Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

Well, other than that the lessons cost is nearly zero - instructors usually just hang out around bored and have plenty of time to share experience and give free advice If you want to learn you should get tuition from someone that takes their job of teaching seriously and responsibly. Having friends...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

IKO always requested that instructors have the medic first aid. The school I mention is against the IKO saying they are ripping the money and that they know better. I have found that all the people I find that are against IKO are mostly against doing things correctly. I don't agree on being part of ...

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

I can tell you it's the school that shows up in the first search results of Google and it's also the most rated in Trip advisor. They send several people to the hospital.

Re: What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

Tiago, that is a very helpful video. All of your advice is good. However, I'm surprised that you describe group lessons with multiple kites in the air. I've taught hundreds of students (up to 4 students per lesson), but I've never used more than one LEI kite at a time. I would never consider having...

What is the cost of a kitesurf lesson?

This is one of the most crucial decision points for me. It is interesting how schools often count the lesson time you had and how important this time is in the student perception. Often the students get frustrated as he has been sold something that he is not getting. For some years we have changed, ...

Re: 6 points on how to choose a kiteschool - 01 Location of the school

Nice vid, clear and simple. Covers most of what I would tell a beginner. One other thing I would say is to ask about and find a school that focuses more on safety & launching/landing than riding the board. I know everybody wants to get up and ride as fast as possible BUT as you said in the vid the ...

Re: Do you know the Kitesurf Right of Way Rules? Find out how to determine if you have priority

How about when there is a decent shore break and someone is standing on the beach with their kite in the air talking for 3 minutes and suddenly decides to head out while someone else is riding the ‘wave’?
