Tribe Watersports is located in Medina Palms on Watamu beach. Kitesurfing in Watamu is some of the worlds best due to a variety of conditions that the bay provides. These include large sand bars perfect for learning or for flat water freestyle and a reef that spans the length of the bay which creates epic surf for the wave riders amongst you.
Tribe is owned and managed by Ben Kelliher who was raised in Watamu and has been teaching watersports for over 12 years.
Specialising in kitesurfing, Ben is currently one of the most qualified instructors in the world. Over the last five years Ben has spent his time designing the worlds finest watersports facility and is now proud to open its doors in his childhood home Watamu.
