Nonsuch Bay’s crystal clear waters are a perfect location for kitesurfing, one of the best in the Caribbean if not the best. Tuition, equipment and support for kitesurfing and kiteboarding are offered by 40knots Kitesurfing and Windsurfing School.
IKO certified instructors (International Kiteboarding Organization, www.ikointl.com), up-to-date equipment, instructors using inflatable boats, the latest teaching methods and perfect conditions guaranty quality of the highest standards and the ideal environment for kitesurfing of all abilities.
Thanks to many years of experience at Nonsuch Bay and around the world 40knots has developed a highly effective and professional methodology for its kitesurfing courses and instruction.
The kitesurfing area of two square miles is inside Nonsuch Bay and since it is on the windward side of Antigua, behind a barrier reef and with a launching point from a sandy beach at the mouth of the bay, kitesurfers maximise time on the water. The instructors provide constant support and guidance from inflatable boats and all this is accessed directly from the Nonsuch Bay Resort waterfront. Forget road transfers to the sailing area, long and exhausting walks on the beach, temperamental radio helmets or instructors shouting from miles away... the sailing school is based directly in the resort and 40knots instructors can always be close to you on the water.
40knots offers trial lessons, full beginner and intermediate courses, private and group lessons, equipment rental and support for kitesurfers using their own equipment.
