Quest Kiteboarding was established in 2012 on Diani Beach, which is located 30 kms south of Mombasa in the nearby Kwale County.


Our professional watersports centre is the premiere provider of accredited IKO training on the South Coast and specialise in all things kitesurfing related, be it beginner tuition or advanced riding technique to customised kite safari and day trips. We also provide kite buggy and S.U.P discovery courses and rental as well as cater for body board and kayak rental.


Voted Africa’s leading beach destination for 2014, 2015 & 2016, Diani is renowned for its world class white sandy beaches, clear turquoise water, coral reef and black and white Colobus monkeys.

This region of Kenya also experiences two consistently strong trade winds throughout the year which, combined with the expansive offshore reef creates a variety of perfect watersports conditions including great wave riding and downwinder sessions as well as flat, shallow, sandy lagoons for learning or freeriding.


 This variety of elements ensures a fast, dynamic learning curve no matter whether you are a complete beginner looking to get into the sport or an advanced professional athlete training for the upcoming season.

Quest Kiteboarding - Diani Beach added 7 new photos.

We are hiring!

Quest Kiteboarding, based in Diani Beach, on the south coast of Kenya, East Africa are seeking certified IKO kitesurfing instructors for the upcoming ‘’kusi’’ trade wind season.

Ideally, we are searching for a COUPLE who both hold a valid IKO or BKSA kitesurfing diploma and have at least one season of experience under their belt.

The season will start from mid - June until mid – September, during which time we experience 18 – 22 knots daily as a south easterly cross or cross-onshore trade wind.

Our teaching location has a fringing reef roughly 800 metres offshore which protects the shoreline and forms a lagoon on the inside which is perfect for teaching, free riding and foiling.

General riding conditions range from flat on the low tide to bump and chop as it rises and some small shore break on the higher tides.

The wind is steady and will generally start to build by 10.30-11.00am in the morning each day.

We search a professional, mature couple who love nature, share a passion for water sports, respond well to working within a team environment and always strive towards providing excellent customer care and attention when teaching or coaching.

English is our main language; however, we have many German and Polish clientele therefore these two languages would be an addition that we would value in our evaluation of applications.

We offer a commission- based salary, free accommodation and work permit for the duration of the season.

If you are interested in joining our vibrant team working on Africa’s leading beach destination, then please send a copy of your C.V, recent picture, IKO kitesurfing diploma and cover letter with previous experience to Jamie on:

Closing date for all applications will be on the 15th of March 2018.
