Kiteboarding

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Guanaja, Honduras has some of the best kiteboarding (kitesurfing) in the Caribbean. Warm trade winds, enhanced by a local effect in the Bay of Honduras creates great windy conditions for most the year.

The Sweet Spot is located on the NE tip of the island of Guanaja, just inside the barrier reef and small keys that dot the eastern coastline. The barrier reef protects a large bay that has shallow sandbars that are perfect for riding, and provide ideal learning conditions. Most wind comes from the east, so there is a good launch and great riding right out front of the hotel. With easy access to flat water and some rolling waves.

We offer boat-based lessons daily, using one of the many shallow, uncrowded sandbars. Perfect learning conditions, with a large downwind areas for learning to ride. For experienced riders we also do Water Taxis, Supervised Downwinders and Kite Surfaris to one of the many riding spots along the reef.

You can leave your gear at home and take advantage of our full line of Cabrinha equipment. We provide gear rental with our packages, so you can travel light. Our rent by the day if needed.
