The kite surfing conditions on Zanzibar are suitable for all levels. From beginners to hardcore kitesurf experts. The best kite months are January to mid-February, June and July, when the El Nino and El Nina blow through the surf village of Paje. Often you have a minimum of 12 knots which increases in the afternoon to 16 knots with high tide. The water temperature is above 24 degrees, all year round so you can definitely leave your wetsuit at home! Zanzibar also has more beautiful kite surfing spots that are waiting and being discovered. Downwinders along the reef, where we kite along with dolphins. Wave kiting on the best waves in Zanzibar and trick clinics in beautiful lagoons and the most beautiful palm beaches around the island of Zanzibar. Discover the surprises of the kite surfing island of Zanzibar. With low-tide, you will find a beautiful lagoon excellent for flat water freestyle action in front of our guesthouse, but certainly also perfect for enthusiastic kitesurf beginners. Zanzibar is surrounded by smaller islands, especially on the south side of the island. The Blue Safari is a beautiful trip and experience of Zanzibar. You sail to a beautiful sandbar with a local boat through a dolphin-rich area. The perfect kite surfing spot!

Your Host: Felix

Member since January 2020

Felix is your host for this experience and will provide you with all the information needed.

In 2005 my kite adventure started at Workum, after a kite lesson with friends I was addicted. As soon as I saw the leaves on the trees move everything went aside and I had to go straight to the water. I learned my first tricks at my home spot De Lemmer. After training a winter in Brazil with friends in 2009, I visited several European kite tours with good results and the national events here in the Netherlands were also always fun! Traveling, kiting and teaching are my three passiones in life and I am happy that I can turn my passion into my work. I have been teaching kite lessons since 2012 at various locations around the world! Now that I have finished my High Hotel School training, I am ready to make your KiteActive holiday a legendary success!
