A World class kiting Destination

The best kiting in Zanzibar can be found on the South-East Coast. This coastline is a world class kiting location for all riders, with some of Zanzibar's most popular beaches, gorgeous turquoise lagoons, super flat conditions and consistent on-shore winds. A holiday in Zanzibar is an unforgettable experience, with so much to see and do. On calm days, explore the island's culture and nature, and on windy days, rip up and down the coastline amidst Swahili dhow boats, fishermen and friendly locals.

Zanzibar ProKite is conveniently located on the beach, providing you with unrestricted access to Jambiani's beautiful beach and idyllic lagoons. We offer a variety of courses for all skill levels, as well as rental equipment and IKO certified instructors with years of teaching experience and in-depth knowledge of kiting in Zanzibar.

"....friendly and above all very professional!!"

I contacted the school by WhatsApp, they were super responsive. I was able to have a class the next day! Dream spot with few people! Excellent return to kitesurfing with a 2 hour course. Niko and Jules are very welcoming, friendly and above all very professional!! Very good advice! Given the schedule of my course, we used the boat in relation to the tide! Which allows you to feel safe and be alone in the world 🏝😃. It was great! Headphones and radio to take the course and get live advice 👍🏻 The equipment is of great quality, and the lessons are by boat or on foot depending on the tide. They speak French (English too) and it’s great to have a course and advice for this sport in their language! Issa was a great boat driver!

"Very professional and super friendly"

Thanks to Nico (Manager) for his welcome, his advice and his kitefoil demos! Very professional and super friendly. New or very recent Fone equipment for rental. Very professional team and available even for after parties! Magnificent spot less crowded than in Paje (almost alone to ride!) although a little choppy at low tide. Stay in June 2022.

"Great experience!"

I have had 5 hours of coaching with Nico, the manager of the school; being an independent rider, i managed to do a few kite loops, improve my transitions and ride toe side. Nico is a great instructor, serious but fun, making the experience very pleasant and smooth. The spot is super; vast and shallow lagoon, perfect for learning new tricks. The school uses radio for communication with the riders and a boat to help you go upwind if needed. It is also conveniently located on the beach, next to my hotel (Casa del Mar). Highly recommended!!

"One week incredible kite surfing holiday"

We spent one week at Nur Beach Resort and went out on the water everyday with Prokite. Niko (the manager and instructor) and Jules (instructor) were incredibly helpful, friendly and welcoming. We were total beginners. My boyfriend does a lot of wind sports and I was initially scared of handling the kite. We did the beginners course over 3 consecutive days and Jules and Niko were able to cater the course to our very different learning ability so that we both learned at our own pace, in a way that suited each of us and both got out of the water and were able to enjoy. We then continued with courses separately everyday to continue improving. We also took wing foil classes and we're still on the water a few hours before heading to the airport. When we were not in the water Niko and Jules were always there to answer our questions, help us improve by providing useful guidance and making sure we got the best out of our experience with ProKite. I am a slow learner with a number of fears and I never had such a great time learning a new sport - I felt totally safe. The lagoon is such an incredible place to learn. The fact that ProKite has a speed boat also means you don't have to wait for low tide to get into the water and the teaching via walkie talkie is also a great help to make sure you properly hear all the advice as they walk you through every exercise, move and ride on the water to avoid mistakes and harness your potential. We can't recommend them enough and we look forward to coming back next year!!

"Professional and safe teaching for all the family"

Niko and team gave us great beginners course at Jambiani beach. Unfortunately the weather was a bit hit and miss and we missed a day but after 2 sessions we were just about up on the boards. Standard was clearly step above other operators on the beach with radios and full safety gear as standard. Kids will definitely kite again - parents may stick with old school windsurfing.

"Great school with professional instructors and high safety standards!"

I highly recommend Zanzibar ProKite school. Professional staff, certified instructors, and high safety standards. You have a lot of fun with this school, but at the same time you always feel safe and taken care of, before and after the kite lessons. The spot is also amazing. It's way less crowded than Paje, the school has their own boat so you can be totally alone in the water without other schools/students getting in your way. Best experience of all the schools we have been to. Huge thanks to Nico, Hassan and Augustine!

"Friendly and professional kitesurfing school"

My partner and I stayed in the Nur Beach hotel for a week and enjoyed developing our kite skills with Nico and Augustine at Prokite. We had both kitesurfed previously in Fuerteventura and Rhodes but were still very much at the repetitive board starting phase, achieving occasional rides!

The location is excellent. I would recommend staying at Nur as you could stroll from your bungalow to the kitesurfing centre in about 10 seconds, so it was a very relaxed way to arrive at a lesson! Jambiani is a safe, flatwater lagoon which was amazing as a beginner for lessons. I would recommend it as somewhere to start learning to kite. Very strong wind and waves can feel a bit intimidating as a beginner, so the conditions here were perfect to get used to the kite and the board. There were also no obstructions (except for the seaweed farms) to worry about, and there aren't too many other kiters around to bump in to.

The team use radios to communicate with you whilst you are in the water so you feel safe and well instructed at all times. I was watched more closely at Prokite than I have been in other centres. Unfortunately, I was stung by a bluebottle jellyfish during one of my lessons in the lagoon (which was pretty horrendous)! Fortunately, my instructor Augustine realised what had happened and within about 20 seconds my kite was taken off me and I helped into the boat. After deciding I was in too much pain to continue the lesson I was taken back to shore and had upmost sympathy from the team for the rest of the day/week! I felt that in some centres the instructors would have moaned/complained that i'd aborted the lesson, but Nico and his team genuinely seemed to care that I was in pain. I returned to the water 48 hours later, but in full length leggings and rash vest for my next lesson!

Overall my competence and confidence at kite surfing improved significantly throughout my lessons with Prokite, and I went from board starting and travelling about 2m and then sinking (!), to starting to ride upwind in both directions and starting to attempt sliding transitions. Augustine was an excellent, patient and gentle tutor who I would recommend to anyone. We had three enjoyable lessons and he has inspired me to continue learning to kitesurf in the future.
