    Out of curiosity went to the beach to watch the Kite Surfers.
    Jen from Isla Kitesurfing approached me and patiently answered all my questions and so convinced me to take my first 1,5h lesson.
    Was fun, so I continued.
    My Instructor "Along" was great and got a lot of experience, he explained very well and analyzed what I was doing wrong, so I improved quickly.

    Staff is very friendly and multilingual.
    Booking of lessons can be done spontaneously and rescheduling is no problem if it doesn't fit your other plans on the island.

    Will come back.

    This my 4th time at School, there Christmas '2020 as could fly safely from Manila. The essence of what makes it a great place to windsurf/kite, + lessons is alive and well, the gear, the location for launching but most of all the staff under Simone's direction. I am windsurfer and even though new boards Simone keeps some older ones for those of us that like it old school - one day started with 78ltr/4.2, all rigged and waiting for me and when sail / board changes needed already anticipated by Gido waiting for me at the beach. He second generation in his family windsurfing. Low wind days great opportunity to learn Kite boarding from Alex! IF YOU CAN get there this season GO GO GO - Cannot stress how magical it is to be on the water in that sort of wind with only one other windsurfer & 10 kites, white beach not mobbed on the otherside if your partner not join you on the water. If you find yourself already on the Island - get lessons in the low wind as its the type of conditions that are outstanding for learning to kite surf and world class instruction! Anyway - not overselling just wanting anybody that HAS the opportunity to take advantage as I have no doubt crowds will return as the conditions that make it one of the best places in the world ain't going away & the School has found a way to keep all of its essentials in the face of truly criminal "rehabilitation" wrought on the beach.

    It was splendid because we were able to have the whole islands for ourselves and get to experience local island life. Travel agent was very helpful but not necessary as you can contact his primary boatman directly at melaselespinosa@gmail.com

    Habagat is a great place to learn how to kiteboard. Really great instructors and friendly faces all around! Winnie was great to work with, and Kleng was an awesome instructor. It was my first time kiteboarding and was so enjoyable, would definitely recommend.

    Joined El nido sailing for their Sunday Regatta and had an incredible experience! We sailed to a private beach and back. Super experience for both experience and novice sailors. Highly recommend!

    Awesome time! Madis was great, let us loose while teaching our mate that was new at kiting. Definitely recommend if you are in the area, new or experienced!

    Reefriders run by the lovely Chill is situated right in the middle of the bay. Extensive kit and really helpful staff/instructors at resonable rates. I was there for 3 weeks and it was windy everyday except just 4 days (which Chill refunded!). Severne sails on Starboard boards which is a great combo. Wind strength varied so tried lots of difference kit. Most enjoyed Carve 120l and 7/6.5m on lighter days and Kode 100l and 4.7m when is got really lively. You can stand in almost any part of the large bay area inside the reef (wear booties) and the wind is mainly onshore. The launch point for Reefriders is perfect. I did nose around other centres but they seemed mainly for kiting whereas ReefRiders does both.

    Highly recommended. Have a look on Google Earth and you can see a great view from above the bay on the East side of Boracay.

    I also recommend Niu Ohana apartments and Leventin Hotel as both are on Bolabog Beach front in the perfect spot.

    So I booked lessons in Harana surf school and it was the best decision ever. My instructor Loloy was great, he was patient and very informative. I was able to stand on a board on my first lesson which was awesome. Totally recommend.

    If ever a Koala came to Boracay to learn kitesurfing, I’m convinced Toni and Martin would get him going. I saw them getting folks on the board and doing nice turns after just a couple of days that other teachers already gave up on. It‘s the right mix of motivation and trust-building, paired with the proper chill-factor and technical know-how actually all watersport activities should go along with. If you‘re serious about learning to kitesurf, that‘s the place to go.

    Thanks to Rokas and especially to our very patient and super attentive instructor Kirill, my friend and I have had the best time learning Kitesurfing in Boracay. After our first lessons, we both got instantly hooked and we are already planning to continue to learn more and improve our kitesurfing skills with the next opportunity.
    If you are planning a trip to Boracay and are looking for a professional kiresurfing team, Mangoriders is the place to go!!!!
    SUPER HAPPY!

    Whether advanced or beginner, you won’t regret taking time to kitesurf in Siargao. The perfect lagoon just in front of Seabreeze and the professional instructors will guarantee the best time with kite!

    I was a total beginner and my instructor Andreas made it easy to take the first steps with this new hobby safely and surely 🤗 We also felt welcome to join a larger community and get to know other active people on the island.

    A big recommendation to Seabreeze for watersports and a huge thank you for the fun days!

    We spend there four days and it was great. We love that kind of cozy and authentic places, the stuff is very cheerful and helpful!

    Unfortunately, we got the tayphoon during the vacation, all the stuff helped us a lot: shared their food, moved us to other apartment and kept informing us.
    Great thanks to you all!

    Also we took some kiteboarding lessons, say Hi to coach Nikita!)

    Great Location!!
    The bungalow is right in front of the spot! For a surf session as you jump out of your bed, that's the room to get!
    The room was very clean, quiet AC, nice bathroom, cool and clean swimming pool and what a view!
    The place is very quiet and exlusive however close to most of the good restaurants and cloud 9. Finally the staff was professional, very helpfull and always smilling! Big thanks to William and Sahara :-)

    We will definitely com back ! :-)

    Ben and Rie.
