Welcome to “Kahuna Surfhouse” Kitesurfing Center & Shop - Naish distributor

Kahuna Surfhouse was founded in 2008 and is situated in Mazotos Larnaca Cyprus.  We chose this spot for our school as it has the best wind conditions all year round on the island.  We set up the school with our concept always in mind: live life beyond the shore.  Water, wind and waves are our passion and sun, sand and beach is our lifestyle.  Our love for the sea is contagious and rubs off on everyone that has ever visited us and learnt to surf with us. Our school naturally exudes friendliness and companionship and we are always hosting beach barbeques and parties for our friends.  It is important to us that the school is multicultural and a good mix of locals and foreigners.  This is great advantage for visitors as they really integrate with the unique Cypriot culture.

Primarily, Kahuna Surfhouse is a kitesurf school and shop.  Instructors are all IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) certified. Elias Mantovanis is a qualified IKO level 2 instructor  with more than 4 years experience in teaching and promoting safety on the beach.  Our programs are tailored to teach and advise the beginner all aspects of kitsurfing, that is the theory, the practice, safety and helping choose the right equipment.  At the same time, our school is a favourite spot on the island for intermediate and advanced riders so rentals and free riding is very welcome.  The flat sea and shallow water make it a great spot for practicing tricks!

Kiteboarding will be in the Olympic Games 2016

The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has confirmed the final event and equipment selections for the Rio 2016
Olympic Sailing Competition to be Kiteboarding. After a long discussion with a lot of enthusiasm and support for both
sports, ISAF Council voted with a 19 to 17 majority that Kiteboarding will replace Windsurfing for the men's and
women's board events in Rio.

ISAF President Göran Petersson stated: "Kiteboarding has proven to us that it is ready to be included into the list of
prestigious ISAF Events and it is a fantastic addition to the sailing programme for the 2016 Olympic Games."

Sir Richard Branson, one of the IKAs Olympic Ambassadors and supporters from the very first minute added: “Well
we all flew a kite to get kiteboarding in to the Olympics and unbelievably the kite has landed in Rio! Kiteboarding is
now an Olympic sport! To celebrate this, myself, my family and a few friends will this week attempt to kite across the
English Channel to show off the beauty of kiteboarding.”
