Learn the sport of kite surfing with the TCI’s best, fully accredited kiteboarding instructors
What’s better than kitesurfing the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean? Doing it under the eagle eyes of a team of IKO accredited instructors of course! From in-depth insider knowledge of the area gleaned from living in the TCI, right through to our extensive experience that will help you boost your own skills into the stratosphere, you’re going to want to try kiteboarding in Provo with the Big Blue Collective team.
What is IKO?
IKO, or the International Kiteboarding Organisation, provide accreditation for kiteboarding schools worldwide. They are a leading kiteboarding accreditation organisation, internationally recognised as promoting safe practices and high standards for the kite surfing industries. With IKO backing, you know that the ultimate balance of safety and fun will be waiting for you. From those first tentative steps in the sport, right through to the experienced kiteboarder, IKO helps you achieve your very best self.
IKO accredited instructors are free to keep their own individuality and unique experience, so you won’t receive a boring, cookie-cutter monologue under our instruction, either! Our own IKO accredited core team consists of five men and women, each with a passion for teaching and a deep love of the sport. They’ve got impressive chops to back up their claims to fame, too- with a long and amazing history with not only kite surfing to call their own, but a host of other athletic and water sports achievements to their names.
What is the big Blue Collective’s kiteboarding difference?
The Big Blue Collective want you to have the safest, most exhilarating experience while kiteboarding with us, both in and out of the water- and no matter your prior experience. We’ll teach you from scratch, or we’ll help you get even better. As long as you’re on the water and having safe, skilled fun, we’re glad! With over two decades in the industry and the solid backing of IKO’s standards, we’re perfectly placed to make your dreams of kiteboarding in Provo come true… and we’ll help you do so safely, effectively, and while having a blast.
You’ll never be pushed to do something you’re unhappy with, even if we have faith you can do it, and two-way communication lies at the heart of our kiteboarding instruction. Our instructors aren’t the only members of our full kiteboarding team, either, so there’s always an eagle eye and helping hand around should you need one on a Big Blue Collective activity. We’re even able to lay claim to Hope Levin and Kit Griffiths, two of the very best local kiteboarders, as our kite surfing ambassadors!
Why come kiteboarding in Provo?
The real question here is ‘why not’? Of course, there are all the benefits of learning with the most experienced kiteboarding team in the TCI, but there’s much, much more too. The Turks and Caicos seas are truly unique. The islands sit perched on a ‘shelf’ of land, which is how they can offer such calm, flat and gorgeous seas yet still provide spectacular dive sites, coral reefs and other epic vistas just waiting for you to explore. Don’t think the sheltered nature of the water means dull, flat seas either- the brisk presence of the trade winds almost year-round ensures there’s enough air-power to keep things interesting for those kiteboarding on the water.
The trade winds also provide a little cooling air for the perpetually hot temperatures, ensuring that (while the water is deliciously warm even in the morning and evening) there’s just enough breeze to keep you comfortable.
This secluded, calm atmosphere has made the Turks and Caicos a haven of natural beauty, too. From the friendly stingrays to the iguanas of Iguana Island and the many tropical birds you’ll spot in the trees, there’s a feast for the eyes wherever you turn. Add in some of the world’s most beautiful beaches (complete with powder-soft white sand) and you’re almost set for a perfect holiday in the sun.
There’s one more lure, however. The Turks and Caicos, while a popular destination well used to catering to tourists, is far less populated than many of the Caribbean islands. It’s one of the few premier tourist destinations in the world where you stand a very real chance of being able to soak in that beautiful beach view accompanied by no one else. The islands cast a magical spell anyway, but the fact you can experience it without crowds adds an extra depth to the experience.
Does this make Provo a kiteboarding dream destination? We like to think so! Blend the sparkle of the islands with our expert kiteboarding instruction and come experience it for yourself.
How do I get a slice of the kiteboarding action?
Keen to come and try this amazing sport for yourself? Then why not book a session with the Big Blue Collective while you are here in the TCI? No need to wait until you land, either. With our fully automated, easy to use online booking system. Not only does this let you plan and budget ahead, but it also allows you the convenience and peace-of-mind of being able to chat with our experienced team throughout the process- we’d love to get to know you before you take your first lesson! You can opt to book a private lesson or share with a group to keep your budget tight.
If you are already a kiteboarding fan but don’t want to drag your gear along, the Big Blue Collective is powered by the Cabrinha kite and board line, and we offer a range of rentals to suit every kiteboarder.
With Big Blue behind you, you don’t even have to worry if the wind lets us down… our No Wind, No Problem options allow you to still have a ton of fun with Stand Up Paddle Boarding, beach cruising, or any of the myriad of great activities open to you in the TCI.
Come experience kiteboarding in Provo with our accredited teaching team, and let the delights of the TCI charm you today.
