#288656 - 07/14/08 04:26 AM Kite Board Instructor
Belize-N-Us Offline
I took the boys to kite board last week on the island and was told the instructor was "gone for the season" by a guy working the shop in front of where the instructor was living.

We booked lessons on AC where we were told the Caye Caulker instructor was actually killed while kite boarding in high winds.

Which story is true?

If he was killed, was this not in the news or did I miss it?

There is probably a new instructor on CC, the old owner of the shop was killed in a kiteboarding accident and it was in the news.

That was about three years ago, wasn't it?

We met a nice young guy there in March this year, tried to book with him then but the wind was too calm.

I assumed that was the guy who was killed.

Thanks for the info.

You are confusing two shops:

1) A man named Michael was killed tragically when he was blown into his shop by a huge gust of wind. This did happen a few years ago. His shop has since been taken over by another proprietor and I am not sure they offer kite boarding anymore. This shop is located on the beach near Albert's mini mart in the center of town.

2) A second kite surfing shop is located near the split - behind the Angler's Abroad fish and fly shop. This kite boarding place is run by a Frenchman name Rudolpho and his operation is seasonal.

This is the guy we met. Very nice guy. I'm glad to hear he's OK.

Thanks
