THE FOUNDER

Cyprus kitesurfing school KiteMed was founded in 2003. In the very early stages of kitesurfing in Cyprus, we realised that the area near Kiti, Softades village in Larnaca is ideal for water sport activities.

We are located at The Spot. It is the only place in Cyprus that is approved by the authorities to kitesurfing and the area has all the space you will need as a beginner to learn the fast rising sport of Kitesurfing, constant winds until sundown and all the shore break waves you will need as an advanced rider.

Breaks are not included in lessons. If a student requests a break, it will be counted as lesson time.
In all lesson prices all gear is included.

KITE CAMPS

A Kite camp, also know as a kite clinic or kite workshop, is a trip with a small group of riders and a pro kitesurfer who, will become your personal coach in order to boost your level like never before.
This is a great way to improve your kitesurfing skills, learn new tricks, meet other kitesurfers from around the world, and discover Cyprus, one of Europe’s Top kitesurfing destinations.
At Kitemed we are dedicated to safety in and out of the water.
We have been teaching since 2003 and we are still going strong!
Setting up kite camps or kite clinics just comes natural to us and this is the way to progress into the sport.
We are fortunate to have met some of the best kitesurfers during our traveling around the world just when it all started!
