Meet Our Staff

Anastasia Kidd

Owner & Supervisor

Anastasia is an instructor and the founder and owner of RushMore Kiteboarding School. She is an aviation professional who spent years working as a UN peacekeeper in Africa. While on R&R in Cape Town (which quickly became her home away from home), she discovered her passion for kitesurfing, and now she wants to introduce as many people as possible to this wind-powered watersport. 


In her own words, “It’s like riding a bicycle, once you learn it, you’ll never forget it. I want to teach people what they’re missing. You don’t just jump, you glide and hover and I love the feeling of flying".


Outside of work when she’s not studying, she likes to cook, listen to music and spend time with her schnauzer. Her other hobbies are: sports, traveling, long road trips, braaing (South African version of a barbeque)  with friends, fish tacos and a couple of cold beers.
