A great experience! Within 3 days Ari taught me the basics of kiteboarding. During the whole time I felt very safe and at the end I was able to ride my first meters. The kahuna kitesurf school did everything to make us feel comfortable. Thank you!

Great teaching in relaxed and welcoming environment I was a little rusty since my first kitesurfing lessons last year and Kahuna was the perfect spot to take it up again. The surfhouse with its chilled vibe has everything you need, while the instructors are clearly passionate about getting you to ride -safely - at your own pace. The genius matting leading straight down to the shoreline means easy access to the water and no long treks to start lessons. The huge bay also allows you to progress as a learner without the stress of getting in the way of the pros: the teaching area is clearly defined. Arry was a very patient instructor with plenty of tips and tricks for a nervous newbie, tailoring my lessons so that I was challenged every time but never out of my comfort zone. Will definitely be back next season!

Home Base Cyprus - Kahuna Surfhouse Great Kit- Center - I was looking and comparing but I am sure i made the best choice for Cyprus. It is might not the best center for beginners, as there are stones and only a short sandy loop, thus you have to walk a lot with the kite along the shore. BUT - this is great training on the other hand. The owners (Angie & Elias) are great people they love what they are doing and Arry the instructor is a very fine guy. A great place - you must visit once you like to diet in Cyprus.

I have been super satisfied We attended a family training (me and my 2 daughter) and the school organization, and the instructor in particular have been amazing in supporting and challanging all of us. During the 5 days training, we have been able to learn how to control the kite, and succesfully how to stand up on the board and make small indipendent runs. I have to say that the instructor was not only very professional in teaching all technical suggestions in detail, but very able to support our efforts especially when motivation was going down to to some initial difficulties. A sincere compliments to all the school team for making it a very unique experience,

Kite surfing beginner course Fantastic tutoring - very clear instructions at every point with constant safety reminders. Arry, my instructor, made the course easy for me and I’m now hooked on the feeling of riding the board once I’d manage to water start! He was a great instructor. The school in Kereos is in a fantastic spot and has a friendly, welcoming vibe. I loved the experience and want to go back for more.

Great Place, friendly and knowledgeable instructor I thoroughly enjoyed my kitesurfing course at Keros and came away really pleased that I had made a sudden decision to change my windsurfing course to kitesurfing. Everyday we were picked up from our hotel promptly and dropped back again. The location was brilliant and I felt safe at all times. My instructor Ari explained everything thoroughly and clearly giving good reasons why we were carrying out each step. He made sure I was competent at every stage before we moved on and was extremely encouraging throughout. There was a real focus on safety and it was a well equipped and well run set up. I look forward to my next visit.

Awesome experience I took lessons at two schools in the Cook Islands, Aitutaki Kite School and Kitesup in Rarontonga. The instructor at Aitutaki did a good job explaining the basics but the emphasis on kite control at Kitesup was amazing. My instructor provided information related to assessing the quality of wind and how the wind interactions with structures and the natural environment. He was extremely patient and empathetic to the frustrated beginner and kite control down into very basic ideas that were easy to apply. Would highly recommend.
