The Story of Kitesurf Cayman

Walter Fajette met Jhon Mora at his kite school while vacationing in Peru. He loved Jhon's teaching technique and brought Jhon to The Cayman Islands for 3 months. Walter then partnered with Neil Galway and purchased kite equipment and Kitesurf Cayman was born. Now operating in it's 11th season, Kitesurf Cayman is one of the best places in the world to learn to kite.
 
We are very proud to be involved with the growth of our amazing kite community since it's inception. Our priority is learning in a safe environment and to introduce new people to the sport of kiting. Watching new kiters grow makes us proud to do what we do. We always use the best equipement on the market provided by Waterman Cayman Surf Co.

WALTER FAJETTE

Walter is one of the founders of Kitesurf Cayman.

 

Born in Italy, Walter moved to the Cayman Islands 25 years ago. Since then, he has developed what is probably the best kiteboarding school in The Cayman Islands. Walter has worked hard to create a kiteboarding school that provides customized lessons in a fun and safe environment. At Kitesurf Cayman, tuition is tailored to suit the individual and support staff and a support boat are on hand at all times. Lessons take place at Barkers Beach in safe, shallow, uncrowded waters.

 

Kitesurf Cayman’s one-to-one teaching technique in a quiet, open area of warm, crystal clear water means students can concentrate on learning while having fun in a relaxed, informal environment.

NEIL GALWAY

Neil is one of the founders of Kitesurf Cayman.

 

Neil is known as one of the first kiters of the Cayman Islands. He has been kiting and windsurfing for over 30 years and also enjoys big wave riding and Winging. He was one of the original kite gear importers of Cayman and he has since passed the sport down to his children who are also active kiters. If you want to find Neil, you can always find him enjoying the extreme conditions of a Nor'wester when one hits the Cayman Islands.
