Took 5 days of lessons, 3 hour semi-private. Excellent instruction! From being a beginniner and never kiteboarding, my son was able to kiteboard, control the kite, and make transitions by the end of the 5 lessons. I highly recommend Lars and his team.

Kjeldt worked with me on toeside riding and backrolls in a... More

With Jeremie as my instructor, I was kiting upwind, transitioning, riding toeside & jumping after 5 days. Jeremie was an awesome instructor; very supportive and used good judgement in how to coach...

We found Bonaire Kiteschool via recommendations from friends. We too, would like to show our appreciation of the 3 days of semi-private lessons we took. We felt welcome with Lars and our personal trainer Joyce who... More
