Kiteboarding in Belize
Kiteboarding at Adventure Island
Glover’s Reef, where our island is located, is one of the least crowded areas in the country and one of the top Belize vacation resorts. There’s no one out there kiteboarding except us! There are two options for kiteboarding at our island:
–If you are experienced, bring your own kites, harnesses, and assorted gear, and you can use our boards as part of your all-inclusive package. No other gear is available to rent.
–If you are a beginner, or don’t own your own gear, you will use our Belize kitesurf school. All kiteboarding gear is included with lessons. Advanced kitesurfing lessons are available December – March only.
Kiteboarding for Kids
There is a minimum age of 12 for kiteboarding lessons, which involves leaving the island by raft and traveling about 2 miles to our kitesurf area, which is a bit deeper. Please see the Kitesurfing Lessons page for more about availability of kitesurfing for kids between the ages of 12 and 15. The minimum age limit is due to kids needing to be of a certain size, height, and weight to be able to handle the gear.
It may be possible to take somewhat younger children under perfect conditions with a parent along to assist on a single-student lesson. This is up to the kitesurf instructor on site, and cannot be figured out in advance.
We will loan you a board
By having a full selection of twin tip and directional boards available, kiters will only have to bring their kites, lines, and harnesses to avoid the hassle of traveling with boards.
Slickrock does not provide kites or other kitesurfing gear except for school use.
We recommend kiteboarders bring two sizes of kites, a 14-16m and a 9-12m to cover the average conditions found on the island.
