Bill Kraft - Kite St. Croix - was everything I was looking for: top-notch kiteboard instructor, relaxing location (Bill and Isabelle's beach cottage rental is awesome), uncrowded waters, nearby restaurants are super good, and talk to Bill about yoga/paddle boarding too. I have taken other lessons from other kiteboard schools...Bill Kraft is by far the best. He puts an ear... More

My son learned how to kite on this trip! Bill was extraordinarily patient and skilled at teaching him the basics. Bill also continues to help me in my progression as a kite surfer. He's got me jumping and getting big air now! We love Bill and his wife and appreciate their hospitality and all that they have done for us!

My only regret is that I did not try paddle boarding sooner, and I'm so glad I contacted Kite St. Croix when I finally did so! Gorgeous venue at the Chenay Bay Beach Resort where the water is calm and perfect. BTW, be careful following GPS...I used my I-phone navigation to get there and drove couple of miles right past...

Learning the sport of kitesurfing is a huge challenge and Bill could not have been a better, or more patient instructor. I felt like he was genuinely excited for me when I got the basics down and had some rides. What I particularly like is that he is teaching from a chase boat where he has a radio feed into... More

My husband is a accomplished kiteboarder and I've attempted lessons in many locations around the world but never really got it until I spent time with Bill at Kite St. Croix. His expertise is undeniable. His patience is unlimited. His setup is unreal. For nearly a week my husband and I were the only other kiteboarders around, and nothing but... More

Bill made learning something that is inherently intimidating as flying powerful kites, as easy as riding a bicycle. His equipment is in fantastic shape, and using a chase boat and radio helmets, really maximized my learning experience. I would recommend him to anyone, novice to experienced to learn from.

TripAdvisor is a great app to learn about places and activities based on the experiences of others, and to register your own experiences. I would like to be able to edit my posts to correct typos, but that does not seem to be possible.

Our 3 teenagers wanted to try paddle boarding. We scheduled a morning lesson at Chenay Bay and within 15 minutes, all three were up and doing great. We returned for a second visit later in our week and there was a significant increase in their ability and confidence even after only 2 lessons. Bill is an exceptional instructor and really... More

My husband and 10 year old son took paddle boarding lessons at Chenay Bay and loved it. They paddled all over the calm waters and saw starfish and sea turtles. They also went out on kayaks and had a great time. I was able to snorkel with my younger son so we were all together. Chenay Bay is a good... More
