What we do
Graykite’s mission is to share our love for kiteboarding on surf and snow with as many people as possible. It’s as simple as that. To help us do that we follow a teaching methodology that we have designed to maximise your progress and enjoyment, and to make sure we provide the best possible experience we use it to structure all the lessons at our kite schools in Tarifa, Boracay and Canmore.
To get our ideas and techniques across to you we’ve hand picked some of the finest instructors in the world to head up our teams.
