Learn to Kiteboard on Long Bay
When it comes to kiteboarding, Turks and Caicos is considered one of the world's best places to learn the sport thanks to shallow, warm water and steady winds. Established in 2006, KiteProvo is the original, longest running and largest kiteboarding school in The Turks and Caicos. Located on Long Bay, which is famous for its calm, easy to stand in, and gorgeous hued turquoise water, this is the perfect place to learn the basics. What's great about KiteProvo, however, is the quality of the instructors (they each teach an average of a thousand lessons over the 10-month season!). Friendly and patient, they offer a dynamic approach to teaching that helps you learn without getting frustrated – you'll learn first on the beach, for instance, and then progress to the water.
Once you have the hang of the sport, consider taking one of the boat led kiteboarding adventures to surrounding spots around the island for a more remote experience. Kite rentals are also available.
