It's all about you
When you arrive at our school, you will find a team that are ready to suit your needs. We are ready to put in all our energy to guarantee that you are having fun during your learning experience and progression.
Our team's primary goal is to accelerate the student's learning curve through personal and individual lessons. To help achieve this goal, we offer private and semi-private lessons for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students.
Our teaching model
Our way of teaching is based on the International Kitesurfing Organization (IKO) methodology. This step-by-step approach allows instructors to tailor each kitesurfing lesson. As a result, our students become independent Kitesurfers more quickly and safely, making lessons a great experience.
