I was warmly welcomed and made ​​even more excited to go kite surfing. The school has everything you need. Although it was not easy, they remained positive and kept believing that it would be possible for me to make a waterstart. And I eventually did! To be continued at Max.

I feel very lucky to have found this place by accident when I landed in Tarifa - very professional but at the same time warm and friendly. Mathieu assured me that he would have me on the water before I left and while I have to admit I was sceptical considering that I had never boarded or flown a kite... More
