Cambodia Kiteboarding has operated out of Villa Vedici riverside resort in Kampot for the past seven years.
The IKO is the world’s leading kiteboarding organisation, specializing in kiteboard education, promoting safe practices and enhancing the highest standards for the industry.
Lessons are held on the Kampong Bay estuary, 7 km’s down river from Villa Vedici resort and offering stunning views of Bokor mountain and Phu Quoc island.
It’s a very safe area for teaching, it’s a big bay with shallow, warm water. You will have plenty of room for making mistakes, not worrying about other kiters around you.
The windy seasons in Kampot run from April to begin October and November to January.
If a day does not bring enough wind, you can always practice your balance on the SUP – the stand up paddleboard!

My name is Frank van Zoggel and I am from the Netherlands. Kiteboarding is something special which gives joy to my life. I passed my Instructor Training Course (ITC) in may 2009 and have been teaching ever since.
My first experience with this sport felt so good that I knew I wanted more. I graduated Sports Management, Leisure and Outdoor with 2 majors; PADI Dive Instructor and IKO Kiteboard Instructor.
Villa Vedici is a resort which is based on a business plan that I set up. At that time I didn’t know that I would emigrate to the Kingdom of Cambodia.
So here I am, not leaving this spot ever again!
I’m Andreas, a Swedish guy who got so impressed by the kitesurfers in Cape Town in 2008 that I needed to give it a try. Honestly, I wasn’t a natural. I blame the tricky conditions; waves, cold water and great white sharks.
Once I got back to Sweden, in calmer waters it was a lot easier! That’s why I love the spot here in Cambodia – it’s perfect for teaching!
I worked as a PADI dive guide a few years ago, met a Dutch girl, moved to the Netherlands and did my IKO ITC there in 2014.
Currently on a break in NL but aiming to be back with you soon!
Ride hard, ride safe, ride again tomorrow!
Hey folks, My name is Will and I am from Germany.
I used to sit in an office, doing stupid work for greedy people until one day I thought : F**k it!, time for a change”! From this day on I started the journey to myself, with all things I enjoy the most and one of these is kiteboarding. I started the sport in 2014 and with the first time gliding over the water, feeling nature, forgetting everything around me, totally in the moment I got trapped in this sport. Three years later it was time for me to take an ITC and become an instructor, so I can share this feeling with others , enabling them to see and feel what I have seen and felt.
Come over to this spot and let me show you what it feels to be alive.
