Awa Salu is a great kite school and especially its very friendly and cheerful owner Kim. She is very helpful, responds quickly to inquiries and has great service. I had an unforgettable time there. Keep it up, you're great.

Kim is an amazing kite board instructor with great knowledge, vibe, personality, attention to details and smart analogies to make learning a fun and easy experience. She broke down the steps so it’s more digestible and was flexible adjusting teaching method and pace based on my learning outcome. I would love to come back to laugh and make a splash with Kim again!


St Joriis baai where Kim bring her students and those, like myself, wanting to surf a bit by their own offers a perfect spot for both beginners and advanced surfers. Kim has a beautiful place where she keeps a good set of equipment for rentals and she is very accomodating helping you out where needed. She is also extremely nice as a person and very good at what she does.

If you want the guarantee of being able to kitesurf after 3 days, then you need to have Kim as your instructor. I have had and seen many instructors but she is a one of a kind. She is unbelievable with kids and has a unique way of explaining and teaching you the sport. Plus, she has very good gear! So don’t hesitate and book her if you want to be a kiter!


Kim has done a tremendous job in teaching my 14-year old daughter how to kitesurf in a very controled way. By doing so Kim avoided any stress and equiped her with surprisingly mastery of the kite and got her up riding with a lot of control in just 4 lessons. Because of the great experience we did three more lessons and now my daughter is a confident and independent rider and I look forward to many years of kitesurfing fun together. All Thanks to Kim!


Beautiful kite surfing spot and a very professional teacher with a wonderful personality. Perfect conditions to learn the first steps of kitesurfing or to improve your skills if you're more experienced already. Would recommend and would definitely go back to her if I'm in the neighbourhood


Super nice staff. Good equipment, just overall great experience. I learned to kite from 0 to okay in 6 sessions Can recommend!

Wow, I chose a weeklong trip in Curaçao to spend some time kiteboarding for my B-day. Leading up to the trip the wind was looking great but unfortunately as we got closer the wind shifted and unfortunately never cooperated. However, here’s where the 5*s comes in… Kim checked in with me every day and sometimes multiple times per day. Always with a great attitude and trying to find a way to make it work. Although the wind never turned in our favor, I was really impressed with the effort that the Awa Salu team put in to try to make it work. Thanks for all the effort. We’ll just have to come back.


During our vacation in Curacao we (dad with two adult children) decided to take some kitesurfing lessons with Awa Salu. We had no experience in kitesurfing. When we first arrived there was quite some wind and we saw the people on the lake with huge kites flying over the water and we were wondering what we got ourselves into. Kim is very hands-on and teaches in the water (not all kitesurfing schools do this). As other reviewers already mentioned she has a great sense of humor and makes the classes really fun. I felt that everyday we made progress and by the end of the 5 day course we all were able to do the water start and stay on the board (my kids a little bit longer than me). Kim is very analytical in her approach. On day 3 I hit a roadblock and she quickly identified the issue, had me do some exercise and after that the roadblock was cleared. Kim has state of the art equipment in all sizes for little kids to bigger sizes, she gave us rash guards and sunglasses to borrow. She has sails for every weather type (bigger kites for when there is little wind, smaller kites for when it is storming). I wanted a shared experience with my kids, an experience on which we could later look back and we got exactly that and more. It was so much fun and we were sad when our classes were over. When we return to Curacao next year we will definitely book some more classes with Kim and improve our kitesurfing!

Amazing Experience. Quality Gear and a amazing spot. The progression i made was excellent. I had some experience but we managed to improve all that. Kim is an excellent teacher who looks into your current skillset and improves that with devotion and i must say a lot of humor. The wholeout experience was a blast. The next time i visit Curaçao i wont hesitate to book a lesson again.
