Coconuts Kite Ushongo is located on the beautiful beaches of Ushongo, in the Tanga region, on the Tanzanian coast. Towards the north there is Pangani (around half hour drive away) and further on Tanga town, while in the south you can find one of the newest National Parks, Saadani, and further on Bagamoyo and Dar es Salaam. This makes Ushongo a perfect gateway for international travelers as well as Tanzanian residents who are looking for a break.

We are the only kite surfing school operating in the area and we bring with us the experience gained by running our own school in Zanzibar. For the ones who seek a more relaxed atmosphere, as well as bigger waves, Ushongo is your place.

Ushongo is accessible via road from north and south as well as via the two airstrips of Pangani, one of which lies only 5km away. It can also be easily reached from Zanzibar via speedboat.

Emanuel (nicknamed Zabron Kite) is the owner of the school and the head instructor, with over 8 years experience teaching kite surfing and, as you will see from the pictures, he can do quite a few tricks! Emanuel is a certified instructor, so the school can provide you with a certification card when you take a full course with us, or update your current certification.


We want to offer you an unforgettable experience, giving you one of the best instructors in Tanzania and top notch equipment, as well as a spot which offers great conditions for kite surfing without being too crowded.

We use various brands of equipment and have a wide variety of sizes for both sails and boards. We also have equipment suitable to teach kids as well as a tandem kite for the ones who want to try the feeling of kite surfing with the security of an instructor close to you (well, on the board with you!!).

We can also organize kite surfing down wind trips in Tanzania and Zanzibar, so if you are an experienced rider looking for new adventures, please get in touch!

We can also come and teach at your location if the weather and spot conditions allow for kite surfing, so please feel free to get in touch to discuss the best options.

Please feel free to contact us to ask information, or just come and chill with the kite surfing family!
