Where to kitesurf in the Caribbean
The kite spot of Green Island in Antigua: flat water and constant winds all the year around
Go to the Pickup Point Map.
We are often asked why we came to Antigua and our answer is always the same: are there any better places for a kitesurfing school?
The Caribbean, at first, is a magic place in the world, you can wear t-shirt and shorts all the year around, happy people, safe environment, tourism related with sailing and water-sports enthusiast in general.
Antigua, more than any other island, has a very strong connection with sailing, with lots of regattas scheduled during the winter season and important harbours that can berth the biggest yacht in the world.
The real cherry on the cake is Nonsuch bay: a huge water playground, open to the East where the prevailing winds are blowing from. A bay that is completely protected from the ocean’s swell by a corral barrier offering flat water conditions no matter how strong is the wind.
The launching spot is on the north shore of Green Island, at the mouth of Nonsuch Bay, an unspoiled and private island, reachable only by boat.
The spot, even during the peak season, is never crowded as we limit the numbers of kiters on the beach, making sure that it remains safe and exclusive.
Reserve your Boat ride in advance and enjoy one of the best kites spot in the Caribbean!
The 40knots centre is located inside the fabulous Nonsuch Bay Resort, a welcoming and relaxing resort on the east coast of Antigua.
The Resort is particularly suitable for families with children, with lots of sport and fun activity for every age.
Nonresident guests are welcome in the Resort to take part to the 40knots activities as well as to use the restaurant, bar and the sailing dinghies.
So, what are you waiting for? Join us in Antigua on your next holidays, we’ll make sure that it will be a truly special time.
You’ll find the spot you are dreaming for and the people to share it with.
This is what we mean when we say turquoise water
Amazing kite school
40knots is an amazing kite school! Super professional with great teachers.
The spot is perfect and the team takes really good care of you! Also I never saw any other school where the students learned to kite that fast!
They go out with the students with boats so the students never loose time by walking back upwind on the beach and it’s super safe! Almost everybody was ready for the board after the 1st lessons, and that is really, really fast as everybody knows who tried it once...;)
If you want to learn kite surfing there is no better place to go than there!
Excellent Kite Surfing school
Husband had completed basic kite surfing course in UK and was wanting to progress further in warmer waters. He booked two sessions 2 1/2 hours each with an instructor and progressed massively in these sessions.
Excellent one on one instruction from boat in safe waters with good breeze. Friendly accommodating staff. Perfect environment in which to develop your skills. Highly recommended.
40Knots and the team
Nothing short of AWESOME! I stayed a couple of days in Antigua and went out with 40Knots for a few kite surf sessions! The team working there is very friendly and super helpful. The spot green island is a hidden away gem with flat water and a pretty cool little beach setup to chill and have your afternoon lunch at. Honestly If I was ever again in Antigua or even on another island near by, I'd head straight over there!
Thanks guys for making this kite trip on Antigua on for the books. 10/10!!
First class operation
I am an experienced kite surfer so really just needed to rent the gear and have a boat ride to the island. I had my family with me and was able to bring them with me to the private beach which was great for everyone. Corrado helped me set up the gear and hung out on the beach while I get a few hours kiting in. Transportation was easy with their pick up and drop off via boat. Great communication with Max and the team while I was arranging everything. Highly recommend 40 Knots if you are learning or experienced and what to enjoy a great day kiting in Antiqua.
Love 40knots, super professional and fun people. I had instructors Jamal for my first 2 lessons and then Buju for my 3rd, both were fantastic and couldn't recommend them enough! I'll be back this weekend to start working on my transitions, thanks team!
Amazing location and super friendly staff – great experience !!!
Myself and some of my friends spent a few days kitesurfing with 40 knots at green island. The location is perfect! It’s flat and constantly windy and the water, beautiful and warm!
Kiting here was amazing ! In the 3/4 days we were really able to progress. We just paid for the boat out to the island and kited on our own but the staff were always there to help with setting up and launching and to give pointers.
I can’t wait to go back again! 100% recommend
