Kiteboarding – Making Waves in Boracay
Do you want to feel adrenaline pumping through your veins as you glide across the clear-blue ocean? Try kiteboarding.


Kiteboarding or kitesurfing is a thrilling watersport that makes use of the power of a kite and the wind in order to make a kiteboarder sail and propel through the water while riding a small surfboard. For this to happen, the wind must be strong and steady and must be harnessed through the kite properly. Boracay, with its northeastern monsoon is an ideal place for this type of watersport because of its steady winds that last up to weeks.


If you want to try kiteboarding or are already into the sport, head to Surfers Home Boracay – the home of kiteboarders in Boracay. The resort offers kiteboarding lessons for beginners, as well as other water activities for the more experienced kiteboarders. These include kite safaris and island hopping by kite.


Surfers Home Boracay is also an affordable yet comfortable resort to stay in when on the island. Choose from their seven bungalow cottages, each one of them fan-cooled and equipped with cable television, refrigerator, and a private toilet and shower with hot and cold water. The resort also provides Internet access for your use.


Surfers Home Boracay is a mere seven-minute walk to and from the famous White Beach. The resort also offers other activities such as jungle trekking, caving, and mountain biking. For all your dining needs, the resort houses Isla Bar and Restaurant, as well as a private barbecue area.
