As absolute beginners, we took our first kite lessons here. The instructors Alex and Joao are very professional and made us feel safe at all times. After a week of lessons we were both able to ride to left and right, which confirms their quality as instructors! The kite spot is very good, with a lot of wind most of the time. As a beginners, it was sometimes quite hard to cope with the waves which were a little high at times. However, this is not in the hand of the kite school. The equipment was also very good, except for the lifevests, which were of bad quality. If you are a bad swimmer and need a small size, it may be worth bringing your own. We had a great stay at the Seabreeze Kite Club and can definitely recommend it!

Dear Lorena,

Thanks for your stay with us at Seabreeze Kite Club. We loved having you here and we are certain that you and Ursin have a wonderfull time together enjoying this sport together in Swiss.
The team would like to thank you and the insight of changing the life-jackets was a good point and it is been replaced.

We hope to see you back maybe in The Philippines at our other kitesurfing school and location.
Awesome guys!

Superb spot for both beginners and confirmed wave riders. Wind is guarantee, staff is friendly and professional, equipment is new, flat water in lagoon makes a safe and great practice zone for students. I highly recommend it.

Eric,

It was a pleasure to see you and to ride with you here at Seabreeze Kite Club. For the other people who are reading this: This was the person who mentioned this amazing spot in the first place, when I was looking with my wife to open a school.

It was the best choice ever Eric.
Hope to see you again soon.

We woke up 5am at Kuala Lumpur and by 10am, we already met Maurice! The journey is such a breeze, 1:30 hours flights and surprisingly short taxi drive of 20mins from airport to Yudis (this part I like the most)!

I took my directional board lessons here with Joao and the instruction was given very details and with lots of patient.

We filled three days with 15-30+ knots wind! Has my first ride on the 7m with 136 tt (I am 80kgs).

It's a great retreat place, not crowded but with good companion of others Kiters, we left Aceh with big smiles and will definitely visit Maurice and his team again!

Seabreeze Kiteclub is a terrific place to learn to kite. Maurice runs a smooth operation, is ultra safe and rents good equipment. The instructors to hand are excellent and we spent our time with Alex, who is patient, thorough and skilled in his approach to teaching and explaining the sport. The spot is beautiful; a large lagoon with plenty of space for novices and wave riding for experienced riders further out. Highly recommend this place to learn the sport and also to have a relaxing post kite experience with sundowners at the club. We had a fantastic time with good wind, top teaching and great people. Thank you Maurice and Jo for an awesome holiday!

Abigail and Chris,

What a great couple and a blast you had. Sooo much progression is awesome.:)
You took so much control in riding and going upwind was fabulous.
We loved the sundowners and we miss that at the moment. :)

You both will love the kitesurfing part together and search for holidays to enjoy this amazing sport.
We will for sure keep in touch and it was lovely to meet you both.

Thanks,
Maurice and Joanna

Spent 13 days in Banda Aceh - kited 11 of these at Lhoknga with great conditions. Snorkelled at the nearby island of Pulau Weh the other two. Great spot for kiting in the waves and a beautiful beach. The guys at Seabreeze kite club are super friendly and great fun to hang out with. Although we had our own gear with us they have a range of kite gear available for hire if need be. As well as being available for gear hire and lessons, they were full of tips for exploring the area.
