Excellent kite school and gear hire. They run out of a beach shack on the beach and it's a short walk from the town of Lhoknga.

Maurice and Joanna (the owners) are absolutely lovely and my instructor (Jaoa) was absolutely brilliant. The shack has cold drinks and hot coffee at very reasonable rates and the hire gear was absolutely top notch.

I stayed at Yudi's (which is where the kite school is based when not on the beach) and that was less than 10 minutes walk to the kite surfing location.

Wind (late August to early September) was good enough to kite about 50% of the time so would recommend going earlier in the season if possible as I was told that was better wind.

I was surfing with Seabreeze in Lhoknga Beach; close to Banda Aceh in indonesia.

I was taken care of from my arrival; which was really nice
Spot and gear were properly explained and the selection of nice, new kites was really good.

Maurice and Joana which are running the place are really nice and easy going as well. So we had a real good time at the beach, even if not in the water.
Also my girlfriend which isn't kiting enjoyed to hang out here.

The kitespot itself is definitely not amongst the easiest I have been to. This is mostly to the varying rythms of waves.
However, wind and wind direction were great and so it was a good chance to learn how to handle the element.

If there is another chance to come back I would definitely take it. Really loved our stop here.

Spent a few weeks in Aceh this summer and decided to give kitesurfing a go, could not have asked for a better place to learn! Maurice and Jo are super welcoming and the school is a great place to chill out as well as kitesurf. Joao and Alex are great instructors, always up for a chat and very patient, even though I was a slow learner :) Lastly, Lhoknga beach is a beautiful spot, clear blue lagoon surrounded by empty, white-sand beach - definitely worth a visit for both beginners and experienced kitesurfers! It's worth bearing in mind that the wind can be a bit temperamental, so if possible, make sure to check the weather forecast beforehand.

Faryaal,

You were great! We hope that you are continue with your newest passion in Holland and that you think of nice warm weather and water when you step in that wetsuit over there.:)

It was amazing to have you with us, almost every week-end as a "getaway" from Banda Aceh.
Keep on rocking and maybe see you in Holland.

Thanks,
Maurice & Joanna + Seabreeze Kite Club team

We stumbled into kite surfing after hearing a swiss couple talk about it while we were in Palau Weh. We went to Yudis guesthouse where we met with Maurice the owner of Seabreeze Kite School. He told us about everything that was involved and 2 hours later we were having our first lessons. Our instuctors Alex and Joao were very good and after the first day of learning to fly the kite we were hooked. We met some really great people and another family to hang out with. In all we took 4 days of lessons, definitely not enough but we had to leave. Our 15 year old son was up on the board going a bit in each direction. We still have a ways to go but the folks at Seabreeze really took care of us and we look forward to furthering our skills.

Amazing family! Great smiles and we hope that you are "Hooked" for life!

Send us some pictures if you have the chance to continue with kitesurfing and we will publish them on our website.
It was very nice to have you here with us and we hope to see you in Siargao, Philippines one day. :)

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!
