I had been trying to get upwind for eight consecutive days, with little success. On the eighth day I took a lesson with radio communications from Stefan with Kitexcite. With a change to a more appropriate board and some minor adjustments to posture and kite position, I was able to get upwind relatively easily. This will make kiting much safer... More

Stefan at Kitexcite hands down was the best instructor! I was so glad to have been linked up with him for my kite surfing lessons. As i looked around, he was the only one who used walkie talkies to help his students excel with the learning process. I dont know how the others did it not having one. This alone... More

This is without a doubt the best school to learn or improve ones skills. Stefan, who runs Kitexcite, has been kitesurfing and giving lessons for years. And one of the many things that makes Stefan #1, is that he is not only passionate about kitesurfing, but he cares greatly about the progress of the people he teaches. Like many other... More

I had the best experience working with Stefan at Kitexcite to learn kiteboarding! It was my first introduction to the sport and I was not sure what to expect in terms of being able to catch on or progress during one week in Cabarete, DR. I am thrilled with how everything went and can't wait for our next trip back!... More

I had the very best experience of learning kite-surfing in the Dominican Republic. Stefan, Kitexcite's boss, taught me personally. He has been a fantastic coach and communicator, fluent in English and German. He made me aware of all the little mistakes that can hinder you to make efficient progress. The process was thus very happy and encouraging. I look forward... More

Stefan is one of the best teachers I have had in any activity. He doesn't waste your time or money, and gets right to the important stuff. I looked at other programs that had you watching videos while you were paying for time. Stefan gives you access to those videos to watch on your own time, this way you can... More

Learning kite boarding is not always an intuitive matter. Instruction is definitely needed. A kite boarding instructor needs to have knowledge of the sport, patience, lots of different kinds of equipment, and a concern for safety. Stefan at Kitexcite has all of these things. Stefan has been kiting and teaching kiting for many years. He has the patience to impart... More

Before lessons with Stefan, I had many lessons here and there and it was waste of time and money, as they would just put me on water and expect me to ride, then rescue me in an hour and give feedback. Stefan has a different, 1-1 effective approach with game changer radio helmet and videos. He knows the sport deeply,... More

Great people, location, teachers. They do it right at Kitexcite. Other places might get you out on the water faster but these guys teach you everything you need to know.
