Asia's 1st IKO kiteboarding center and the center where kite lessons professionalism was brought to Asia. Attention to safety and its position on the lagoon make it the no1 kite center on Bulabog Beach. Not full of flags and bling, but the real thing. Easiest kites to fly on Boracay for the fastest learning. Excellent selection of the latest equipment and a selection of premium brands retail make this the 1 stop kite shop on Boracay. Slingshot, Future, Nobile, LiP, Mystic, Prolimit + other premium brands.

The team from Ocean Republic was extremely helpful during my time in Boracay. Excellent kite surfing school and the equipment was also in very good condition. I would definitely recommend them, especially if you prefer Slingshot kites.
