Why Us

Kitesurf is Life!

The concept of our Kitesurf Life trips started back in 2015, when our founder Bento Pires Jr., hosted the first group from Long Beach, CA in his home country of Brazil. Since then, we have hosted many others Kitetrips and we anticipate more to come in the future. Let Bento and Romulo show you what it means to live the Kitesurf Life.
