Vela Lesson Programs

We put great emphasis on a safe, proper, and efficient teaching method—professional courses taught by certified kite instructors.
We teach mostly private lessons, but also group lessons of not more than two students per instructor. Thanks to these private classes or small groups, we can assure customized instruction and quality teaching during the lessons.
The wind is side shore to side-offshore from the right. During the winter, the winds are dominated by fronts moving through the northern Caribbean, giving cycles of strong wind days followed by a period of lighter conditions. The trade winds return in March for more consistent conditions that last until October. The summer offers the best wind conditions but smaller waves than winter and spring. On most days, the reef protects the beach from larger waves.

Why kitesurfing? Mainly because it’s fun!
Maybe the most important point of all. Gliding over the water, practicing new tricks, the sense of achievement, sessions with good friends … do I need to say more? Sure you can have a lot of fun in the gym too. But (I used go to the gym regularly!) it’s not the same kind of fun: On the one hand it’s the kind of sport itself, on the other hand all the things around kitesurfing – places, lifestyle, being one with nature and the elements and much more. I promise!
