┬áBased on Diani Beach in Kenya, Quest Kiteboarding is the South Coast’s premiere kiteboarding and watersports centre.

Not only do we specialise in kitesurfing training packages and IKO Assistant Instructor courses developed to kickstart a professional career in watersports, we cater for a variety of equipment rental options including kite buggy, traditional surf and S.U.P Paddleboards, body boards and kayaks.

In addition, we organize accommodation at various locations along the coast, run guided kitesurfing, snorkelling and dolphin spotting day trips to Funzi Keys, Wasini and Kisite Marine National Park as well as excursions to the Shimba Hills and Sheldrick Falls waterfall.

No holiday to Kenya is complete without a safari game viewing adventure experience which we also offer in the form of customised bush and beach kite safari trips tailored to specific requirements and itineraries.

Utilizing years of teaching and riding experience, both here in Africa and abroad, we guarantee professional fun tuition, helpful advice and a quality of service that only dedication, motivation and expertise can ensure.

All our lessons are run according to IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) standards with international certification upon completion of full courses. Our team of passionate Instructors aim to ensure you learn in a safe, controlled and relaxed atmosphere using the latest equipment available on the market.


Diani Beach offers sublime conditions for all watersports lovers, consistent cross-on trade winds, offshore reef protecting the shoreline creating shallow flat lagoons for learning and freeriding, warm clear azure waters and lots and lots of space.

This combination of elements guarantees the perfect fast paced learning and training environment, so whatever your needs or requirements, you can be sure that the experience is both fun, educational and above all else, safe!


Whether it be participating in one of our courses, lounging around at the kiteschool chill zone enjoying the beach vibe and relaxed atmosphere or heading off on a safari adventure; we welcome everybody to our kitesurfing and tropical beach lifestyle!


We understand just how exciting it is to start to learn a new watersport and appreciate how at times, it may be all abit overwhelming or intimidating too. All our staff are experienced, professional individuals who have been working in the watersports and tourism sector for many years, are all IKO certified through in-house training programs and match the level of excellence that we require to work as a professional provider of affiliated watersports training.
