Eerste kitesurf les bij Kim Het was voor mij de eerste keer kitesurfen en vond het echt heel gaaf. Kim is een zeer getalenteerde en een goede instructrice en vooral ook erg gezellig als persoon. Door de tips pakte ik het snel op en hierdoor smaakt het zeker naar meer. Bedankt voor deze top dag, ga dit niet snel meer vergeten en hopelijk tot volgend jaar!

Go Kim and Awa Salu! St Joriis baai where Kim bring her students and those, like myself, wanting to surf a bit by their own offers a perfect spot for both beginners and advanced surfers. Kim has a beautiful place where she keeps a good set of equipment for rentals and she is very accomodating helping you out where needed. She is also extremely nice as a person and very good at what she does.

Best teacher ever! Kim is an awesome teacher! I had a few lessons before in the Netherlands, she quickly assessed my skill level and seamlessly continued my lessons. The thing I really like about her way of teaching is that she puts a lot of focus on why things are happening, which helped me to understand what I needed to do. The lessons weren’t only really good, we also had a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend Awu Salu kiteboarding and especially Kim as a teacher to anyone.

Outstanding care for customers! While we were not able to do the activity due to low winds the day we arrived at port, we would still give this excursion a 10 star if possible! The tour guide was so accommodating and flexible to our vacation needs since we were traveling on a cruise ship, and always had a timely response. When we return back to Curaçao, we will definitely book this excursion again so we can experience kiteboarding and all its glory! Thank you for your amazing costumer service!!

The best kitesurf instructor in the Caribbean If you want the guarantee of being able to kitesurf after 3 days, then you need to have Kim as your instructor. I have had and seen many instructors but she is a one of a kind. She is unbelievable with kids and has a unique way of explaining and teaching you the sport. Plus, she has very good gear! So don’t hesitate and book her if you want to be a kiter!

Kimberly was the BEST kite-board instructor! Kimberly was FANTASTIC and fun to learn with! I recommend this course to anyone thinking about learn to kite board. It was my first time and she actually got me up on the board on the first lesson. (Spoiler alert: I didn’t stay up that long). The lesson(s) lasted about as long as I could last and she tailored everything to me and how I was progressing. Her enthusiasm was infectious and we laughed a lot during the time we had. I will seek her out exclusively when I come to Curaçao again.

Bon Bini!

Since 2017 my team and I have taught kitesurfing to many people,
from young to old, with a lot of passion, humor and care.

We hope that you too will have a great time with us!

Saludos,
Kim
