Kitesurfing is a thrilling water sport that lets you glide along the surface of the water on a kiteboard propelled by a controllable power kite. This activity pulls elements from wakeboarding, surfing, and paragliding to create an extreme sport that’s unlike any other. If kitesurfing is on your bucket list, there’s no better place to get started than at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa.

Plan Your Visit Right

St Lucia’s prime kitesurfing season is between November and July. If you want to make sure you have the best conditions possible during your visit, book a stay during these months. If you’re planning to make kitesurfing the main focus of your holiday, consider our Surf and Stay package which includes several hours of lessons with your all-inclusive stay. If you’re only interested in a taste of kitesurfing, that’s fine too! There’s plenty to keep your busy at Coconut Bay.

Get Your Feet Wet with Our Trainers

Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa’s experienced trainers are on hand to help you through your first experiences on the water. Any guest aged eight or older can enjoy a free kitesurfing taster. This brief lesson lets you fly a trainer kite on the beach so you’ll get a feel for how kitesurfing pulls you along the water.

Guests aged 16 and older can continue their training with a certified kitesurfing instructor. We offer customised courses that are designed on an individual basis to suit your level of experience. You should plan to book about 10 hours of training to get comfortable with the sport as a first timer. When you’ve mastered kitesurfing, you’ll get a certification card from the International Kiteboarding Organization.

Once you have a strong command of the sport, you can head out for your own kitesurfing adventures with our equipment rentals. Coconut Bay’s kitesurfing instructors can direct you toward our designated kitesurfing areas on the water. The Surf Shack has everything you need for kitesurfing. Rent your equipment by the hour or by the day to suit your schedule.
