Kite Surfing
Kenya Mombasa
You can learn how to kitesurf in many spots around the world, but few offer the ideal conditions of Extreme Sports Café’s new partner Kenyan kitesurfing school for learning: wide beach, soft sand, protective barrier reef, no corals or rocks, cross winds and last but not least very warm water! Africa is like no other place on earth and kitesurfing there is a holiday of a lifetime! Extreme sports Café can now offer you incredible kiting conditions and a very chilled and unique type of holiday, in a new, uncrowned, exotic destination that combines great kiting conditions with a fantastic beach holiday. Extreme Sports café’s newest partner is an established Kitesurf School on the beautiful Kenya Coast -- it was actually the first school to open in East Africa 8 years ago. The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa. It is bordered by Ethiopia to the north, Somalia to the east, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest, with the Indian Ocean running along the southeast border. The country is named after Mount Kenya, a very significant landmark. Kenya has considerable land area of wildlife habitat, including the Masai Mara, where Blue Wildebeest and other bovids participate in a large-scale annual migration. The "Big Five" animals of Africa can also be found in Kenya: the lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant. Extreme Sports Café’s partner Kenyan Kitesurfing School is an established school with 9+ years of experience located on the beautiful Kenya Coastline, (In The Coast Province of Kenya) just 2 hours North of Mombasa and 30 minutes North of Malindi. Today, our partner Kenyan Kitesurfing School is the premier kitesurf spot in East Africa and is in the process of being affiliated with the BKSA (British Kitesurfing Association).. It offers incredible kiting conditions and continues to be praised by international pro riders, beginners, as well as magazines and television programs. The centre is quiet, chilled and unlike other kite spots, you won’t be fighting for space with the crowds on the water; making kiting and learning kiting much safer and more fun! The Kitesurfing centre, located on a beautiful wide beach is also part of a resort which has beautiful eco-style accommodations all set in the midst of a stunning lush location with coconut trees, palm trees, sand dunes and a handful of traditional small villages. The kitesurfing spot is blessed with the most ideal beach and wind conditions. With an average of 300 days of wind per year, at an average of 16 knots and with peaks of 18 to 25 knots the spot offers a very wide range of kiting conditions. Depending on the tides you have a daily choice, from waves to glassy flat water all in a safe bay.
