Kite St Croix/ Paddleboard St. Croix has been in business here since 2000 offering two of the fastest growing water sports around on the best playground for either one–St. Croix! “We have been ambassadors and promoters of kite boarding and stand up paddleboarding since they were introduced,” says owner and instructor Bill Kraft.
Bill’s a true water man who grew up as a professional ocean Life Guard and surfed, windsurfed, kiteboarded and paddleboarded professionally. He is one of the top instructors in the US, his techniques are state-of-the-art, and he’s taught over 1000 people to kite surf with a stellar reputation intact (see Trip Advisor).
Kite St Croix / Paddlesurf St Croix is a full-service watersports operation that is licensed and insured. Learn and work out knowing you are in the hands of a real experienced water man. Safety and ‘quick learning’ are their priorities. Learn to ride in three days! All classes are done with chase boat and helmet radios. The school and instructors are PASA and WPA certified.
Paddleboarding has now become a huge part of the business as well! Both Bill and his wife, Isabelle Picard, race paddleboards professionally and are sponsored by JP Australia and Werner Paddles. They are committed to sharing their love and passion for the sport, and offer an amazing venue at Chenay Bay Beach Resort, to practice SUP–offering lessons, SUP yoga, SUP Fitness, and Race Training.
Rent a paddleboard, kayak or snorkel equipment and go off on your own to enjoy the beautiful surroundings at Chenay Bay on St. Croix’s East End. Groups accepted! Check our website for Beginner to Advanced Packages. “Most of our clients come back to St. Croix every year!”
