Tribe Watersports provide the best learning environment for all watersports. Read on to discover why.
East Africa’s only BKSA approved school
Being the only watersports school in East Africa that is BKSA approved we are the only centre that is required to pass an inspection on the quality of service that is provided. This includes inspection of the equipment, facilities and our operations management. This is not to ensure we meet a minimum standard but that we meet a high standard of quality in both our training and facilities.
What you should be looking for when you turn up
When you turn up for your course there are a number of things that you should receive as minimum safety requirements. These include a 50N buoyancy aid (not a impact jacket) and a helmet. These will need to be the correct fit for you. Your instructor should have a safety bag, safety knife and a whistle. Regarding kitesurfing you should also only fly an LEI Kite standing in the water.
Important material that should be covered
All our courses run through the tried and tested guidelines of BSUPA, RYA or BKSA . Please see the link (BKSA course strucutre
). This will give you an idea as to what you should cover on a kitesurfing course. Although learning to partake in any watersport is great fun it is important that we all consider our own safety whilst we are doing them.
Rescue and storage facilities
We are onsite in Watamu throughout the season to offer rescue and safety support for all our customers and club members. We achieve a safely managed beach by providing trained staff to keep watch and assist when on the beach and out on the water. On top of this we also have secure equipment storage facilities for those clients who don’t want to store their equipment in the hotel room or house. Your kit will also be dried and cleaned on a daily basis when stored with us.
Rider hotline for courses and club members
At Tribe we strive to give all our customers continuous support as watersports enthusiasts. This can be anything from helping you choose the right equipment to buy to being on the beach assisting you with a problem with your gear. We have set up a rider hotline for all our club members and students where they can call, email or Skype for advice on anything watersports related whenever they need it.
Range of accommodation options
We are lucky enough to be able to offer a wide range of accommodation options in Watamu from luxury to budget. Accommodation is available for individuals, couples and large groups. Whether you are looking for a private beach house or all inclusive resort there is something to suit all tastes. We aim to make your holiday as memorable and special as possible so please get in touch with any accommodation inquiries.
