Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We travelled to Aitutaki for kitesurfing and diving as a family with two teenagers for the first time. We heard about the kitesurfing here and were certainly not disappointed! The most commonly used kite spot is at Honeymoon Island and is simply stunning. People actually come here for honeymoon excursions, we just wanted to kitesurf.

The island is about a 15 minute boat ride across the lagoon from the main island and Mike will take you there for a reasonable fee on every day that the wind is on for kiting. He's great to deal with, there on time and will suggest other cool things to do if the wind might drop. We went to different amazing snorkeling spots with him.

There are some other transport providers around but they limit their service to dropping people of and picking them up later in the day. Not so Mike! He stays on the island with his kitesurfers and will operate an rescue boat if someone is in trouble and drifting towards the outer reef.

We can highly recommend to spend your time with Mike whenever you come to Aitutaki for kitesurfing!

Aitutaki was the perfect place to start kitesurfing. I was very happy to meet Mike, he took us to honeymoon every day when the wind was on. He gave me very helpful advise and the big board was very helpful.
Thanks, looking forward to see you again 👍
Cheers

If your keen to kite, Aitutaki is the place and Mike Lee is the man.
I have been trying this sport off and on for years, being 69y.o. and being on my bucket list I took to plunge and went to Aitutaki and Mike Lee. After Mikes tips and advice I am finally up and kiting. Mike is very humble and patient when one is learning, the place is exceptional and his equipment is new thus reliable.
If the wind is not good for kiting he will take you snorkelling or to other islands etc. He took us to swim/snorkel with huge GT’s a great experience, having big fish swim close to you is an awesome experience.
I don’t normally write reviews although this being so good I had to recommend my experience to others.

Best kiteboard company I’ve ever been with, Mike Lee (owner) was always on time, equipment was state of the art, easy boat shuttle over to paradise. Kiteboardin all day at your own leisure. Mike provides great advice and is immense with riders at all levels, progressing people amazingly. You can even bring your partner or friends on the islands to enjoy snorkelling etc while you kiteboard.

I had an such an incredible few days with Mike at Honeymoon Island. I’ve kited all over the world and this was potentially the most stunning spot I’ve been to. There’s a few flat water shallow areas, then you can go out exploring in the lagoon. I saw so many turtles whilst kiting! Mike was very accommodating, catering to everyone’s various needs, good fun and reliable. I would highly recommend heading out to Honeymoon Island with Mike and really hope I get to come back at some point!

Great crew, great conditions and I always felt safe and watched over. The gear I used was top notch and made my learning easy. Mid day the tide went low a Mike took us out to snorkel and we saw an amazing array of fish.. Coming back next year...

Don’t know where to start, but if you want an experience in kite paradise go with Mike, Boo, Jeno and Rick (kiteboard aitutaki is similar to website of south pacific kiteboarding) for an adventure. Such a great group of instructors! All very genuine people, super friendly, funny and experienced, and the kitespot is superb -incredibly safe for learning. There is always somebody on the beach watching the crowd, and kitesurf aitutaki is the only kiteschool there which does the rescues (if needed)
We rebooked our flight to stay another week and were almost in tears when we needed to leave. Highly recommended and will hopefully be back!

Favourite parts: the team, the location, the beautifully relaxed atmosphere…
I can’t wait to come back next year; warm turquoise water, white sand, turtles to watch… This must be one of the best spots in the world to learn and advance you kite boarding skills

Totally stoked how amazing this spot is! Warm flat water, consistent wind and clear blue water. Best to contact Mike before you fly to Aitutaki. He was super helpful and kind and picked us up from our Resort and took us to the most beautiful spot in the world, Honeymoon Island for kiteboarding and snorkelling.
We will definitely return and I am also keen on learning wing foiling. Mike will offer this soon.
