About us – passion for kitesurfing

“Water sport is our passion. Flapping flags, rustling leaves and the scent of the sea makes our hairs stand on end. We are wind junkies. You can become one as well!

It is our goal to ‘infect’ you with the kite virus. The kite virus relaxes, destresses and ‘unplugs’. You will feel the power of the kite and the rushing water beneath your feet. You won’t think of anything anymore and will feel intense happiness. Isn’t is what we are all looking for?

We want you to experience this fantastic feeling. Actually, it has become our core-business. With 10 years’ of experience (actually more, as we have been practising wind-/water sports for 25 years now) we have set the course! Kitesurf lessons will change your life. As soon as you hear, notice or feel wind, your hairs will stand on end as well! Believe it or not.– Roel Oude Avenhuis
