Jean-Philippe, the creator of Pacific Kite has been passionate about board sports since forever. Former BMX pro in the 90s, he regularly practices surfing, kitesurfing and paragliding in Tahiti.
Jean-Philippe has been kitesurfing for many years in the lagoons and on the reef waves of the region. The different activities have provided him with a vast know-how on the best spots and the ideal weather conditions in Tahiti.
A stickler for safety and security, Jean-Philippe will guide and advise you throughout your lesson, to help you learn in the best possible conditions.
He works alongside Benjamin, a kitesurfing instructor who has over 13 years of experience and together they make an excellent team.
