At Punta Cana Kitesurfing School you will learn everything you need to go kitesurfing in just 1-3 days!
The school is located on the beach at Cabeza de Toro in Punta Cana, which is an ideal place with good wind and ocean conditions. The gear they use is the best in the industry – Duotone & Crazyfly!
Our instructors are certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) and they will teach you all the kitesurfing skills and techniques! The instructors have more than 23 years of experience between them – so you’ll be in great hands!
When you graduate, you will receive an official IKO Certification vCard, which will be registered on the IKO website (www.ikointl.com). With your IKO certification, you can also rent equipment from other locations and go surfing on your own. Should you decide to take your kite surfing to another level, you can also build on your skill level in the future.
