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

kitesurf-costa-calma

Situated in one of the best kiting spots on Fuerteventura in Costa Calma, the focus of this school is to provide a friendly and safe environment. The clean and flat water make it a great place to progress, with a jet ski safety service making sure everyone is safe in the water. The school is located just a short walk from the R2 Sercotel beach resort, for a great combination of school and accommodation. And the cross offshore wind with no obstructions creates some glassy flat water where you can build your skills.
