I contacted Sailsports via email before my trip to San Pedro but they never bothered to reply. When I arrived and went to go and speak to them to discuss kitesurfing lessons I found the guy in charge very unfriendly and actually quite rude. He refused to take me out for any lessons as he said the wind wasn't strong enough and said to come back tomorrow to see if it was any better. At first I thought this was fair enough as he was the expert, not me. However, after waiting 2 days he still said the wind wasn't good enough and seemed completely uninterested in getting any business from me. I'd seen other people out kitesurfing in the past 2 days so I decided that maybe he just couldn't be bothered with giving any kitesurfing lessons and that I was just wasting my time with him.....This was when I decided to contact the other kitesurfing school in San Pedro, Kitexplorer. They replied to my email immediately and were very helpful and friendly. They also interestingly informed me that the wind had been fine the past few days and that they had all been out riding whilst I had been sat on the beach wasting the precious time that I had on the island! Whilst out with Kitexplorer I also met someone else who had exactly the same experience with Sailsports.
If you're looking to kitesurf whilst in San Pedro, I wouldnt bother wasting your time with Sailsports!! Just head straight to Kitexplorer in town where they will be more than happy to help you. I had a great time with them, was extremely satisfied with their lessons and left with a smile on my face :) !!
