Overview
More
Kite In N E G R O S is a Kitesurfing school is based near Dumaguete, in one of the windiest area of the Philippines, where a permanent breeze is blowing, due to natural relief. It is not a well renowned spot yet, but it will become. The regularity of the wind and the absence of obstruction create a perfect location for kitesurfing and other water sports. Think about informing us prior to visit us. We could be booked or the weather could not be favorable for the activity... let's us help you to save time! Windy yours
