Goodwinds Kitesurf Puerto RicoCurrently Open
Imagine a billowing kite propelling you forward, as the wind pushes against your back. Further and further out to sea you will be, and almost into the air! Get ready to surf and slide on the waves with Goodwinds Kitesurf, the only internationally certified kite boarding centre in the Puerto Rico.
Founded and run by Phil Morstad, a professional airline pilot, and Karla Barrera-Morstad, an ex windsurfing Olympian, the Centre’s aim is to promote their passion for this high adrenaline water sport by teaching people how to wind surf safely and with confidence. The center is the premier place in the country for kiteboard training, equipment and travel. The instructors will teach you right from the basics and then move on, until you can ride with ease yourself. You can also expect full boat support services on all board riding lessons. Exhilarating and fun, turn the ocean into your own amusement park as you flip and swivel across the seas.
- You can dive down into the deeps and swim the depths of the water or travel is smooth surface, rowing and paddle-yoga. Besides kiteboarding, the centre also teaches windsurfing, sailing, paddle boarding, surfing, snorkeling and kayaking lessons.
- Prepare yourself to play with both the elements of water and air as you strap yourself on to a giant, controllable, aerial kite and let the wind lift your body. With the help of a handlebar, you’ll be making giant leaps and maneuvering yourself mid-air! Soon, you’ll go from face-diving to grabbing massive air, all while you’re nestled in the center of a 5-star resort. You’ll learn about the windsurfing ‘window’, how to utilize the power of the wind and how to take off and land properly.
Use the blue waters as if they’re your playground, soar and surf while the sun beats down on the shining waves. At the end of your courses, you’ll be a certified, athletically gifted flying fish, flitting and floating on the water!
