Coconut Kite is led by a team of passionate water sportswomen. Our mission is to bring kite surfing to you and enjoy a heart-opening fun time together.  We will make sure your kite surfing trip will be a wonderful journey to enjoy, laugh, learn and relax.

Our focus is your well-being and your progress.

Teaming up to practice kite surfing, supporting each other and learning together is a great experience!

We are combining our kite camps with different complements. This includes:

  • Photography lessons after kiting or on low wind days to improve your camera skills,

  • In our Wave Experiences camp we will teach you Surfing or SUPing to improve your balance on the board and the reading of waves
  • Cooking in Tarifa with our lovely Annie who will show you different tips and tricks to healthy cuisine and Spanish style cooking

Our packages ensure an all-round bundle in locations like sunny Tarifa in Spain or the windy Danish Ringkøbing Fjord as a very close kite spot for a short trip. We like to promote enthusiasm and team spirit during our individual camps and embrace the trend of beach lovers, taking a hand full of garbage back with every visit. Because we love our beaches!

 

We would love to welcome you on BOARD!
