The Team at Kite Lounge is always full of fun and assistance. It doesn’t matter if the wind takes a break. They’ll still hang out doing fun and crazy things to fill the days in the Caribbean paradise.
When the wind kicks in, the beach is busy with lessons on how to manage this incredible sport. If you already know how to stay on the board with the kite in the air, these guys can easily teach tricks or waveriding on an advanced level as well.
