Kitesurfing Antigua is located on beautiful Jabberwock Beach on the North East side of the island. It is the perfect place to learn how to kite, or to take your riding to the next level. The warm Trade Winds blow here during the months of December through May, and also during the summer months of July and August. The wind direction is usually side-on which is great for all skill levels with mostly bumb and jump conditions, perfect for launching airs. We have a few flat areas for wakestyle tricks where we have a 60 foot A- frame slider and a kicker, and when the wind is from the North (more on-shore) the shorebreak can be really fun for bashing lips as well.
Kitesurf Antigua provides quality lessons with certified instructors and the latest teaching specific equipment. Lessons should be booked well in advance (2 weeks lead time) to insure availability.
Beginner Special (4 hours, one-day introductory course)
Rates: 1 (private) US$300, 2-3 US$240
A single 4-hour "minimal" course, which is intended to give you a taste of what the sport, is all about. In this lesson, we teach you all the basics of rigging, launching and landing, kite control and body dragging. Students who advance quickly may also get to attempt water starting within the 4 hours; however, we cannot guarantee that every student will get that far. If you really want to get "into" kiteboarding, you can upgrade to the clinic course. This course is offered as a single 4-hour session (breaks will be taken as needed) and must be booked in advance. Sessions start at 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM daily. Please see chart below for prices.
The Clinic (10 hours, 2 to 3 day complete course)
Rates: US$650, 2-3 US$500
A complete “Zero to Hero” course, which caters to all levels: For beginners this course includes the Beginner Special lesson and advances them to an independent level (IKO levels 1&2). For novices the clinic serves as a "refresher course" and may also advance them to intermediate skill level. Our clinic course represents the best value and most effective way to learn. We spread the Clinic over two to three days and will try our best to work out a schedule that suits yours.
Note: We teach a maximum of 2 students per instructor for clinics. This is to ensure student safety and maximize each student’s time on the equipment.
Rates: 1-2 US $90 per student
Anything from a minimal taster course to advanced hard core. Have specific equipment setup requirements? Want advanced tuition including transitions, inverts and boosting jumps? Haven’t kited in a while and need a refresher? These lessons will cover whatever you want at a fixed hourly rate.
There is no guarantee that the goals within each lesson will be reached by every student. The goals however, are based on a typical students ability whom is in good health and very comfortable in the water. We will advance persons through the lessons only as fast as they are capable of learning. Some persons may not reach the goals and require further instruction to do so. Other persons may advance beyond the stated goals in a given lesson.
Rentals are provided as a convenience for experienced riders only. All riders will be screened, briefly on their basic skills including safety system use, rules of the road, riding location assessment, launch/landing technique, and self rescue prior to rental.
Students who have successfully reached IKO Kiteboarder Card Level 2 from KiteAntigua are also eligible to rent equipment.

Kiteboarding ROAD TRIP!
Antigua offers several other places to ride which range from butter smooth conditions to wave riding. Riding at these spots requires local knowledge as they are off the beaten path and the launches can be tricky. The local boys have been riding these spots a long time and especially relish them as there is no such thing as a crowd! Let KiteAntigua take you there.
Advanced riders only, minimum 3 people.
US $75 per person
