Kitesurfing in Zanzibar

Wanna start kitesurfing? Or are you already kite-addict? – Awesome, you chose the right place!

Welcome to PAJE BY KITE and this incredibly beautiful tropical kite-heaven.

The perfect location for kiting in paradise has been found: the southern east coast of Zanzibar offer what a heart can long for –  and still represents a hide away far far away from touristy places.

A flat-water natural lagoon, waist deep turquoise sandy bottom water and of course friendly wind. The reef is far off-shore, after ample flat water, perfect for beginners, freestylers and riders of all levels.

Our reef itself offers amazing waves for the more experienced among us who are in love with wave riding, wake styling and free riding. GO STRAPLESS is the MOTTO.

The perfect association of this extreme sport, the laid back atmosphere and a bunch of enthusiastic friends inspired us to built one of Zanzibar‘s most attractive, fully stocked kite centre offering lessons, rental, storage and a shop with equipment and accessories. IKO-certified instructors will lead you through the normal beginner and refresher course and teach strapless and freestyle clinics for those wishing to learn to jump, make their first backroll, un-hook, all the way through to nailing those passes.

Check out the side bar for details.

In the Lagoon

The lagoons on low and neap tides offer butter flat free style pools that keep even the hungriest of pros satisfied and on the other hand offer the perfect place for beginners to do their first meters on the board. There is plenty of space so the two don’t interfere with each other. Paje is also one of the easiest places for intermediate riders who have done a kite course and now just need the time on the water to become more confident and practice the water start. For more confident riders we have professional lessons in wave riding and freestyle, which will make it that much easier for you to reach that level you dreamt off.

In the Waves

40km of untouched coral reef parallel to the palm tree, white sand coastline offer head high waves with occasional visits from curious dolphins and whales. It’s the perfect place for beginner wave riders and like a skate park for the pros. We will have everything on offer for so you can progress with your kiting and return home with the sensation of achievement and having learnt something new.

If the wind is on, we offer and organise kite trips and downwinders around the island from the majestic sand islands in the west to the pristine endless coastline of the east. Paje By Kite is the only kite station with a 17ft 125hp kite boat brought in to satisfy all adventurous kiters that want to find the perfect spot.

If there is no wind, there are many activities to keep you entertained and make sure that you will return home with many good memories of Zanzibar. To mention just some:
