HOW IT BEGAN

It all began back in 2014 with our first kitesurfing cruises in The San Blas Islands, Panama. Since then we have been working hard to discover new locations around the world. After running several trial cruises in different locations we found a perfect mix of - sailing, adventure and kiting! We now offer cruises in Greece, Sardina + Corsica, the San Blas Islands in Panama and the Grenadines!

To give you the best experience possible we have a kitesurfing guesthouse in Panama, Punta Chame. Not only because it’s an awesome kitesurfing location but we also need a place to base ourselves during the winter. It is also perfect for people on the San Blas cruise who want to extend their stay in Panama, or people just traveling through and looking for a place to kite!

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

  • We go to untouched kitesurfing locations that are only accessible by yacht.
  • We bring a group of like minded people together for one week where life long friendships are born.
  • We want to help everyone to improve there kitesurfing ability as much as they want to over the week. This is why we include coaching for free over the week.
  • Did we forget to say your on a yacht??

FUTURE PLANS

This is only the start of The Rider Experience as we hope to set up more kitesurfing resorts & cruises in more brilliant locations. Whenever we run a new trial cruise in a brand new location we always contact everyone that has been on previous kitesurfing cruises to let them know about the new adventure. And perhaps be some of the first to kitesurf in these new locations.
