My daughter and I booked a kite surfing lesson with Albon last November while visiting Bora Bora. He gave us a great introduction, but the wind died down to nothing only a short while into our lesson. So instead, Albon took my daughter wakeboarding. She'd never done it before, but he had her up and looking like an old pro... More

I was just on Bora Bora and did a lesson with Alban. For scheduling and wind direction reasons out of Alban's control, we were unable to do the downwinder which was planned. Alban did a nice job of giving me tips on kiting, so no complaints there. Nice guy, good equipment, though he really could benefit from a radio helmet... More

Hello We are sorry that you think the kite spot is not safe but riding in the lagoon is normally safer than the ocean , isn't it ? We do use a safety boat and follow the student in down wind for 8 years right now. However to access to this type of lesson , you must have to water... More

Bora Bora is a beautiful spot. The Color of the water is unreal. The air and sea temperatures were perfect. Alban offered excellent instruction tips and made my time on the water really enjoyable. I am a much better kiteboarder than when I got here. Watch out for the reef! Alban will make sure you avoid it. Be Safe

Went stand up paddleboarding on bora bora. Alban (the guide) was fantastic. He was on time, waiting in his boat outside our hotel. He's friendly and laid back and very knowledgeable. Because both my friend and I were proficient paddleboarders, he modified his tour to allow us to cover more distance and see more. He was happy to take our... More

Stayed at St. Regis, Alban picked me up in his boat and we headed out. Went near the airport where winds were steady and I rode a 12M kite and had the best time. Called Alban two days later as I wanted to get as much time as possible kiting. He picked me up in the afternoon and the wind... More

My brother and I went kitesurfing / snorkelling with Alban (the owner of the school) and had an amazing time! Alban is very friendly / patient and fun to hang out with during the activities - he is a seasoned instructor and knows Bora in and out - was a great opportunity to discover the lagoon and all the hidden...

I wish that I could give more than 5 stars! Albon is the finest instructor of any sport that I have experienced in my lifetime. Kite-boarding requires an understanding of how to harness a powerful force of nature with a very delicate touch, and Albon was able to communicate this to me in a patient, encouraging, and motivating manner. My... More

Had a great time. Had zero experience with the sport prior to this trip, and after visiting Alban, can't wait until the next time I have the chance to try it again. I was only with him for 2 hours and got through 2.5 of 3 lessons required to get on the board, this may have been different if we... More

I have been meaning to learn to kite surf for 5 years and finally had the opportunity. I had two excellent lessons with Alban and was able to ride. This is entirely due to his superb instruction and approach to teaching. He always gave the perfect amount of instruction, guidance, and encouragement and made me feel safe the whole time.... More

Alban took us out paddle boarding today and it was amazing. We paddled along the southern reef just off Bora Bora. We saw rays, sharks and many fish. He traveled along side us in his boat so we could take breaks, get some water and he even took some photos of us. The water was calm and as clear as... More
