Volkite was built in Istanbul/Burc Beach in the year 2000. After trying out windsurf, catamaran and wakeboard, kiteboarding entered our lives, grabbed us by the heart and our purpose solely became Kitesurfing.
Volkite Kiteboarding School first started instructing in Istanbul Burc Beach in the summer of 2005.
In 2000s in Kartalkaya and in Kartepe between 2005 and 2007 we’ve also provided with snowboard instructing.
We’ve resumed instructing snowboarding by creating Snowkite school and Snowpark in Uludağ between the years 2007-2010.
We came to discover Gökçeada in 2008 and we fell in love with its wind and nature. We’ve decided to locate and give life to Volkite there and that summer we got our first students to instruct.
Between the years 2008-2010 as Volkite School we resumed training athletes in Istanbul, Uludağ and Gökçeada.
In 2010, due to the uninterrupted northerly winds of Gökçeada being suitable for kitesurfing, we completely moved the school in Istanbul to the island, and now Volkite Gökçeada is our new home and focus.
In 2010, we hosted the kitesurfing development camp called “Progression is Everything” as Volkite.
We hosted the 2010 Tkba special race.
We held a kite festival in 2013 and 2014. We hosted the world-famous Kitemaker Zahit Mungan from Mardin and introduced the children to giant kites and kitesurfing.
In 2014, we created the Çamlıca Kitesurf Challenge, the idea of which belongs entirely to Volkite, with the participation of over 120 athletes. You can watch the summary of this extraordinary race here.
We remade Çamlıca Kitesurfing Challenge 2 in 2015, you can watch it here.
We remade Çamlıca Kitesurfing Challenge 3 in 2016, you can watch it here.
With its experience in board and extreme sports between 2013 and 2015, we organized dozens of races such as kitesurf, windsurf, snowkite, skateboard, mountainbike, canoe, gravity, etc., in many different locations under the sponsorship of Çamlıca Gazoz.
In 2000-2021, Volkite trained tens of trainers and thousands of students.
