We had a great time on this kite surfing course! Both Matheau the owner and Roberto our instructor were extremely friendly. With Roberto's instruction we progressed well finally getting up surfing. We had no wind one day so the lesson was postponed, which was a really good option as the next day was much better. Great fun!
