Welcome to Peru Kite – The first kitesurfing school in Peru since 2004.
We are a British and Peruvian operated mobile kite school. With years of experience traveling the world in search of the best conditions we proudly put our knowledge together to create PeruKite.
Our competent, highly motivated IKO certified instructors will ensure that you learn the importance of the knowledge needed to become an independent safe Kiteboarder. Our aim is to help students progress quickly and safely, but most of all to relax, have fun and enjoy the experience. Whether this is your first time or you are looking to progress your skills further, you cannot go wrong with this school, instructors or the location.
Perukite was re-opened in 2018 under the new leadership of professional kiteboarders, Casey Fairhurst, and Scotty Metcalfe, who leads a team of IKO certified instructors.
“We are proud to undertake the rebirth of this fantastic location with new equipment, new team, and a passion that we excitedly instill in this venture”
Meet The Team
IKO Level 2 Instructor
KITE | SUP | PARAGLIDE
After spending 6 years in the British Army, Scotty went from soldier to surfer, and quickly thereafter discovered kiteboarding. Together with Casey, he has since dedicated his life to riding and to teaching. Scotty is a highly motivated instructor, a perfectionist dedicated to delivering messages and knowledge uniquely and effectively across his range of students and skillsets. He is a charismatic blend of focus and chill, the result of his diverse military background and surfer nature. He has many years of experience, and teaches students from beginners to advanced, in flat water and big waves. Scotty has taught kitesurfing on nearly every continent on earth – apart from the Arctics. He is passionate and personable, and well-known for quickly connecting with people from all walks, raising their expectations and helping them to exceed them. You may start off meeting as strangers but you’re sure to finish the experience leaving as friends.
IKO Level 2 Instructor

Casey was born in the UK, but left home to travel the world when she was just 18. As a lifelong adrenalin and adventure seeker, she had long been an extreme sports fan, but her life changed forever when she discovered kitesurfing in 2013. Beyond the thrill of riding, she also quickly discovered her passion for teaching. Casey became an Instructor that same year, jumped into managing kitesurfing schools and has since taught in some of the best locations in the world – including Cape Town, Western Australia, Egypt and Sri Lanka. She is a sponsored competitive athlete, well known for her big air tricks, and yet she is approachable and personable for riders at every level. Casey’s teaching style is a cocktail of energy, easy-going attitude, conviction in her skill, simple tools, humor, and dedication to each individual having their own dream experience.

Original Founders and Advisors
PeruKite was originally founded by IKO level 2 instructors José Rosas and Katia Salas in 2004. Although not on the front line of the business anymore they still both play a crucial role in PeruKite by providing professional advice from their years of experience.
José, locally known as El Padrino AKA The Godfather is the owner of Paracas Group which successfully runs 10 activities within Paracas.
Katia was the head instructor for many years at the birth of PeruKite and held the title for 2007 South America female champion and Best Kiteboarding Team Rider. Now Katia assists by repairing the school’s equipment as she is Peru’s NO’1 kite doctor.
I have to say my experience with kiteboarding is better than most, as mine was above average, I would go as far as to say exceptional as I had tried to learn kiteboarding before but my experience wasn’t all that good. Both Casey and Scott displayed a high level of competence and knowledge, knowing exactly what they needed to tell you and when. One would be surprised as how much difference this makes in your learning curve.
I had the pleasure to be taught by and hang out with Scotty and Casey for a couple of weeks and my kite-boarding wouldn’t have been anything without them. They’re such pro’s! Their love for what they do and their infectious spirits makes it easy to learn from them and I can’t wait to go see them again @ Peru Kite! <3
Scott and Casey are great instructors!!!! Their passion is extremely contagious. These two made me love Kitesurfing and now I’m addicted. They are teaching with headphones and because of that they can instantly correct your mistakes. It was just wonderful to have them around. Casey is always open for answering even the dumbest questions and so is Scott. They never get tired of being there for you. It’s absolutely worth a try!
