Learning to kitesurf is fun and can be fast if compared to other watersports. Every person, depending on their abilities and previous experience, will learn at a different pace. Our instructors offer personalized teaching, adapting lessons to suit your progression.

Instructors are internationally certified, following a methodology to assure safety and efficiency in all lessons. Progression includes learning kite control and riding your way into being an independent kitesurfer.

Typical progression kiteboarding in Barbados:

  • 0 – 3 hours: Safety, set-up and kite control! This is taught at the beach. You’ll learn to prepare the gear by yourself, safety systems in case of an emergency, and how to fly the kite with confidence and control. We normally spend between 2-3 hours depending on your needs.
  • 3 – 5 hours: Body dragging and water time! This means you’ll practice flying the kite in the water without the board, as well as moving in different directions in the water using the kite. This step is key to continue to practice kite control and to learn how to rescue your board when you lose it in the water.
  • 5 – 8 hours: Now it gets real! We call this step the water start. After you learn to ride with the board we”ll teach you to stop, turn and go upwind in a controlled way. We’ll also teach you other safety procedures such as the self-rescue.

“I’ve been trying to kitesurf for a few years but this year going to Barbados I actually learnt how to kitesurf thanks to Caro and Andrea!! The clinic was just perfect, not only did I get to kitesurf in Barbados with people that know the place, they are also very good instructors. You always feel comfortable on the water with them! Another good thing about the clinic is that you get to try yoga (with a fab yoga teacher) and even do surf. Barbados is such a lovely kiting spot, even for beginners as me, if you only have the support of good instructors like Caro and Andrea. I can only say one thing! If you have the opportunity to go, GO!!! You will have a fantastic time.”

“I have been fortunate enough to kite two seasons with the KiteSirens (lovingly known as Dr Dre and Caro) and loved every second of it. Andrea will give you the push and encouragement you need, she’s always the first to drop in on a bomb set and embodies the idea that a women can do anything a man can. Carolina will make sure you have all the basics covered before you tackle that intimidating reef crossing for the first time and will always be the first person to kite up when things go astray. The kite sirens have your back ladies. And when the road to progress leaves you doing the walk of the shame, they also have rum.”

“Andrea has done a great job! At any time optimistic and really professional, very involved and a perfect way to rebuild me up at any time! Great experience and a fantastic time!!!!!”

Kay Strellow

“I’ve spent two week learning this sport and it’s been fantastic, I’ve made new friends and I’ve had a great time, though I found it difficult at the start. I’m very thankful to Kitesirens for this opportunity! :D”

“I have taken many courses but my experience with the Kite Sirens in Barbados was the best. Great instruction from two very talented and competent young women who are passionate about their sport. While providing clear and concise instruction, they made the experience fun and exciting.”

Brian Walker

“Andrea and team run a tight kiteboarding school, and I was lucky to learn with them in Barbados. By the end of the first day I felt confident with controlling the kite at noon, and power stroking, and by the second day I was able to power stroke and make figure-8’s with the kite, and improved greatly on being able to keep the kite steady while I wasn’t looking at it. Andrea was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. I’m stoked to keep kiting after this, and continue my journey to being a kiteboarder. I only wish I had more time on the beach with them! Andrea went above and beyond to make the lessons work for me, and I could tell she genuinely wanted me to succeed. Thank you Andrea, and thank you KiteSirens.”

“One of the best decisions I’ve made was to take kiteboarding lessons in Barbados. I have nothing but good things to say about my instructor Andrea Rabasa. She is very professional, patient, and informative. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is interested in this sport.”

“It was my first course in Kite Surfing and definitely not the last one ! I will definitely recommend this course to any person looking for sensations and fun! Moreover, beyond the fact that this sport is fun, athletic and challenging the coaches are awesome! Always smiling and willing to help you and make you progress. I had Andrea as a personal coach making my experience even better. She was always pushing me to go further even when I was not that confident, making me progressing faster. Moreover, she has a very patient temper, and she is really good at explaining and educating, making yourself feeling safe and secure. Since coaches are, I think, the most important part in learning or improving, I’ll, without doubt recommend IKO training as they are serious, competent and qualified. Thanks again girls!”

Barbados

Barbados is one of the top kitesurfing destinations in the Caribbean. It has conditions suited for different types of kitesurfers including freestylers, freeriders and wave riders. The main spots are located on the southeast of the island, enjoying consistent trade winds normally ranging between 15-25 knots. Silver Rock and Long Beach are the two popular choices. Winds are usually easterly and very consistent in both strength and direction. Wind direction is usually side onshore to cross shore. During special times of the year (if you're lucky you'll get the local intel!), wind blows more from the south, opening it up to downwinders to the south coast. The water sports community on the island is very close knit, with the majority of locals kiting together, watching out for each other and briefing newcomers on the ins and outs of the spots. You can choose to enjoy fun kickers, or venture out further to find epic clean waves. Kiteboarding in Barbados has it all! As an added bonus, the kite spots are just a few minutes' drive from the airport and close to many facilities. It's the perfect combination to score an adventurous trip on a Caribbean island, while having comfort and convenience at your shoreline.
