Kiteboarding since 2004
As a Florida native, I have spent the majority of my life on the water. My free time has always involved water- related activities such as kitesurfing, fishing, diving, snorkeling and surfing. I first learned how to kiteboard at the age of 12 and have been addicted ever since. My learning experience was very memorable and exciting. As an instructor, I strive to instill the same excitement that I felt while learning this adrenalin- filled sport. Kiteboarding will always be a part of my life. I hope to have the opportunity to introduce this lifestyle to you.

CHRIS MOORE
Co- owner of KiteProvo

Kiteboarding since the conception of the sport in 1999. Chris’ passion for the sport is only exceeded by his genuine personal interest in his student’s success. This passion is evident as he operates KiteProvo with Mike Fox.

Chris Moore has been involved in kiting professionally since 1990. He has been a business owner, professional athlete, entertainer, instructor, kite designer, and established the PASA, instructor certification program. His background started as a sport kite competitor/athlete, which took him all over the world and earned him the title of USA Master National Champion twice.

He has trained and certified over 1,000 instructors and has taught many thousands of students to kiteboard. He developed a formal teaching method that he used to build PASA and then taught others to adapt his successful methods. This has become the official certification system in place today.

Chris operated one of the United States largest kiteboarding resorts, the Kitty Hawk Kites Kiteboarding Resort from 1999 to 2014. Chris moved to Providenciales in 2014 after being enchanted with the amazing kiteboarding and SUP conditions available at this crowning jewel of the Caribbean.

GEORGES OULLET
Kiteboarding since 2013

From the first time I saw kiteboarders on the Tulum beaches in Mexico, I was hooked. The sport was so beautiful to watch and looked like so much fun that Iwas immediately fascinated and wanted to know more. I knew right then and there that it was something I wanted to learn. As Ideveloped as a kiteboarder and became mre entrenched, I noticed that I always felt motivated to share what I had been taught – to witness people experience the sport for the first time and see that familiar spark in their eyes is utterly priceless! I’m blessed to be able to teach for KiteProvo on the most beautifully pristine beach of Long Bay.
