XXL Team SUP

Overview
The rental of an XXL SUP is completely new to Kenya. It is a great way to do something active in a small group, yet still be private for yourselves. The SUP challenges balance, your upper body strengths as well as your leg muscles. Teamwork is an absolute must!

My wife & I took the 6 hrs windsurfing course at H2O Extreme last week. Moses & Omar are excellent coaches. Moses has been teaching for the last 17 years. He is a "pole pole" coach. He was very patient & focused on teaching the terminology & practical guidance. By the third day, we could windsurfer slowly on our own. Fantastic experience.

I took a kite-surfing beginners course at H2O and loved everything about it. The team is extremely welcoming - instructors are serious and professional. Everyone seems to be cheering for you as you learn your first steps, it's very encouraging! The beach is perfect for learning and simply beautiful. The school is set up next to a cute beach bar with loads of vegetarian and healthy eating options, with a lively atmosphere. I would highly recommend this place to beginners like me (and everyone else), as it gets you started on the right foot!!

Hello mcristiani, Thanks for taking the time and reviewing your experience with us. We are stoked to hear, that you loved the kitesurfing course at our school. Our team of instructors, consisting of 3-5 IKO certified instructors, work very professional to pass on their passion for the sport. Since December 2019 the management of our beach bar & restaurant has changed offering a wide selection of food and drinks with a friendly and quick service! The Salty Squid is a chilled place to hang out and should definitely be on your bucket list whilst visiting Diani. Once again we are glad about your recommendation and looking forward to welcoming you back in the future. Warm regards, Kathi & Team H2o

I was staying at Kenyaways and used the facilities and storage of H2O. Well storage was fully booked already as it’s very limited so I got a shelf further back to use. Infrastructure (shower,pumps) is provided, the beachboys help you start and land. All fine till it comes to putting your kite in the shade - the only shady spot is up the stairs between palmtrees where getting the kite trough is difficult (the beachboys help if they are available tho) - a beachtent would be way more convenient. The biggest downside at this station is they still rely on a kayak to rescue. no boat- so if you are in trouble you gotta wait for them to arrive for quite a few minutes. I wish for them that there won’t ever be a accident which could have been solved faster with a boat. As I stayed another week further south to a different kite school I can compare them. There is bigger storage, better service, less crowded and they have a boat (kitemotion) so not hard to tell which of the two I would recommend if you have the choice

Dear isamathis, Many thanks for taking the time and reviewing your time at Kenyaways and H2o. We are sorry to hear, that our center couldn't match your standards and expectations. Our beach spot is very popular and therefore we get many people storing, renting, learning or just kiting for the day with us, especially during Christmas and New Year's time. The storage facilities we have include 7 very spacious lockable closets and 6 storage boxes. We recommend to reserve a space prior to arrival! Our beach crew is super helpful with bringing the kites up and down for you and even with packing the kites for you at the end of the day. All it needs is to either ask one of our crew members or me, the manager of the center. A tent on the beach is not an option for us as the water comes all the way up to the wall with the high tides. So far we never had any complaints about the service our team offers to independent kiters and we truly believe, that our crew is doing a great job considering the amount of people we have coming through. Luckily everybody has a choice and if you felt in better hands at a different center, then that is not a problem for us. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Diani. Kind regards, Kathi & Team H2o

Diani Beach, Kenya1 contribution
Truly amazed by the H2O team. Combine a great beach, wide and safe, steady trade winds, with a professional (there's some welcome German safety and discipline, and very professional management), up-to-date equipment that is well maintained, very competent beach staff ready to launch and land kites, and when necessary, assist at sea...While we are experienced kiters, our 16 year old was up and riding within days (thanks Leticia), and the 10 year old had a great intro. Combine this with Kenyan hospitality at (Kenyaways), one of the nicest places we've stayed in Diani. Too much sun? check out the shaded freshwater pool. Accommodating staff, and an excellent restaurant. Check out the restaurants next door too (Sails and Blue Marlin). What are you waiting for? We will be backkkkk!

Dear brierson, Thanks you so much for taking the time and reviewing your kitesurfing experience at our center. We're a thrilled to hear, that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you will be visiting us again in the future. It was a pleasure having your family around! Diani Beach definitely is one of the top locations world wide for kitesurfing. Even if you are still a bit unexperienced, there is really not much to worry about. The wide beaches combined with steady trade winds make it easy at any level... At H2o we exchange the kite gear every year to make sure, that the gear is up date according to the latest standards on the market and our instructors and beach crew members make sure to maintain the equipment as good as possible in the harsh conditions (heat, sun, sand). We are proud to be working with a team of super experienced instructors (min. IKO level 2), who are able to adapt to each student's level and needs easily. Thanks again for your kind words and hopefully see you soon, Kathi & the H2o team

We hope you keep on practising in the future and maybe also come back to visit us in our paradise again. Thanks again and all the best, Kathi & Team H2o
