Kitesurf, which is a board sport based on wind control provided by kite, has become an increasing trend in recent years by increasing its popularity day by day. Although it looks like a power sport, it is a balance sport where you can balance the power with your body weight thanks to the trapeze attached to the waist and control the wind with the bar that acts as a steering wheel and the ride on the water with the board on your feet. Kitesurf, which can be easily done by all children over thirty kilograms and individuals of all ages, without the need for any sports infrastructure, is preferred by nature and sports lovers who want to get away from routine city life and relax.


It was established in 2012 by Kivanc and Savas, two trainers who have transformed their board sports passion into a lifestyle, on the coast of Gökova / Akçapınar Kiteboard. The adventure that started with Kıvanç and Savaş, whose main coaching branches were snowboarding, took the form of Kartalkaya snowboard in winter and Kitebase Gökova kiteboard trainer in summer with the participation of teammates. Experienced and professionally trained, this team can provide training in Turkish, English, German and Russian. Kitebase Gökova Kiteboard School has been continuing its activities since 2012 with its athletes, youth camps and Akyaka Kiteboarding Tours, and awaits its new guests for quality and reliable education.
